Strange road signs: Don't panic, the paradise you desire is just two miles away

Apr 22, 2014

Ride the roads of America, or anywhere else, for that matter, and you'll eventually see some strange stuff along the way. Including the road signs themselves. Like the one above, for example. I'd always thought desire came before paradise, actually, and panic was another route entirely, but these signs set me straight.

Over the years, I've snapped photos of a few unintentionally humorous road signs. Here are a few of my favorites. Got some of your own? Be sure to share them in the comments section below.

Funny, Wall Street always looks so different in the movies.

Vote for the full slate, including Swindler for Auditor. I don't know about that James Dean guy, though.

I have to wonder what the minister is doing on Route 666.

I'm guessing the mechanics are not members of the local literary society in their spare time.
