Vote for Your Favorite in the Wild, Weird and Wacky Street Signs Contest!

Beware falling sheep!

by on Aug.31, 2012

Hard to believe but we’re ready to wrap up the Wild Weird and Wacky Street Signs Contest…but first, we need your help picking the winners from 14 finalists.

We’ve had a hard time keeping a straight face ever since we asked our readers to submit some of the Wild, Weird and Wacky Street Signs they’ve spotted. The contest has clearly struck the right chord and our e-mail box has been filled with hundreds of entries from around the world.  We’ve seen signs that warn of falling sheep, others that tell us to “Grinn and Baret.”

We’ve been welcomed to the German village of Windpassing.  Helpful roadcrews have posted parking signs that would require a law degree to comprehend. And readers have sent us plenty of inexplicable billboards – like one for a new brand of bottled water, “now with H2O”!

Trying to sort through this motley collection hasn’t been easy and it seems that each of our judges – which include members of TheDetroitBureau.com, and sponsors such as NBC News – has individual favorites.  But we’ve been able to pare the list down to 14 finalists and now we’re asking your help in selecting the winners.  Remember, there are some great prizes at stake, including a $500 gift certificate from Bridgestone Tires, a great digital camera, a navi system with traffic and weather, and more!

To check out all 14 finalists and vote, Click Here. (You’ll be taken to contest co-sponsor NBC’s page.)

We’ll announce the winners on Sept. 10.
