    Sign at one local barn:

    "Don't know if I found a rope or lost a horse."


    Sign at our local tax assessor's office from all places, scary:

    "I've lost my mind.
    I have gone looking for it.
    If it comes back before I find it,
    Please tell it to wait for me."

    My personal fave for property signs:

    Trespassers will be shot...
    Survivors will be shot again!

    And the the barn:

    If you're smoking, you better be on fire!

    My equine vet had one in his clinic that I loved. It said, "I'd rather answer a stupid question than fix a stupid mistake."

    My neighbor had a sign on his gates:

    "Tresspassers will be shot. Survivors will be prosecuted."

    Always liked that one.
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    Signs in a local (somewhat redneck-ish) bar:

    Please be kind to your bartender, even a toilet seat can only handle one a**hole at a time.

    This isn't Burger King. You don't get it your way. You get our way or you don't get the damn thing.

    Each of these signs are positioned on either side of a neon sign that is a hand flipping the bird. It's my favorite place for a cold beer after a hot day. It's also the bar that gained a little notoriety a few years back when Civil Rights groups went after them for placing a sign in the window that said "For service speak English". The bar owner has a sign in the window that he changes weekly, usually something politically-motivated to offend the senses of liberals (he's a hard-core conservative). When the bull hockey hit the fan over the speak English sign he left it up for the duration of the court cases (yes, charges were filed against him). Was quite the uproar in the small community. It's an interesting place to grab a beer and people-watch.
