These are the best signs!! I'm partial to the organic orgasmic sign. :)

Sharon T said...

Those are great! I love the "no trumpets or trumpeting?" sign. That is oddly specific! And also the I ___Paris. Is that a crab? An alien? At any rate, I really enjoyed seeing them.

i don't think we yanks really knew that there was such a word as hamburgueseria linked to our national dish!

the piggy sign was good too! "je suis delicieux...."

Fabulous. You may want to block this but one of my all time favorites is a restaurant sign in Toulouse - Le Hardi Coq. You can google it with images.

I LOVE these!

Ann said...

Hilarious! Thank you for the giggle. These are all very funny, but the dancing pig was my favorite. He's laughing all the way to the abbatoir!

Sooo Funny!! Loved them all, but especially the no trumpet, what a place to live!

Chez Loulou said...

I love that one too! It was taken in Mougins.

You're welcome and thanks for stopping by.

Isn't that 'no trumpet' sign funny? I took that in Romania a couple of years ago.

Chez Loulou said...

One of the best names of a restaurant, ever! :)

It is a Space Invader. Apparently there's an artist in Paris who has left little Space Invader mosaics all over the city.

That sign, taken in Spain, was so incongruous! My friends thought I was crazy for taking it, but I just couldn't resist.

That is hilarious! Must look it up.

Me too!
Our friends gave us one of those little signs once that says "Nice Dog, Crazy Owner." :)


I love that pig too! It is still there, on our local butcher's window. He has now added a lamb as well. lol

I think that is a great sign too!

Nice post ! Some signs are really funny.

And to clarify some puzzled readers - the "no trumpet" actually means "no honking", it's usually around hospitals or health facilities.

I love that one too. It makes me smile every time I see it!

Are you sure? I thought it was a ban on people playing live music in the square...
