Laughter is to Pinoys what the ocean is to fishes. Just think: Even poverty has not stopped most every Juan from getting a good laughing moment. Straddling the whole barkada along.
Yet, these signs below are something else. They’ve put funny in another level. By writing it for everyone to see. The intentions of the authors of these signages maybe straight-forward. True. But it is the juxtaposition of words and the over-all language that has made it even more amusing. But the best part of it is these signs were may never have been intended to be laughable. They just end up that way.
Gentlemen, another feast. Ten of the most quintessentially-funny signs posted for public consumption:
#10: VAGINA REPAIR ANYONE?
Yeah, why not? If appliances like your everyday hot iron need repairs due to constant use, why not the most precious body part. But I just wonder if the people operating this business are OB-Gyne’s. From the looks of the sign, maybe not.
#9: UNDIES PLEASE
Perhaps there are a string of pedophiles lurking about and these sign just want to protect those unassuming graders. Who knows? Or maybe this town has been stricken by some sort of scabies that attack the private parts of young girls.
#8: ONLOOKERS PLEASE COME
Yes, while many would not want to be seen doing their personal business of getting some sense of comfort, this one encourages people to do it only when people are around. Seems the sign-maker is employing a reverse psychology of sorts. Right? See for yourself.
#7: HUSBAND DAY CARE CENTER
Wow! Not only do you get a BABY DAY CARE, you got something for the husbands. Must be for the good of the family. Is this a DSWD project. On the contrary, this is purely business veiled in providing a service. Dontcha think?
#6: FORTUNE-TELLER AT HIS BEST
You should congratulate Mang Lando. He’s got answers for seemingly all sorts of lost problems, from your kitty to your money. And the best thing is he’s got all those things put in a nice pricelist. Good for you if you are a high school student and you’d have huge discounts.
#5: TIMELY JEEP WARNING
Funny as it is, this sign has got loads and loads of warning in it. So all those pretty teenage girls who just found their entry to the land of the adult, careful, careful. A jolt of drink could spell your doom.
#4: DO IT SOMEWHERE ELSE, PLEASE
I like this sign. It does not attack the reader or would-be comfort-seeker. Rather it just brings our attention to the state of the place in particular and propose a plea. Neat!
#3: THE VOICE JUDGES, READY?
Yes, don’t waste the water. Finish your business first before you sing your songs. That way, you save the liquid and secondly, you preserve the peace of the neighborhood. Wise sign, don’t you think?
Very nicely done sign. Except for the teeny-weeny tiny bit of a fact. That it contains a wrong grammar that made the whole thing leaning towards the funny. A simple misplaced S opens your mouth to a good laugh. Yes, please, that’s what’s friends are’s for’s. Right?
#1: UNLI SERVICE
Entrepreneurs are masters of sales pitch. And this one has given us a strong lesson, one of street sales, in business. Why not innovate the usual way of selling and offer a compelling service in return. Just like the one below. Only thing is I wonder if this one will produce the profits. Ka-Ching!
