Bad signs of the world: Flickr pool

I just lost half an hour of my life to the highly amusing "Bad Signage" Flickr pool, which sports hundreds of photos of bad and weird signs. This is a favorite photographic subject of mine — I think because bad signs are a kind of window into the most demented minds of other people, their humor, their malapropisms, their authoritarian tendencies, and their anxieties.
