With almost 28 million small businesses operating in the United States, competition to attract new customers can get pretty stiff. But mom-and-pop retailers often get creative to bring people the door of their establishments, and there's no better way to do that than elicit a chuckle from someone passing by. Here are 25 of the funniest, whackiest, and just plan strangest business signs that we've found. Enjoy them - and remember to support local businesses (no matter how crazy their signs.)
