Five More Signs of Seattle

They have different messages and they come in a range of media, but today's signs all failed to communicate in some way.

First, this fading beware-of-dog sign looks more like folk art than a warning.

This tiny "do not enter" sign is scaled perfectly to address any fairies or garden gnomes who might happen past.

This logo makes the business look like a place where they bow down to offer extinguishers to fires.

Fifty-three years after the Port Huron Statement, Students for a Democratic Society is so little-remembered that a law firm can use the initials SDS and stay in business.

I wonder if you could make a legal argument that you thought this park was a free zone for drugs, since the sign is missing an important hyphen? (As discussed earlier in cases like this and this.)
