Here is a thread in another forum that is nothing but odd photos from India. Mostly signs, most of which are laugh-out-loud funny.

These are funny photos but India is also where some of the most horrific photos I've ever seen come from. Those are the photos of rotten human corpses floating in the river and lying along river banks as part of their tradition of funeral. They treat the rivers extremely sacred, so laying the dead ones floating in the rivers is regarded as something divine and religious. The scariest part is the living people are still using the water from the same rivers and going on about their daily lives around these rotten corpses like they are so used to the scene
