The Funny Road Signs you Don’t Want to Ignore

There are some funny road signs that are good for a laugh but others are more serious. These are the signs that warn of wizards, pooping planes and all sorts of other nasty stuff. You don’t want to ignore them.

The Runaway Wheelchair Sign

The Funny Road Signs

Anyone who gets around on a wheelchair will want to get their brakes tested before going to this place. It seems as though a handy steep gradient takes you straight into the waiting jaws of a lurking crocodile. Just as you would expect, really.

The Wizard Sign

The Funny Road Signs

One of the worst things about driving these days is when those awful wizards stop you from passing from one place to another. Why don’t they just mind their own business and fight dragons, cast evil spells and do whatever else it is that wizards do?

The Badly Translated Sign

The Funny Road Signs?

If I’m being honest, if probably makes more sense to learn the original language this was written in than to try and understand the translation. It sure was nice of them to translate it for us but the result isn’t at all helpful to anyone.

The Detached Hand Sign

The Funny Road Signs?

Good Lord! It looks like a detached hand could attack your car in this place. This gruesome looking road sign appears to be trying to tell us something really important but I can’t work out what it is. Whatever it is, you don’t want to watch that old horror movie The Beast with 5 Fingers before you come here.

The Drunken People Sign

The Funny Road Signs

This is a funny road sign but might it could also save you from running over a prostrate drunken person who is crossing the road on all fours while using his personal force field to maintain a bottle in the air. It’s not something I’ve seen a lot but thanks for the warning guys.

The Weird Speed Limit Sign

The Funny Road Signs?

So, how fast exactly can I go here? Even the drunks who are crawling along the floor with their floating bottles would probably stop and scratch their heads at this one. It is 4 15/16 MPH you can go at here. That seems not only very slow but also improbably precise.

The Killer Tomatoes Sign

The Funny Road Signs?

We’re back to corny old horror movies for this one, aren’t we? I once caught a few terrifying minutes of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and I’ve never been able to look at salads in the same way since. I had always secretly suspected that it was the cucumbers that were most evil but it turns out that the annoyingly indecisive fruit / vegetable dudes are the one you need to be aware of.

The Plane Danger Sign

The Funny Road Signs

I like to think that I am intelligent enough to work out what most signs mean. Sure, if it read like gibberish or has a mysteriously detached hand on it I might struggle. However, when all it contains it the word “Danger” and the image of a small plane pooping on a car I think it’s pretty clear what we need to look out for here.

The Stupid Kids Sign

The Funny Road Signs

If it wasn’t for those stupid kids driving would be a lot easier, wouldn’t it be? Thankfully, there’s a funny road sign that reminds you to look out for them while you are behind the wheel.

The Worst Ever Halloween Outfits

Halloween is such a great time of year, isn’t it? At least it is if you don’t make the terrible mistake of dressing up in one of the worst ever Halloween outfits like these people did.

The Tampax Outfit

Worst ever halloween outfits

The absolute worst thing about this tragic Halloween outfit is the fact that the guy wearing it looks so smug. He really, genuinely thinks that he is the smartest person on the planet and possibly even in the entire Solar System. He’s not. He’s a guy who dresses up as a box of tampons.

The Sesame Street Dudes

Worst ever halloween outfits

I think that these two feckless fellows are meant to be Sesame Street characters whose faces have melted following a nuclear attack in which Big Bird got his feathers frazzled, although the presence of the rubber duck has me somewhat puzzled.

The Terrible Smurf Costumes

Worst ever halloween Costumes

If there is one thing better than a terrible Halloween outfit it is a 3 in 1 special. This group of cheeky trick or treaters have put some work into their look but it is, frankly, awful. The one who is looking in a mirror seems strangely pleased with the look, though.

The Star Wars Outfit Disaster

Worst ever halloween outfits

Star Wars is ripe for happy go lucky Halloween outfits. Sadly, this attempt to look like Princess Leila is just about the worst thing I have ever seen that didn’t involve any of the Kardashians. It’s so bad that I just don’t know where to start with it.

The Phone Outfit

Worst ever halloween Costumes

On the face of it, this is a fairly interesting and even clever outfit. However, the guy’s miserable, defeated attitude helps to drag it down. You really need to plaster a smile on your face and look the world in the eye if you’re going to wear an outrageous outfit like this one. This phone guy just wants the ground to open up and swallow him.

The Balloon Outfit

Worst ever halloween outfits

Does anyone out there even know what this weird Halloween outfit is meant to represent? It looks to me as though a lazy woman just stuck a few balloons on her t-shirt and, well, that’s it really. What a weird, mixed up world we live in these days.

The Soda Outfit

Worst ever halloween costumes

If you have a young child and a burning desire to dress them up as a bottle of soda there are many ways of going about it. Simply sticking a couple of parts of a plastic bottle on their body isn’t really making much of an effort in my book.

The Cutlery Outfit

Worst ever halloween outfits

Hmm, this expensive and highly time consuming outfit didn’t really work out all that well, did it? The chap with the cutlery on his hands clearly felt that his uncanny resemblance to a fictional superhero meant that he could get away with the cheapest and laziest Halloween outfit ever. He was wrong.

The Sheep Guy Outfit

Worst ever halloween outfits

Is this sort of thing considered normal behaviour in some parts of the world? On the one hand, I salute our sheep loving buddy for his ingenuity. On the other hand, this outfit is possibly the single most ridiculous thing I have ever seen in my life. It has also completely put me off the Shepherd’s Pie I was planning on having for dinner later on.

Crazy Gadgets That Have Got to Be Worth Giving a Try

The world is full of crazy gadgets but which ones are worth giving a try? The following are some that look weird but that might just enhance your life.

The Metal Detecting Sandals

Crazy Gadgets

Have you ever considered the possiblity of finding a treasure trove of buried Roman coins when you go on a beach vacation? It would certainly help to pay for all those trips to the local bars to get wasted every day. These sandals look comfortable enough that you might forget that you are looking for gold in the sand until the unit starts beeping uncontrollably and you fall to your knees to thank the good Lord.

The Ostrich Pillow

Crazy Gadgets

Sleeping in the airport is one of life’s most difficult things to do, right up there with listening to an entire Leonard Cohen album and standing on one leg while waving your arms round in circles. I once tried combining all of these things but fell over and woke up before So Long Marianne had even finished or my flight had been called. The Ostrich Pillow might just have helped me.

The B Tourist

Crazy Gadgets

Do you long for a bit of privacy on long flights? With the help of the B Tourist you can get up to all sorts of unsavoury stuff which only the passing air stewards will be able to see. They’ve seen a lot worse, so that won’t be a problem.

The Bone Fone

Crazy Gadgets

Why did this thing never take off in the way it deserved to do? The Bone Fone is the product of that grey area where technological innovation crashes into utter nonsense and comes out battered and bruised. Basically, it’s a radio that sends sound waves through your bones. I can imagine that it is good for followers of Metallica, Megadeth and possibly even Spinal Tap. Probably not so exciting for Leonard Cohen fans. You might still get lucky and find an old one for sale online.

The Travel Bidet

Crazy Gadgets

Having the ability to effectively clean my nether regions while travelling is an issue that I haven’t ever spent too long thinking about. However, upon some gentle reflection just now I can see that it is a good thing. Just think; while you are seated in a plane you could slip on your cunning B Tourist contraption for hiding behind and then give yourself a good clean.

The USB Pregnancy Test

Crazy Gadgets

Do you want to know if you are pregnant but find the idea of peeing on a strip of paper just so last century? In that case, you want a USB pregnancy test. Trust me, you really do. It works pretty much in the way you would expect it do, so you might want to practise squatting over your laptop just now.

Anti Wrinkle Glasses

Crazy Gadgets

We all worry about the wrinkles round our eyes once we get to a certain age. Thankfully, you can now live in a wrinkle free heaven thanks to these glasses. I was going to try and explain how they work but the pictures on the packaging explain the concept far better than I ever could. They even give you back a little smile, so they’ve got to be worth a try.

The Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

Anyone who has a cat in their life knows that it can quickly become an obsession. In that case, what you need is a stunning cat gift to move your obsession onto the next, even scarier level.

A Cat Lion Wig

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

If you want to transform your gentle cat into a roaring, ferocious lion the best approach is to pump him full of steroids and feed him raw meat. A more practical approach is to stick on a lion wig and see if he gets instantly transformed into the king of the jungle in this way.

The Cat Fountain

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

You don’t want your faithful feline buddy to suffer the indignity of having to sip out of a common plate, do you? With this convenient, decorative cat fountain he can quench his thirst while appearing to be elegant and refined.

The Cat Glass

Stunning Gifts for Cat Lovers

Of course, the best cat gifts aren’t just for our whiskered friends to use. As cat owners we also demand gifts that make us look as though we are cats, even if it is just for a fleeting second while supping a glass of warm milk. This glass is pretty cute.

The Cat Hanger

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

You knew that some weird and slightly scary cat gifts were on their way, didn’t you? Well, the wait is now over, as you can see from this horrendously bizarre cat clothes hanger. To be fair, the shirt is probably even worse than the hanger.

The Giant Play Area

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

What genius came up with the idea of play areas for cats in the first place? Did they think that the little feline devils were bored sitting about all day? Sitting about all day is what they love most of all. If I put my feckless puss onto this thing he would just look for the most comfortable place to lie down all day.

The Cat Lover’s Clothes

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

So, you love cats and you want to let the whole world to know about it. The first option to consider is that of pushing a shopping trolley filled with dozens of mangy moggies around busy pedestrian shopping areas. If that doesn’t appeal to you for some reason then the next best thing to do is to wear some cat lover clothing like this.

The Cat Plane

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

I’m not going to even attempt to lie to you by claiming to know what this car gift is. Sure, it’s a plane and –look! – there’s a cat in it. I guess that what I want to say is that I haven’t got the faintest idea why you would treat your favourite feline flier to this treat. Is it a bed or somewhere comfortable for him to pass some quality leisure time?

More Cat Wigs

Stunning Gifts for Cat Lovers

Isn’t it a shame that cats often have to go through their lives with exactly the same hairstyle? For example, you very rarely, if ever, see a moggy with a perm or dreadlocks. The beauty of these cat wigs is that they make a perfect gift for the discerning cat that wants a different look but isn’t too keen on spending hours in a beauty salon.

The Cat Mug

Stunning Gifts Every Cat Lover Wants to Have

If you want something more traditional and less freaky then what about a mug as a cat gift? This one would look great with some hot chocolate and a dollop of cream in it. As would just about anything, to be honest.
