Blame it on the rain (she wrote, trying not to provoke a Milli Vanilli cyber sing-along) but today I’m cheered by looking back at photos of fun signs and t-shirts from Rarotonga. They remind me of the Rartongan people we met- friendly, funny people who are quick to laugh, love to tease, and use the word “cheeky” to describe each other.
Rarotonga’s a small island, and while riding around the island via the main road (less than an hour), shopping in the market, and going out to eat, we saw plenty that cracked us up.
First, it’s impossible to miss the road signs, where the messages are important and spot-on, and the way they’re expressed makes them funny:
And then there are the self-deprecating jokes on t-shirts. Rarotongans don’t take themselves too seriously to have a laugh at others’ perceptions…or misperceptions:
And finally the signs in restaurants…we’re all fair game:
Have photos of funny signs from places you’ve been? We’d love to see them! Feel free to share them on our Facebook page!
