TechRepublic's camera phone challenge: Funny signs

We challenged the TechRepublic community to submit their camera phone photos of funny and/or interesting signs.

The winning photo was taken by TR member jessefenn with a Samsung Intercept. He said, "I found a place in downtown Wabeno, WI, that does both computer repair and barbershop under the same roof! Too bad that this town is dead six months of the year, or I open shop up there."

Is it fair that the TR editor who ran the contest is one of the winners?

I saw loads in Hong Kong. I have photos too... On a bus: "Beware of your hands" In a park: "Defectation of animals is forbidden" In a urinal: "Enjoy your drink"

LOL, Hmm seems like an opportunity for a prankster to call every few minutes saying they seem to have misplaced their Ice Cube... Obviously this most likely is the result of a bad Translation along the line and the last item is most likely not Ice Cube in Chinese.. BTW, what is the second Cotton item supposed to be? Cotton Bu???

But it's not from a camera phone. I wonder, is Leno still doing 'Headlines'? These are fun. Thanks. :D

Best sign I ever saw was in Austin, TX in front of a Holiday Inn. It read "Texans ride tall in the saddle until the blister pops!"

You sure do get around - I'm jealous. However, what with all the TSA groping & such, maybe not.....I particularly enjoyed your picture taken in Mineta International Airport, since I live in San Jose, CA (actually Willow Glen).
