There is truly nothing like a summer road trip with your main squeeze, girl gang or family. A little trip down the scenic route is a great way to break up the monotony of the eat/sleep/repeat cycle. Of course, you'll have to pass the time or succumb to highway hypnosis, which can be something of a challenge.

These road signs seem designed to keep you holding your sides instead of holding your head up.

This is the physical manifestation of a brain fart.

We get what they're trying to do, but doesn't this sort of defeat the purpose of keeping people focused on the road?

Wrong way

Imagine what it must be like to get a sick burn from an insentient piece of metal.

Wait...

Maybe U-turns are still OK?

Is there any other kind?

This road trip just got a whole lot more interesting.

Gotta love that Massachusetts humor...

Oh...we get it!

Don't get excited. That's just the name of an unincorporated area of Newfoundland. We checked.

We hear it's lovely in Middelfart this time of year. You just have to breathe through your nose.

A good rule of thumb

Seriously. Your friends will just have to wait with bated breath to find out which hilarious Minion-themed meme you'll share next.

We bet Shitterton is awesome, and they only named it that to keep transplants out. Kinda like the whole Iceland/Greenland thing.

Never gets old

When you live on the internet like we do, every generic sign-based pedestrian has a bitchin' claw like this one.

Indeed

And you thought roundabouts were total nightmares.

It's fun to imagine how many times they had to rebuild the bridge before they shelled out for the sign.

#19/23:

That's dark, man

We can't decide if this sign-poster was making a statement about the people who treat residential streets like the autobahn, if this is just earnest or which is worse.

#20/23:

Giving directions must be a nightmare

Giving directions must be a nightmare

Seriously. "Oh yeah, you just want to go to the end of the street and turn onto That Way. If you turn This Way you'll never get there."

#21/23:

Thanks?

Thanks?

This sign has probably saved the sanity of countless parents over the years.

#22/23:

One-oh-what-now?

One-oh-what-now?

Don't judge! Ordinal numbers are hard

#23/23:

Unfortunate, but hilarious.

If this isn't the way to Shitterton, then there's absolutely no justice in the world.
