I saw a 'funny' sign in Roseburg, OR on the cul-de-sac where my parents live. The building next to the street has changed hands many times and has housed several different businesses. One interesting business was a funeral home. Not that a funeral home is 'funny', but the "Dead End"

Finishing with this ditty from Jeremy in NY:
A while ago, I was sitting in our car in the Wal*Mart parking lot waiting for my wife to finish her shopping. I looked up, saw a sign, and immediately created a joke. I guess it's funny. Here goes. Thanks for listening...
Due to budget constraints, the Board of the Daily Planet advised Perry White that he had to let one of his star reporters go. He was really overwhelmed about the magnitude of the decision. "Who should go, Clark or Lois?" He actually did some praying, which he hadn't done for a long time. He asked, "Please. Show me a sign." That afternoon he was doing some shopping at Wal*Mart, and when he went to his car he suddenly saw the answer.
The next day he called Clark and Lois into the office and said, "I'm sorry, Lois, but you have to go." After Lois collected her things and left, Clark took Perry aside and asked, "Chief - how did you know which one of us should go?" Perry said, "Well, that turned out to be easier than I thought. While I was parking at Wal*Mart, I looked up and there was the sign: FIRE LANE."
