    Although I love skateboarding, I can’t believe this made it to the homepage of digg. This is a horrible collection of unusual signs.

    Great post. My friends and I used to spray paint the signs black when we saw them.. Another way of claiming ignorance I suppose. Luckily here in Tokyo, skateboarding isnt so popular so I rarely come across signs or security guards attempting to stop me. The city of Shinagawa is the one exception to this – but theyre all in Japanese, so I can still claim ignorance as a stupid foreigner.

    Your grammar sucks and the signs aren’t even that weird. “Hey, this one’s missing a letter! This one’s got arrows under it!” Nothing ironic or funny about these at all. Totally lame.

    Check it out, you even left in a second copy of the first caption by mistake! Also, in a lot of European countries a red circle means “no” even without a red slash, so no, it’s not ambiguous unless you’re an American and fairly dumb.

    Your right these are some pretty cool no skateboarding signs.

    Love it! Why are there so many long and excessive no skateboarding signs? As if skateboarders are gonna listen anyway.

    These were alright. I like the hopscotch one and the know skateboarding one. Other than that they just looked like normal signs.

    Honestly, these are the best or most unusual you could find? A few signs with letters missing and some others that are just…well…signs?

    Perhaps you should give up blogging and go back to working in the supermarket. I don’t think journalism is your forte.

    someone should make a book. the stenciled skater holding the rollerskates is one i definitely have not seen. i also like when they put the slash through the skater doing something really cool, as if to say.. “just don’t get all stylee and be doing any tricks around here.”
