I saw some funny signs in another post. Here are some signs in a very rural area near me. These properties just happen to be next to each other where the gravel road turns to red dirt.

I don't have a picture, but on this one guys land he had a great posted sign. It was great because he had a 10 foot waterfall on his property and you were allowed to see it...sort of...

"Welcome, but if you post your land, stay the hell off mine".

Yep, works for me since I share too. (Just not during deer season as there are too many stupid hunters today).

Official signs ( like NortHBeachPerson posted) are unique and cute.

Home made signs made by individuals usually show the low intelligence of the person ( IMHO)

I recall one huge sign along a State hwy next to a run down ,junky, farm that proclaimed his wife got everything in a divorce.

( she probably didn't get much, even if it was " everything")

That sign was close to State Hwy 15 in central Minnesota.

Another joke is those home made signs where people try to out do each other with tough talk about trespassing.

Many of those " tough talking" signs don't tell me a mean man lives there, just an ignorant man.

Me too. The funny thing was my Mom made my dad put some up around their house. It was really funny because they were foster parents and took in retarded children.
