Oddly Specific – While waiting in line at the Post Office (had to run some errands), I played around with my cell phone’s camera but there wasn’t anything of real interest to shoot. To keep myself occupied during the wait, I started taking pictures of different signs I saw, with the No Smoking sign doing a special appearance in my shoot. Then I started thinking about the variation of No Smoking signs in all the different places I visited in my lifetime…. I think this could be a great idea for a website, don’t you? If you find interest in signs, especially the ones that mean well but are poorly executed, be sure to visit Oddly Specific. It’s a “strangely particular website about peculiarly exacting signs.” The best part about Oddly Specific is that their collection of signs from all over the world is absolutely hilarious. Caution: a wave of humor is just around the corner….
