Puzzling Signs

Its Thursday. That means it is time to share our sign shots. This week I have a couple that made me scratch my head in wonder.

Passed this horse trailer on the highway a few weeks ago. Made no sense until I googled the phrase. Now I may understand the meaning but still have to question why anyone would want to paint it on their trailer.

Found this sign hanging over the side door of a coffee shop in Santa Fe, NM. That was three years ago and I still can't get my head around the name. Why would someone choose this for their business?

I am linking this post to Signs, Signs hosted by Lesley of Southern Ontario, discovered . To check out what interesting signs others have posted this week click here.


  1. I had to google it, too... and I still don't get it.
    but I do get the coffee!

  2. I think I would have stuck with K.I.S.S. COFFEE!

  3. HI Rita -- I still haven't looked up the meaning of either of those signs (I looked this morning and was going to do that before I commented).. interesting signs anyway...

    Also (on your other blog) I loved the red dirt picture. I used to have a T-Shirt that color that said "Alabama Dirt Shirt"! I was said when it wore out.

  4. Apparently in a business context it means we don't deal in inferior merchandise. So they have good horses--no pigs.

  5. Yes. It is absolutely K.I.S.S Coffee. These signs are pretty weird. They'd leave you puzzled. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day! house painting

  6. Hahaha! Well, I have yet to google 'We don't rent pigs', but the coffee sign is priceless; it's as if the owner had asked someone to translate something he'd written for his sign into English, and they'd written back and said 'Keep it simple, stupid; 'Coffee'!'


  7. I don't get them, but they are both very funny!

  8. Hi Rita Sweetie...
    I see you haven't posted for awhile. I am so hoping you two are okay. You are usually on top of things. Love this signs post. I wouldn't have gotten the one about the pigs either. Thank you Katney for sharing with us this evening.

    I hope you will stop by. This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

    Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

  9. Long time no see! Is everything okay?


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
