So, I saw this while walking down a random hall of my hospital today. No idea where it leads.

These are my guesses.

1. Trauma ICU

2. Secret hang out for nurses whose backs hurt

3. This is where we hide the Fight Club

Looks like a blue box with a question mark to me. Guess that means it's 2 or 3 and I'm not a member of the secret nurse hangout or fight club.

Aww, shucks! I don't think the image uploaded correctly in my first attempt--I'm hoping the image is coming across now.

Whomp whomppp.

The joke's on us? It is a black and white picture of mountains and sunshine torn in half horizontally. Do I win a prize?

This is actually what appears on my phone app. I don't think your picture posted, unless of course that's what we were guessing.

Well, this has been a bust :banghead:

But reading all of your responses is still making me laugh.

I've never uploaded my own photos to AN before. If this doesn't work, I give up. I keep my amusing sign to myself.

If you can see this....this sign is kind of how my brain feels right now.

No skull fracture...high five! :up: :D

That is a wonderful sign. No idea what it means, but I LOVE IT!

eta- you really should investigate and post an update!!

An actual serious guess here: maybe a warning sign for dangerous or steep stairs ahead =fall risk?

It is a clever sign, no matter what it actually means. Love the parts department guess!

It's a broken person. So, my first thought is the ED. Or a glazier's office (the glass man!). Which seems like an odd thing to have in a hospital.

I like the sign, but it seems like a sign that isn't immediately obvious is kind of a bad sign, right? Imagine if stop signs were artistic and required interpretation.

That would at least make a day in traffic court more interesting

That is so weird. I've seen old signs crack like that as the vinyl ages, but never one that was kind of incomprehensible to begin with.

My guesses:

1) Men's bathroom that way! (My serious guess. It looks like they put the man sticker on crooked, then tried to fix him, then gave up when his parts peeled and they just stuck him on any old way.)

2) Zombie apocolypse ahead

3) Secret black market parts storage

OK, #4 made me laugh. My hubby now is convinced I am nuts, so thanks!

I'm still wondering how a person walks down a random hallway, sees a questionable sign, and doesn't find out where it leads.

But then again, I watch too much Scooby Doo so, carry on.
