We have a local law that prohibits the use of profanity at our Oceanfront resort area. This is one of the signs...

Okay... I can hear all of you laughing. You can get up off the floor now. It's real.

Indeed!...and many other people too...lol. Profanity isn't good of course but to prohibit it is going a bit too far IMO.

And btw SATX, that was an interesting sign on the previous page about Stinson airport. I didn't know it had such an interesting history.

LOL... that's our local government at work. I only said it was real. I didn't say it worked.

It's definitely got history Dave. I've grown up around it. It's only a 1/4 mile if that from my home. Like 2 blocks away. Lindbergh and Earhart have flown there. Started out as Windburn field (I think first named for a reporter that died in a crash) if I recall correctly. It's the 2nd longest continuously running airport in the nation.

Yeah, I think the sign has had times of poor upkeep over the years. My shot was taken from up at the Griffith Observatory.

Sadly, I don't have photo proof, but one of the funniest signs I've encountered was on the side of a fairly rural road in Northern California. It was crudely hand-painted on scrap wood and posted at the end of a driveway outside a farmhouse. It said, "No Sex Here!" My husband and I used to laugh hysterically every time we drove by.
