    Has anyone else seen those houses with the funny signs on the front gate? We went to get some more chickens once and got told to ignore the sign, it read something like " Quarantine area autherised personel only" the lady living there said that because of were she lived people would frequently pull up in her front yard wanting to camp there but since the sign went up she hasn't had many visitors at all even the johovas just left a note in her letter box.

    My Mum was sick of people coming in to buy birds off her and bringing their ferrel kids with them so she was thinking of putting a cage out the front with a sign saying "Please deposit ferrel kids here" she hasn't done it yet but she'll probably get some very strange looks if she does.

    Best sign I ever saw:

    Children left unattended will be given a cup of expresso and a free puppy!

    My other fav is painted on a rock by my moms front door:

    I child proofed my house but they still get in.

    On my front window, "Jesus is not a vaccumm, please stop selling him door to door"

    I live with a mile of 3 churches, all of whom send out people to the neighborhood, we getting 2-3 door ringers a month while I'm sleeping in was common.

    I always like the ones that say "My (insert type of animal) can make it to the gate in 3 seconds, can YOU?" Those sure keep ME out! [​IMG]

    When I was in college, we got the god squads 2-3 times a day some saturday mornings. I had a house-mate who was a huge, bearded fellow. He used to like to tell them he was a druid, and would ask their opinions on whether human sacrifice was "out dated", even if one only used criminals. He would sometimes put on his "Ren Fest" cape and answer the door with this odd-looking twisted staff in hand ... He'd invite them in for coffee, beer or mead, and they'd always politely excuse themselves. I think eventually they all learned to avoid the house entirely.​

    My other thought was hanging up a penticale with "I won't tell your kids about my religion, if you stop trying to tell mine about yours". I have been known to answer the doors with my throwing knives strapped on (I throw competitivly).

    I'm all for people following their religions and all that but it does get a bit much when your trying to have a bit of a sleep in and there they are knocking at your door but when we had a rottweiler/ridgeback/pitbull cross dog (total pussycat) they seemed to stear clear of our house. Then when they did come in Dad would stand in the front yard talking and offering them tea or coffee, they never accepted but that may have something to do with the fact that Dad does look a little like Hagrid from Harry Potter.

    My older brother's worse he stands there and talks to them and asks questions as though he's really interested and then they come back with more flyers and little booklets and stuff.

    There was sign on the side of the road one of the ones that usually have something like "slow down road works ahead" or whatever but this one just said " Ha Ha you're gonna be late for work".
