The world we live in is full of flaws and unfair means. If we look around us, it is most likely that we come across something that is not right. We have issues of inequality, racism, and sexism prevailing in our society these days. Many activists and advocates have worked hard to banish the world we live in from such problems that cause thousands of people struggle to live a happy everyday life. These are indeed serious cases that we should take into consideration with great interest and depth. But sometimes there are so many people that miss the mark and completely fall off topic during some of these intense protests. Some sign boards are meant for safety while some other are meant for rallies.We know that there is a time and place for everything but these signs carried by protesters are too downright hilarious. Take a look at a list of the funniest signs spotted at protests that would surely make you laugh out loud.
You Got Money Problems?
It is often said that money makes the world go round. This is actually very true as everyone needs to work and earn to have a stable living condition. The money we make determines the quality of life we can afford and on so many levels, shows what we are as a person. Because money is such a crucial aspect of life, we often fight over it and many people face problems. This man holding this signboard is covered from head to toe with money. The big question is if has covered himself with real money or just went to photocopy his whole outfit. It is hard to believe that a man protesting about money would decide on going out wearing nothing but money. There have been a lot of debates held about people who want wealth to be equally distributed so as to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor.
Just For The Record
As we are all so different, we often take different approaches on how we show our anger and hate. Some people feel the need to shout things out. Now, this is a very good way of trying to express anger but it mostly ends up with the protesters suffering from laryngitis. Imagine losing your voice and still not putting your point across. That would be a double loss that took so much effort. This person cleverly makes use of the signboard strategy by expressing anger in a humorous way. Although the holder never actually addresses the reason behind the anger, it caught the eye of a lot of people who would ultimately want some answers. Maybe some explanation was made after all of this and the message could actually be sent without making such a racket or noise. So, in the end, this might prove to be a smart way of dealing with issues.
Signs That We Live By
As we have mentioned earlier, many people do not feel the need to protest or see the point in forceful tactic to spread their agenda. There are some cases where the protesters have taken things ways too seriously and too extreme that some members of the public have become disinterested. It takes the right amount of enthusiasm to influence other people so let this be a note for those who believe in shoving their beliefs in other people’s throats. A group of people decided to get together and make a mockery out of all of these unnecessary protests we often come across these days. Our favorite sign has to be the ‘build prisons on the moon’ one as it is obviously poking fun at protesters who sometimes fall out of line and demand something that is not possible/necessary at all.
Some Sins And Others
Since the bible has existed two millennia ago, it has become a kind of tool to shape society and the way we live. Humans are all we all know, flawed with countless sins that we cannot stop ourselves from committing. There are more sensationalized sins such as same-sex unions or adultery, that people love to point out forgetting about the basic sins that are in the same paragraph in the bible. People often forget or rather, choose to forget that God had told us not to eat shrimp or bacon. The bible has also told us to play nice and to treat others as we would like to be treated. Society has made so many contradictions on how religion has been interpreted that there is so much confusion to differentiate what is right and what is wrong. This protester has highlighted the shrimp passage to justify the sins of homosexuals. Is this too much?
An Obvious Statement
During protests, what would be the best way to grab the attention of the authorities? A huge sign right? The protest here was going all well with nothing to hamper the message that these people were trying to convey. However, there was a very distracting sign that completely got attention for all the wrong reasons. It was a huge sign that reads “The People Behind Me Can’t See”. This would have been a very good opportunity that could perhaps get the people involved to spread their message. But sadly, we would never get to know what these people protested about. We just hope that the person holding this signboard was doing the people at the back a favor by blocking their view from looking at something they would later regret ever seeing. Sometimes blocking another person’s, nay, a number of people’s view could turn out to be something positive. We certainly hope this was such a case.
Euro Vision Signboards
After finding out that the UK ‘accidentally’ voted and was in favor of Brexit, A number of people gathered to show their disagreement with the decision. We can clearly see from the sign they carry that these people are indeed in favor of the European Union through the subversion of multiple hit songs and their lyrics. Even though some artists are from a Briton like Adele, some of the other artists that have been used aren’t European, but actually American. Look at the sign that has the caption of Whitney Houston saying that I will always love the EU. It is indeed a sad fate for these people who are in favor of EU but have been left disappointed after the UK made a decision to vote against it. These protesters are quite commendable as they have made such a big issue and shed a little humor to it.
