Pubs, like most shops, need to attract customers. One way for them to do that is to put up signs right outside their establishments. While some pubs use direct and serious ads, some chose to use humor. Most of the time, humorous ads work better.
To prove the point, here are 40 seriously funny pub signs that actually work.
1. A warning
Don’t take your kids to this pub unless you’re absolutely sure that you won’t get drunk or distracted. You wouldn’t want to lose your kids for a few bottles of beer, right?
2. Not getting drunk at lunch?
This is an absolute hit for people who find their workplace dreadful. Just thinking about going to work and being able to enjoy a few bottles of beer at lunch can make things instantly better.
3. One soup, please.
I’m not sure what ingredients they use but I bet that soup tastes delightfully bitter. You’ll feel so much better after eating it.
4. Couldn’t be more true
If you’re constipated, you literally won’t be able to do that. Be that 1 out of 10 when you go to this pub.
5. That one guy
People say that it’s true. There’s really one guy they don’t let into this pub. I wonder what he did to deserve that.
6. The best kind of advertising
Don’t deny it. I’m pretty sure you almost fell for it.
7. A solution for wives
If you’re a shopaholic, you’d find this pub really helpful in keeping your partner busy while you’re visiting your favorite shops. Just make sure that you have extra cash to pay for the bottles of beer.
8. Not-so-difficult choice
Whatever your answer is, the result is the same. Whether or not things are ok, you should get yourself something to drink.
9. Not those crabs
As much as possible, stay away from this pub. It’s the only way you can stay away from their local crabs.
10. Freebies for kids
This might sound fun for kids. For parents, it feels more like a disaster. If you don’t want your kids to wreck your home, don’t bring them to this pub.
11. At your own risk
You shouldn’t drink if you’ll be running a marathon the very next day. However, if you’re feeling brave, this is probably the best place to visit.
Some people find it easier to share stories and ideas when they’re a bit tipsy. You couldn’t get that from eating salad.
13. Always read the sign.
This is one good reason why you should always read signs carefully. Make sure you do it before entering pubs. It’s one way to avoid getting tricked.
14. Man’s worst enemy
Like what others say, you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Never allow alcohol to be too far from your reach.
All of us have a purpose in life and that includes grains. Some of them turned to bread while others become beer. I guess what they turn into depends on luck.
16. The official sunblock
You don’t expose yourself to the sun when you’re inside pubs. And when you don’t get your skin exposed to the sun, you minimize the chances of damage to its layers.
17. Don’t risk it.
When a pub says it has nice drinks, trust it. Don’t take your chances. You might get eaten by bears if you’re unlucky.
18. No dating app needed
You’ll never feel lonely when you’re drunk. Alcohol can turn you into a really friendly person.
If you’re planning on doing the same thing, make sure that you are using the right kind of alcohol. Also, remember not to do it often. Drinking too much alcohol is bad for your body.
20. Masks on
Make it a habit to wear your mask these days. Don’t disgrace yourself.
This shop has had enough of people asking them if they have certain items. With that sign, I don’t think anyone would dare ask that question again.
22. No tantrums
Don’t feel mad if pubs won’t let you in. You can come back later when you’re 21 and older.
Not all people can do that. Only skilled women have the ability to hold an argument for 6 hours and more.
24. Smelly ghosts
Just like ghosts, you can’t see farts. However, you can definitely smell them.
25. “Losing” a friend
This poor guy needs to find another buddy. It looks like he won’t be seeing his friend anytime soon.
26. Broken deal
Don’t trust alcohol all the time. While it can help you be funnier, smarter, and a better dancer, it can also turn you into the most embarrassing person.
Vodka is a very good dance instructor. It can teach you dance moves you’ve never seen before.
There’s a certain drink for each feeling. If you can’t understand how you’re feeling, just mix a few drinks and you’ll be fine.
29. A solution for everything
This one’s quite true. Alcohol can solve almost everything- from a broken heart, poor self-esteem to a bad day at work.
30. Not selling
They’re not selling tacos in this pub. They’re just giving you a hint on what goes best with their booze.
31. Read all the lines.
This is one good reason why you shouldn’t always read between the lines. You might get the wrong idea if you do.
Who says you can’t be excited about Thursday? With a few bottles of beer, you can make any day a great day.
33. Your choice
It’s all up to you and your choice. You can either enjoy a few drinks and some good food or turn right and get bored with life.
34. No worries
Alcohol can make you forget about your problems temporarily. Just don’t drink more than you’re supposed to so you don’t end up with more problems.
35. Politics and wine
Politics can be stressful. If you can’t decide which party to support, take a deep breath and sip some wine. You’ll feel better after.
36. A test
If you’re not sure if you’re too drunk already, try pronouncing the word. If you can still say it, then go ahead and drink more.
37. Staying hydrated
Beer is also considered as a diuretic. It’ll make you pee more often, increasing your risk of dehydration.
38. On Valentine’s Day
No date? No problem. A bottle of tequila will do the trick.
I’m pretty sure this pub doesn’t need to do this trick. People are naturally attracted to beer.
40. The future
I guess this pub has a lot of divorced customers. It’s too familiar with the trend.
