Unusual Signs
Managed By: Icon Here Spell Checkers.
Description:
The idea of this category is to find and mark incorrect or confusing official signs. They can be printed or pictorial signs that have corrupted the English or any other language (please include English translation and explanation) or are just plain confusing. These would also include funny or misdirected road or directional signs. Upside down is also accepted if it is clearly a permanent orientation and not the temporary influence of attachment failure or storm damage.

Incorrect punctuation is often the bane of Grammar Police. Especially egregious is the incorrect use of "possessive s" where just adding the letter "s" would be the proper plural form. This restaurant takes it to a new level with a "quotation s."
