If you’re on your way to a new place you haven’t explored before, you’d hope there might be a useful sign somewhere to help you locate it.
But sometimes, road and place signs aren’t all that helpul – and in some cases, they can leave you with more questions than answers.
People on various social media platforms from all around the world have shared signs they have seen that caused utter bewilderment.
The snaps have been collected into a gallery by Cheezburger – and they’re bound to leave everyone else just as confused.
One such sign in the US, at a farm where you can milk cows, left visitors baffled when it advertised ‘two people’ for the bargain price of $5 – but made it look like it was people, not cows, being milked.
