Theme Day: Funny Signs

There may be a part of Pasadena I haven't scoured for funny signs, but I don't know where it is. I had to go to Valley Village to find this one (thanks for the tip, Lisa!).

Sometimes I want to tell people Los Angeles isn't as weird as folks say it is. Then I see something like this and I think, yes, yes it is.

If you don't think this sign is funny, click on it to enlarge it and check again. And if you still don't think it's funny, I recommend a super-size bag of Doritos.

There are now 1234 City Daily Photo blogs around the world, many of which are participating in today's theme. Click here to view thumbnails for the participants and discover a new city!

This is hilarious. (Or is it HIGH-larious? Sorry, couldn't resist.) I'm sharing the link to your post on my Facebook. Great find :)

Shell Sherree said...

Hahaha ~ I love the inclusion of "Actual Doctor" on the photo. I think I'd like mine to look like Hugh Jackman.

Louis la Vache said...

Indeed HIGH-larious if they think we'd ACTUALly believe them!

Bill said...

Now we know. A real doctor advises us to smoke a joint. I need to have a word with mine.

Kate said...

Don't know which is the enticement...the actual doctor or the marijuana.

Nathalie said...

The photo and your words are equally funny! What a find!

jb said...

This is the way the doctor looks AFTER the joint. (She really loks like Pyliss Diller....)

jb said...

Or PHyliss Diller, even...

B SQUARED said...

Not like any doctor I've ever seen. She's "smokin'" hot.

Mister Earl said...

"I'm not a doctor, but I play one on a billboard."

Mister Earl said...

I keep confusing the Med School Yearbook for a Victoria's Secret Catalogue!

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, everyone. I was beginning to think I'd have to skip this theme day. Thank goodness for the San Fernando Valley. Evelyn, I'm honored that you're sharing my link.

Shell, now you've got me wondering who I want my doctor to look like.

Louis, I know. Imagine the disappointment!

Welcome, Bill. Let us know what you find out.

Kate, I don't think they care, as long as you pay!

Merci, Nathalie, and merci to my friend who found it for me.

Hee hee, JB. Or Pill-is, maybe.

Good one, B-Squared.

Keep 'em coming, Mister Earl. Stop by again if you have more.

Vanda said...

LA is weird, we're just used to it. I'd be more willing to believe she was an "actual" doctor if she was wearing a bikini.

mark said...

I think I have just found myself a new doctor. I wonder if she makes house calls. Hey Doc! What's in the black bag?

Bellis said...

This gets even better if you go to the website on the billboard. Take a look at the Office Photos.

Eleonora said...

This is hysterical! The website is a gem too. 5+ years of experience, wow! And certified from an actual doctor (that looks mysteriously like Ashwarya Rai, the famous Indian film star)

Virginia said...

See, your sign is much better than the hemorrhoid clinic I pilfered from LA! Guess they had to weed out a lot of actual doctors before they found this babe! Whoohooo. And she's got 5 years experience. She could put Viagra out of business.

Greg Sweet said...

I guess you get the card from the actual doctor, then get the actual marijuana from the guy in the red cap.

Lois said...

Very funny! I wonder where she went to medical school.

Pascal Jim said...

Notice all the Weed in the yard under the sign?

Petrea Burchard said...

I thought about cutting the guy out of the picture. It's not really fair to him. Hopefully he'll never see it!

Maybe she prescribes Viagra, too. No telling what she can do with her 5+ years' experience and those attractive examining rooms. And her bikini.

Clifford Beshers said...

I thought you must have asked the guy to pose; he is such an integral part of the sales pitch. Now, if you could have just captured a bit of plant peeking out from behind that fence...

Latino Heritage said...

So much to play with...In addition to her loveliness, Actual Doctor, M.D., I love the lack of attention to placement. Big old gap in the corner, perhaps the creative team, started work after visiting her office.

Clifford Beshers said...

Placement is right. Who are the poor souls who have this in their front yard? I assume that's a row of fluorescent lights at the top? All night long... I'd need some weed at that point for sure.

Jilly said...

This is hysterical! And so are your words...!

Kat said...

Actual doctor? lol! I actually like the "5+ years." That's the level of experience you are looking for in your "doctor."

Buck said...

Like, actually awesome!

Petrea said...

These folks live next to the parking lot of a fast food place. Insult, meet injury.

Lori Lynn said...

I clicked on the site -
it says

“Life can be filled with difficult choices.
Choosing your doctor should not be one of them.”

Oy.

Mister Earl said...

No, choosing your actual doctor should not be one of life's difficult choices, and somehow I think it just got a hell of a lot easier!

WV: botil. I wonder if my new actual doctor could give me a shot of botil to get rid of these wrinkles.

Ms M said...

This is great! I like the "actual doctor" caption under the babe's face. And the "5+ years" of experience. I wonder if the people who created this sign had a few tokes, and a few bags of Doritos....

Amy said...

Well I'm sure glad to know she's an actual doctor, that makes me feel better. I think she's a highly photoshop'ed doctor. Just sayin.'

Great find!

Last comment of the day(?): You don't need a Turkish towel to dispense analgesics ...


wv: glysticy! Really!
