Too bad Bill Engvall isn't a member here. I'm sure he's got a big library of 'signs'..

oh drat, I forgot about this. Took a pic for it too but it wasn't any good. And there's a few signs around the place that are worthy of a photo.
Will try and remember tomorrow - getting another pic is easier than finding the ones I took before.

I had a good one that I took a few months ago in a convenience store in Plantersville, TX, but my phone died Friday and I lost a bunch of pictures. It was taped to the door to the women's restroom and said:

Alan - one can take a very ordinary sign and take a perfect photo. It's not all about what the sign necessarily says ;-) . Here are some examples -
