It can be really disappointing when you find someone you connect with, only to have them leave without an explanation. The ‘if only’ scenarios start to fill our minds as we wonder what could have been.
That’s what happened here, it seems. It’s not every day that you meet some special. All it took was five minutes for this bird to make a good impression, so that must’ve been one of the best pigeons ever.
A Unicorn of Signs
Who lost their beautiful, prancing unicorn? We wish we had run into this missing unicorn; who knows the kind of luck we might have. According to this sign, unicorns are alive and well and like to take strolls through Central Park.
With a friendly disposition, this unicorn seems incredibly hard to come by! We hope they find their 'not-so-mythical' creature...
This special doggo made a special friend, and that friend does not want to give him back! With an expression like that, who would want to? At least his past owner knows he's been found and is being taken care of.
As long as he doesn’t call and make things awkward, everything should be fine. This may be a harsh reminder to pay better attention to your pet. It's only once they're gone that we realize how much we miss them!
We noticed how the reward was marked down from $20.00 to $10.00. Ten dollars, really? Tom must really not care if anyone finds his dog, Eric.
With so much going on in this sign, people would probably think it’s a prank. Tom is also trying to sell a drum for $20. What are Tom's priorities here?
Don’t Make Your Chicken Sad
Chicken is one of America’s most beloved dishes. You can prepare chicken in so many ways, and the final results are always tasty. If you have a chicken for a pet, we’d advise against upsetting them. You never know what they’re capable of when they’re not in the best of moods.
Apparently, they’ll run away if you don’t take proper care of them. Their feelings are also visible based on how they act, which is how the person who found this chicken could tell it was unhappy.
You Have To Say Yes…
This sign takes trolling to a new level. Of course, whoever can see and read can see the flyer. We’re sure there were a couple of head scratches and chuckles from folks as they walked by this.
It’s surprising to see how many tabs were taken, but it's interesting that they didn't even spell flyer correctly.
'Cause Lionel wonders where you are, and he wonders what you do. This sign is incredibly clever and funny. Whoever made it deserves a gold star! We can't help but wonder how he came up with this idea.
This slightly surprised Lionel Richie's photo is rather fitting because we are also unsure why it exists. Remember that weird music video, though? It's almost as random as this sign!
A Missing Ninja Turtle?
This poor soul lost his pet turtle, as well as a Japanese martial arts weapon, known as a pair of nunchucks. Those seem like two things that have nothing to do with each other unless you grew up in the late 80s or early 90s.
If you did, you know exactly what he was going for. This guy’s hero may appear slow, but he reassures us that he’s very dangerous. Until he returns, the person who put up the ad advises evildoers to beware.
When You Lose Your Mind
So how do you get your mind back after losing it? Some of us may have wondered about this; maybe we've reached our breaking point or simply just needed a break. But there is good news, according to this sign, when you lose your brain, you become happy.
Do we wonder who put this sign up? And how did they lose their brain exactly? These are very pressing issues that have not been addressed in this sign, and there's not even a number we could contact to find out!
That's a Funny “Cat”
It's difficult to say if this is a joke or if this poster is 100% serious. Maybe someone should inform them that the 'cat' in question is not actually a cat but a possum. However, we can kind of see the resemblance if we squint real hard.
This specific possum looks quite mean, and as the sign aptly describes, 'not very friendly.' Whoever found her must have had excellent intentions, despite this possums hissing and growling.
Just an Awesome Dog
Some people just want to show off their pets, whether the general public cares to see it or not, that won't stop them from posting signs like this just to show how awesome they are. Finally, that last asterisk pops up, and the locals feel less bad and angrier that they wasted their time.
At least they got to see an owner-pet relationship that’s loving. If you read through the entire poster, you will learn some interesting facts about Gilligan. He likes Kraft cheese, has a gorgeous flowing mane, and is, in fact, not lost.
Have You Seen THIS Fly?
Whoever put this poster up must really love Harry, his hairy fly. We'd never thought we would see a poster for a pet fly, and there's even a BIG REWARD!
We know what you are thinking; this must be a prank, right? Maybe it is a prank; maybe it isn't. At this point, it's quite difficult to say with complete accuracy if it's 100% real.
Please Find Trip
Trip seems to be a bit down on his luck; we hope his owner finds him. He loves him a lot even though he doesn’t respond to his calls. With a reward of $500, the owner will pay a portion of their rent to get their precious cat back.
Trip's owner may think that he’s can be a jerk sometimes, but he still wants him to come back. And you get half a thousand dollars if you find him and return him, which is quite a generous deal.
We have another unicorn sign for you, and this one is even better. If anyone comes across this enchanting horse, then the author of this poster has some special advice for them. Put down the illicit substances.
You shouldn’t ever come across a unicorn frolicking in the fields unless you're taking some hardcore substances. Maybe this poster is a sign to those who may need a reminder to take it down a notch.
Keep The Dog!
It looks like someone is distraught with Daisy; as sweet and innocent as “Daisy” look, it doesn’t sound like she’s the best pet to have. Although, if we're honest, if a dog runs into the streets without responding to their name, their owners didn't train them properly.
So maybe Daisy isn't such a bad dog after all, with this sign being a cautionary tale of what can happen when you don't properly care for your pets.
Some woman is in a desperate search for a boyfriend, so she thought of putting up posters in her urgent appeal. We wonder if anyone responded to her strange request... probably even stranger people.
The sign reads: "LOST boyfriend," with a photograph of Ryan Gosling directly underneath it, 'if this is you… or similar… please get in touch.'
Someone Hire This Babysitter
If you ever want to offer your services as a babysitter, this is probably not the way to go about it. We can't imagine any parent readily handing over their 'screaming' baby to Jareth G. King, let alone pay him!
He may be offering his babysitting services since 1986 and have a castle for an office. Still, if this poster is of any indication, we doubt any rational thinking person would deem him a good babysitter.
Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment described as an inconsistency, conceived by Austrian-Irish physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935, during discussions with Albert Einstein.
It's funny because the famous experiment argues that the cat ends up both dead and alive at the same time. That's where this poster comes in and pokes fun at the theory.
Acts of Kindness
It's signs like this that remind us that ultimately, people are good. This isn't a funny sign, but it does make us smile.
If only more people could be this way, instead of posting the signs we usually see. More smiles provided this way are the key to having a great day, so here’s to hoping this brighten’s your day.
This poster is quite an anomaly. Whoever posted this probably thought it was funny to collect hundreds of these 'Lost Dog' flyers he found hanging in the park. We bet the person who made the original flyers did not think it was so funny.
It would be a shame if this sign is real since that dog’s owners certainly want their beloved dog back. Hopefully, it's just a prank, but we have to say that it’s pretty amusing!
We Get It
Missing: two hours. We can all relate to this poster, all those times we've spent waiting. The person who made this poster expects to get those two hours back, but we're afraid to say that it's unlikely he'll get them back.
What is curious, though, is that the phone number listed is 1-800-4-Zyrtec. As Claritin's biggest competitor, Zyrtec, must be happy to see they gained another happy customer.
Free at Last
Some dogs just want to feel free and run unencumbered, without the boundary of a fence or wall. After all, who wants to feel limited by a physical border when they can revel in the joys of freedom.
“Don’t try to find me. I have finally escaped my ‘master’s’ wicked clutches. To the others, I say: JOIN ME. BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU. Vive la liberté. – Pierre.”
Another Scary Cat
The person behind this poster is not too familiar with cats or even animals of any kind. No one would mistake this creature for a cat, even if we’re not sure exactly what the animal pictured is. It looks like a badger.
It's funny that he added that the cat isn’t house trained, with a disappointed smiley face! Also, the wild animal isn’t wearing a collar or ID of any sort.
Limited Time To Find Aaron
According to this person, their pet mosquito is missing, and they only have three days to locate “Aaron,” a mosquito, because he has n incredibly short life span.
Just as a side note, Aaron is also carrying both the West Nile virus and malaria. Yikes! “Aaron was a good mosquito that always liked to fly.” Poor Aaron… we hope he gets home soon. Also, this flyer must have received some pretty funny calls.
What is Happening?
There is so much going on in this poster; where do we even start? The man is wearing a horse mask and bright red rain jacket while holding a tabby cat on a boat on the open sea.
The sign only says, “have you seen this cat?” with no other information or contact details. Obviously, it was the bright, chaotic visuals that caught our eye.
Well, you definitely won't see something like this every day. It appears that someone must have lost their cloud, the cloud was last seen above their house, and 'may or may not respond to Mr. Wisples.'
We're sorry to say that they might want to manage their expectations, as clouds come and go, appear and evaporate. There's no point in getting attached.
Not the Best Photo
“Have you seen this dog?” read the caption of this poster; it follows with an “I have now.” It’s actually pretty funny considering it's in the ‘missing pet’ poster form. The best thing about this flyer, obviously, is the look on the poor pup’s face. It may be unflattering, but it's also hilarious.
If we got such a funny pic of our dog, we’d probably want to share it with the world in an original way like this poster maker did.
A Cute Kitty
Kudos to the individual who made this sign advertising a found cat that’s apparently not missing, just trying to move in with her family. We hope the kitty finds his home if he has one, but if not, we’d like to keep him because he’s just so cute and adorable!
This particular one needs a follow-up story, did the cat find his home, or did he stay with the new person?
What Is The Reward?
Lancelot, the 18-month-old crab, is missing, and it looks like his owner really wants his pinchy pet back. It's a good thing he warned folks that Lancelot knows how to do Chinese burns.
With his distinguishing features and jaunty walking style, this poster's most intriguing part is actually the non-cash reward. What could it be?
Missing Big Cat
Mr. Tiddles is not exactly what we could call a pet cat; he is, in fact, a lion. As an 8,5 feet long, 800 lbs. cat, he would be pretty difficult to lose and tough to train.
His ‘lost pet’ with orange fur and a big fluffy head happens to be a lion. One that enjoys playing with its food. We’re not going out looking for this wild cat; we would like to live a little longer.
A floppy disk drive has been missing, and it seems that it must have had some sentimental value; after all, who would want to steal a floppy disk?
“Last seen on a desk in my garage. Drive has been in my family for years, sentimental value.” It’s helpful that they included a photo because many people would probably not have a clue what a floppy disk drive looks like nowadays.
Who You Gonna Call?
His name is Vince, and his eyes are blood red. The poster also states that Vince can do tricks: he “rolls over, opens gateways to other dimensions.” Neat!
If you aren't familiar with this unusual monster, it's ‘Vinz’ as in Vinz Clortho, a key master and loyal minion to the Sumerian shape-shifting Gozer from Ghostbusters.
You Can Keep Him
Uh oh, this poster tells a tale quite different from the other 'Lost' signs we've seen so far. Once you read the sign, it quickly becomes clear that this ginger cat isn’t exactly welcome back home. “Call if you find him and want to keep him. Will pay $$$!”
Funny to think of the girlfriend watching her bf putting these mean posters up all over the neighborhood and feeling glad that she found such a caring guy. At least he acknowledges the chance they’ll break up over this.
A Rare Breed
Even though he is “missed dearly” at home, it quickly becomes apparent that Killer may not be so friendly; not only are the photos very telling, but the description included in the poster clarifies any doubt we as readers may have.
His genetic background may be to blame for this, but despite his temperament, Drew is even offering a $100 reward for whoever finds him; he must really be a good dog, despite his snarling!
My Imaginary Friend Is Missing
Having an imaginary friend may be a normal and healthy part of childhood play. Having an imaginary friend has even shown to benefit childhood development. If your child has an imaginary friend, it's completely OK.
Although they may seem very real to their creators, children sometimes really believe they exist and don't stop looking for them; maybe this child thought his kid went missing when he actually just grew out of this phase.
This poster for a lost parrot seems fairly standard and normal as a poster, that is until we see the flyer directly underneath it, the one about the parrot BBQ.
We hope it's a joke and that it's only been posted for a few laughs! Nobody really wants to eat parrot, do they?
Anyone who enjoys Prince's music will get a kick out of the lost and found posters. One of his iconic hit songs, “Raspberry Beret,” contains the lyrics, “She wore a raspberry beret, the kind you find in a second-hand store.”
It’s not really clear whether the top poster is related to the song, but the bottom poster made it obvious that Prince found it, and it's his now... Finders keepers.
Maybe next time you lose your set of house keys, don't post your address for all to see, as well as the times your away from home! Perhaps they are a little naive and have never watched the news.
If this poster is real, then whoever made it was clearly not thinking when they put their home address and the hours they’re out of the house printed on it.
I Don't Think That's a Dog.
Someone seems to have found a dog that does not really look like a dog or bark like a dog. This dog probably quacks and waddles and likes to swim in a pond.
Can someone please educate the person who put this poster up and let them know that this is, in fact, not a dog but a duck?
Their huge size means that they can shape the landscape they are in – if you lost an elephant, you'd notice right away and easily tell where they are heading but the tracks and chaos they leave behind.
Frodo Baggins seems to have lost his precious ring. Now some rings are more valuable than others, so if you lose one, you might as well put up a sign in the hopes that it's been found by a good person who wants to return it.
With a gold inscription written in the elvish language and causes invisibility when worn, and may cause malevolence. Now that's a rare ring!
With an emphasis on the crazy, if you didn't catch it in the poster, Klaus is off his medication and won't hesitate to 'rip your face off' as is mentioned in the poster.
Klaus's owner doesn't seem eager to have him back, though, as he states in the poster to whoever finds him, he just calls animal control and has them deal with it.
Quite recently, physicists submitted an explanation in the form of “wormholes,” which are also known as gravitational tunnels. This group of scientists proved that by formulating two entangled black holes, then tearing them apart, they made a wormhole — essentially a “shortcut” through the universe — joining the distant black holes.
This poster attempts to warn anyone of this 'lost wormhole,' because if you do capture one, you'll mess with the space/time continuum, and nobody wants that!
After looking everywhere, this guy decided to put up a poster in a desperate attempt to find the final piece to his puzzle. Good luck!
After what must have been a very arduous morning, this guy was finally able to print this poster and place it up around the neighborhood, praying someone would come and pick up their velociraptor pet immediately.
As a 5ft tall dinosaur, he must have been a handful; we wonder if animal control would've been able to help at all?
Is That Chewie?
It seems Han Solo lost his favorite companion and co-pilot, Chewie, who we all know as Chewbacca, the good-natured Wookiee warrior from the core group of rebels, fighting for the sake of the galaxy.
He may have a short temper, but he's also pretty accurate with a bow; Chewie has a big heart -- and is unwavering in his loyalty to his friends.
Tarantulas are quite unlike any other mainstream pet species. They are intimidating with their looks, but with proper care, they can be absolutely harmless... Tarantulas are generally docile; however, tarantulas will bite if they feel threatened, and their bites are venomous, so don't scream when you see one.
Quite contrary to popular opinion, tarantulas can be excellent pets for those willing to keep them. We hope that Conrad makes it home safely - and not squished under someone's shoe.
This is neither a lost nor found poster, but a 'wanted' poster, searching for minions to sacrifice their lives and do the bidding of one evil genius. With that for a wanted poster, how could you not call?
You must be prepared to work 24-7 for a fascist psychopath, for close to no pay, but there are costumes and laser death rays. Where do we sign up?
Not Quite Another Poster
This is what Obi-Wan says to some Stormtroopers in 'Star Wars: A New Hope' when he, Luke, R2-D2, and C-3PO are trying to avoid detection by the Empire. Obi-Wan is using the "Jedi Mind Trick" to manipulate the Stormtrooper into merely believing that R2 and 3PO aren't the droids they're looking for when, in fact, they are the droids they're looking for.
It's basically another way to say "nothing happening here." It may not be another 'lost' poster, but it is funny!
Would you really describe an animal in exact detail right after you ate it? Probably not, especially someone else’s missing pet.
Could that be what this person did? Why is it that so many animals seem to taste like chicken?
