    Oh that is good

    Really funny. I didn't think most people needed school for that.

    Sometimes you see the strangest signs - on the way to a lake about an hour from here, I pass "Salt Box Road" and "Swamp Angel Road". Oral School, though - seems like too many people I know are just way too good at that to need any help!

    An odd looking street sign for sure Nat. You know what's interesting as well? There is an Oral School Road, in Mystic Connecticut , which has a school for the hearing impaired on it.

    Been to Foxwoods? The original school was build in Ledyard before moving to Mystic, on Oral School Road

    It could just as well have been "NonAural School Road". ;)

    interpretation is everything

    Could be a where all the dental hygienist and dentists live ... you just gotta wonder...

    the troublesome part....was that my 14 year old laughed harder than my husband and I did...upon asking him what he felt was so funny about the sign--- the laughing reduced considerably,blushed, snickered and said responded "nothing". Teens know too much...sigh

    LOL, that's funny Natalie I had no idea you were in CT when you saw the sign. This brunette didn't even stop to think you may have made a mistake!

    Hehe, that's funny.

    A few years ago I saw a sign on a shed that read "PRIVATE PROPERTY - Trespassers will be violated."

    I nearly ran my car off the road.
