I’m not sure what you interpret from McDonalds™ Yass, but I’m sure it serves your inner demons.

I’m sure Automatic Teller Machine Machines also make you laugh, as do Electronic Point of Sale Transaction Transactions.

please tell me you are being funny maelinar, I would hate for you to have missed this one….

This sign made an appearance in a book called Signspotting 2, a book of hilarious signage from around the world put out by Lonely Planet. It (the sign) has been around for years.

I think American Asses are just as funny as Australian Arses. I guess you wouldn’t call me anal about such things.

Surely they’ve taken it down by now. Actually it gets worse, take a look at the golden arches again, you don’t need much imagination to see it as looking down on someone bending over butt naked with their arse crack showing! I’ll never see macca’s the same way again!

The sign probably isn’t there anymore, it’s such old news.

Supercalafreakinawesome. If they ever decide to change the name of a nightclub in town named after a geometric shape they could just steal this sign. Much more appropriate.

The sign has been there so long that my mum remembers it from when I was a kid. From memory it was taken down for a while then put back up.

I’ll never be good enough for the internet.

The sign is maybe 10 or 15 km on the Yass side of Gunning (on the Hume therefore most Canberrans wouldn’t drive past). It is also easy to miss as the roadside vegetation conceals it from most angles.
The older sign made its appearance on Hey Hey sometime ago (15 yrs?)

I’ve never seen it, what a classic !
Some people would love to be regular like that.

Sports & Outdoor Media Pty Ltd — the advertising company responsible for the sign.
