Now Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Graffiti and defacing signs is illegal, so, kids, don’t try this at home.  That being said, today’s site shows us just how creative a mind can be.  You know how you can look at a cloud and make it out to look like an object?  These creative folks look at signs we see every day and turn them into something that makes you think, “Ha!  I never thought of that!”  WARNING:  Some pictures on this site are not rated G.  Still, the majority of them are safe to view.  All my examples are definitely G-rated.

These are actual signs, not Photoshopped. 

Some of these are obviously well-thought out, and the artist has gone to a lot of trouble to create the “hack.”  Such as this one, titled “The Origin of Religion.”  Some are warning signs that when read, could definitely have another meaning, (and this is when I think, “Why didn’t I think of that?”).  Can’t go wrong with Googly Eyes for a laugh!

Then, of course, there is the age-old, standard spray paint.  But, seriously, think of how long this took to make!  Not to mention just coming up with the idea! 

Or, just use a marker when you have a spur-of-the-moment idea.  How many of us have seen this sign, and never thought twice about it?  I’m guessing that the next time you’ll see it, you’ll think of this.  (Snakes.  Why did it have to be snakes?)

And, finally, just a piece of paper can change your viewpoint, and give you a giggle.   This one reminded me of when I was in college, living in the dorm.  We had two elevators.  Someone made signs and taped one above each.  “Ella” and “Darth.”  Made me smile every day.

So, sign up now, to get a laugh or two each day.  (Okay, that pun needed work.  A LOT of work.)
