Sign posts and notice boards remain one of the easiest means by which individuals, organisations or even countries relay vital information to the general public – they often act as the ”eye” that leads the general public. Life without traditional sign posts such as those inscribed on washroom doors indicating the sexes could be embarrassing and unfriendly sometimes. Could you imagine driving down the highway without any traffic lights or signs?

Aside from their practical benefits, commercial sign posts and posters have also become a true source of humor from mini markets to public pubs and large shopping malls, when you consider the funny but serious messages they convey. Here is a list of some outstanding sign posts from residents of various African countries.
