25 Of The Funniest Protest Signs Ever

When there’s a gathering of the masses, it’s usually not the intelligent minds that prevail. Often the mob mentality takes over and a protest just turns into something ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong, joining in a protest to stand up for what’s right, to combat a gross injustice or to help people acknowledge our god given rights are amazing causes. But what we, so often, is a gathering of the masses to try to be a part of something bigger than themselves, without a real education as to WHY. People are joining protests so they can claim they were part of a movement. It’s become as much a moment to establish bragging rights and gain social plaudits as is to actually make a difference in the world. Some of these people make an attempt at attaining a sense of individuality by maintaining the message of the masses, while others seek the spotlight by going against the grain. Here are 25 comedic representations of those types of people. These are the ones that really stand out in a crowd, for good reason.

1. Anyone For Scrabble Later:

The other side says, “I Hate Crowds.” I’m really wondering why this guy even showed up to the rally.

2. Bacon Is Good:

It doesn’t have to be good for me or for you, bacon is just good. This guy could have totally stopped writing the sign there and nailed a message that most would agree with.

3. Don’t Be A Douche:

Wherever this guy is, whatever the circumstance, this is always a great message!

4. Generic Angry Slogan:

Oh boy. This one might as well say, “I Just Want To Fit In.”

5. Stop Raping:

This should be a no brainer.

6. I Am A Little Upset:

I guess that goes a long way in explaining the little sign.

7. I’d Even Prefer Joffrey:

It’s a pretty good indication that your government is in trouble when people would prefer a fictional super villain to the current leadership.

8. I Don’t Know What We’re Yelling About:

Well, at least you’re strong enough to admit it.

9. If God Hates Gays:

You know, that is a pretty good argument.

10. If Your Beliefs Fit On A Sign, Think Harder:

That’s a good point. But, do I really want to take philosophical advise from a sign telling me not to take advice from a sign? My brain is starting to hurt.

11. I Hate Crowds:

Then what the heck are you doing at a protest? Seems like you didn’t really plan that one out very well.

12. I Have A Sign:

Sure enough. There’s your sign!

13. Is My Point Valid Now:

No. I’m pretty sure that it is not. But I’ll give you this… At least you took the time to write something down.

14. Nom Nom Nom:

What? Is this chick the Vagi-Monster? This is a wild perversion of my blue childhood friend, the cookie monster.

15. I’m So Angry I Made A Sign:

Ooooh. Look out now. If every angry person made a sign, we would run out of trees to produce paper in no time.

16. I Want More Tortillas:

You know, I am totally with this guy! Why do we get three tiny tortillas and a whole plate of fajita meat and veggies. This makes no sense.

17. I Was Told There Would Be Cake:

This sign makes it really easy to spot the fat guy in the crowd!

18. Legalize Gay Marijuana:

Straight forward and around the point. Huh? Marriage. Marijuana. I guess three letters into the word someone got distracted.

19. Can’t Afford To Use It:

Way to use a prop to make a point. I bet that sign got heavy pretty quickly.

20. My Arms Are Tired:

Oh yeah? Try switching signs with the mop guy!

21. The People Behind Me Can’t See:

That’s really almost thoughtful of you. I think if you really cared, though, you would have never made the sign in the first place.

22. This Is Only A Stick, Don’t Shoot:

I’m not going to shoot.

23. This Wouldn’t Happen At Hogwarts:

Yeah? Well, we don’t all have the funds or abilities to attend the greatest school of witchcraft and wizardry, now do we?

24. What Would Optimus Prime Do?:

I’m guessing he’d say something awesome like, “Freedom is the right of all sentinel beings.” Then he’d transform into a big rig and burn some rubber!

25. Worst Government Ever:

Nothing makes the government take a person seriously like being a full-grown adult with a cartoon character on a sign. Clearly the desire to be humorous heavily outweighed the need for change.

Some people will do anything for attention. Seriously, if you’re going to do something for attention, do it wisely. Make sure that you have a message, a reason, a purpose. If you don’t have a purpose, all you are really accomplishing is proving that the bulk of the masses are uninformed, careless and idiotic beings representing a detriment to the cause. Shameless self promotion and attention whoring are nothing more than counterproductive measures to the overall communal acts of activism. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, they may be idiots, but at least they’re good for a laugh. I can’t get enough of these clever protest signs.
