There is not going to be any redemption here, thanks to this handy, helpful sign. A lot of people are happy to be aware of the fact that they are right near a state prison, even if they are not happy to BE right near a state prison.
Roll up the windows, kids, and do not make eye contact. Also, make sure not to pick up any people that have their thumbs hanging out as they are standing by the side of the road. Maybe prisons should go back to the black-and-white striped jumpsuits, just so there is no confusion.
All for the Hive
Bees are an incredibly important part of our ecosystem, and they should be encouraged. They get a bad rap thanks to the whole stinging business, but here's something you might not know – if a bee has stung you, it's just resigned itself to death.
A bee's stinger is connected to a number of important organs inside its body, so if the stinger is left inside you, it will result in the bee's demise. This is a last-ditch effort and the most powerful weapon for defending the hive. Hence the sign – the bee isn't going down without a fight.
She Is All of Us
This lady encountered possibly one of the rarest signs in the world – beware of falling deer. The best part is it isn't even “watch out for live moving deers that are above you.” No, this sign is a warning that if you're unlucky and you aren't paying attention you might get hit by half-eaten bits of deer carcasses.
The woman in the picture has the correct face. Worry, confusion, surprise, and exasperation at what she suddenly has to deal with. It's pretty much the same face that anybody would have on their face when they first see this sign.
Quick, Get In!
This sign is warning drivers that hitchhikers might be inmates that have escaped from prison, but the wording is a bit confusing. If you didn't think it through, you might think that hitchhikers are people that are trying to get away from inmates – they are escaping FROM inmates.
Hopefully, this hasn't caused any confusion. We also hope that the people in charge of this sign noticed the mistake and issued a new version that was better worded. Sorry escapees, you're going to have to hoof it if you want to fully complete your escape plan and get to safety.
Ever Wonder Why They're Called Nightmares?
While it is often thought a nightmare has to do with a horse in its original etymology, it's actually from the Old English word "mare," a demon that torments with frightening dreams. The horse in this picture, however, is absolutely a nightmare – just look at that thing.
It looks like it's going to be in your bedroom when you wake up in the middle of the night. The sign doesn't help, either – it kind of looks like that “may” should be a “will.” The end should read “and the horse will enjoy it.” Shoo horse! Let me sleep!
