You're Not a Train

The other night as I was perusing my Twitter feed, I stumbled upon this post:


I have not laughed that hard in a long time. Too long.

So, I'm sharing.

I don't know if you'll find this as funny as I did. But sometimes something just strikes you, you know? And if you want more laughs, take a look at all the replies. They go from the obvious (pointing out that there are plenty of people who can't read the sign who aren't trains) to the ridiculous.

This is now the wallpaper on my phone.

Did you find this funny? (I doubt you found it as funny as I did.) When was the last time you had a really great laugh? Do you have any good jokes you can share?

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

  1. I think it's pretty funny. Of course, I yell "you're not a vegetable" at Duke pretty much all summer when I catch him in the garden. Funny signs probably at least catch people's attention more than the usual signs.

    1. I would hope so. But, people ignore signs, so...

  2. It's amusing and therefore probably more effective

  3. It's funny. Too many people ignore signs. Sadly they may also be the ones that get into losing battles.

    1. Yeah, it's usually the ones that need the signs the most that completely ignore them.

  4. I like it, if something is funny and interesting people are more likely to take notice of it.

  5. Funny sign, and I retweeted, but I wonder just how effective it is. I do wonder, because people have no idea how tragic a walk on the tracks can become (there was one such incident in our town several years ago). Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Probably not any more than any other sign they might post. Points for a sense of humor.

  6. I think it's funny, and I have a joke for you.

    What did the doe say when she came out of the woods?

  11. Catching up here....this is funny but I wonder how many kids went on the tracks and claimed they were not trains. The jokes I know can’t be repeated here:)

    1. There are so many ways to logic the joke out. At the time, I thought it was hysterical.

  12. I wonder how many people laugh out loud when they read it. I hope a lot of happy people get on that train.
