Is it just me or does it seem like the wheelchair should be facing the other way?

Definitely the wheelchair should be facing the other way and the occupant in a full-on "get me the hell outta here" racing stance - wheelin' like mad!

That wheelchair picture would be correct if somebody hadn't air brushed out his skewer full of marshmallows.

What is it even trying to say? Sheesh!

This reminded me of your unattended children sign and this fun modified signs thread.

So many opportunities for humor!

Maybe the guy in front of the guy in the wheelchair just ate something spicy...and it's not agreeing with him.

This is a sign for a shelter area for people who cannot use the stairs when the elevators are out during a fire.

Now it has me wondering why all of the rooms aren't fireproof safe rooms.

It is a central area where the firefighters would go look first. The building is concrete, so I don't think it would burn much.

Our government post office at its finest! I took this photo earlier this afternoon at one of the post offices in Missoula.

I agree completely, Jocelyn, Facebook is so so wrong.
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
