Hey guys, here are a couple of sign boards that seemed funny enough to get my attention.

Have you seen a curry leave that will charge?

This one is not exactly funny, but kind of serves two purposes. Guess you can get what I mean by reading the message and the gate.

That signboard made a lot of sense, asking people not to go beyond the fence. Spotted at Kamat in en-route krishnagiri.

@IronH4WK - Yup, you guessed it right.

It was kind of easy though since it's a gate :P

Top 10 road safety signs on the Ladakh route:
(my compilation)

10. Safety on road, safe tea at home

9. This is highway, not runway

8. Short cut can cut short your life

7. If married, divorce speed

6. Driving after whisky is risky

5. Better be Mr late than late Mr

4. It is not a rally, enjoy the valley

3. Be gentle on my curves

2. Don't gossip, let him drive


and the best one...


1. I love you but not so fast !!!!!

Saw these two signs near Andheri Stn, maybe warning and not requesting the strangers,non members or non residents to sit on the benches provided. Instead I found some one SLEEPING near that warning.

Good one. Qualifies for a Puneri Patya, albeit in Hindi

This is quite an old real estate broking agency from Australia. But even I was wondering, how would their employees be introducing their place of work??
