The Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness

We know you’ll enjoy this hilarious collection of signs and directions that don’t communicate what the designer thought they would. The symbol on the left, for example, obviously meant something to someone, but the proprietor of the Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness suggests it says, “When boxing up your kid, ensure the lid is on securely.”
