Am I the only one I know who sees poorly worded signs and gets a little grin out of 'em? For example, up at the college, there's a room in the Technology Building that has a bunch of fancy expensive equipment in it. By the time I get there for my evening class, that room is closed and locked. And on the outside of the door is a sign that says, "This Room Is Alarmed!!!"
And every time I see it all I can think is, "What scared it?"
I dunno, guess I'm just weird like that. :)

At a local ethnic resturant they have chicken nuggets listed as "chicken nuts". I always have to laugh when I see that.

How about when somebody interchanges the words "their" and "there"?

And I chuckle at the handwritten store signs that say "Sell Today" instead of "Sale Today". Whereas Sale is a noun, and therefore a description of an event, Sell is a verb and therefore the description of the activity. They can Sell the shirt to me while I am shopping at their Sale.

Then there's the posessive apostrophe that people stick in plural words. "All Shirt's on Sell" when their shirts are on sale.

...yeah, I'm weird. (not wierd, whatever that is supposed to be... ;-) )

I see the humor in those too, but it drives me crazy if they misspell anything on a sign.

At the entrance to the motor pool shop at an Army base I worked at there was a sign on the door "Deaf Person in Shop" right below another one "Sound Horn on Entering"
