Some signs that I have run across and some that I was told about
during a bar session.

Big O Tire Store: "Blow Out Sale, Time to re-tire!"
Towing yard: "We don't charge an arm & a leg, we want tows!"
Auto repair shop: "May we have the next dents?"
Radiator shop: "Best place in town to take a leak!"
Place of worship: "Seven days without God makes one WEAK!"
Restaurant: "Don't stand there and be hungry come inside and get fed up!"
Chinese Restaurant: "The English here is not good, but the food is!"
Salty Frog: "No working during drinking hours!"
Vets office: "All unattended children will be issued a free kitten!"
Devious Deceptions
"Gadol Elohai!"
L'Chaim!

These two are bona fide signs I saw with my own eyes:

A butcher's shop in upstate New York:
"You Can't Beat Our Meat."

And a waste disposal company in the Punjab, India:
"You Poop, We Scoop."

Last week, I was so intrigued by the following sign on the inside door of an outdoor toilet, that I took a picture of it while taking advantage of the toilet:

When people refer to toilets as "johns" it really makes me flush.

I don't know if it's still in business, but there used to an ambulance company in central Massachusetts named "Poor Ambulance Service." The owner's name was Peter Poor. Can you imagine that on the side of an ambulance?

Fluke Corporation has been making electronic measurement equipment for decades. IIRC the corporation was founded by a Mr. J.M. Fluke.

If it's quality, you know it's a Fluke.

There's a bar in Providence that has a sign in the window;

"If you're driving your husband to drink,
drive him here!"
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

So where did you get your driver's license? By going to a driving school called "Funny Drive", of course!

My wife and I got our marriage license after standing in the line up for "fishing, hunting and marriage licenses". Seems about right.

Lets not forget all the various companies that name themselves "Flick" just to be able to make a potentially inappropriate sign (image search will show several) "Flick Hair Cutting" was the fist business you saw driving into my college town. You could see it for over a mile on the way in. Up close it obviously said "Flick." From a mile out it seemed like it said something else though.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

According to my dad, there was a restaurant in Los Angeles many, many years ago that advertised Warm Beer and Lousy Food. Apparently their advert was wrong.

On a much smaller scale, at a Chinese restaurant I once opened a fortune cookie which read: "The difference between love and hate? One tastes like rubber."
