Florida seems to be a hot spot. We travel a lot through Florida since much of our family has migrated there. Over time I’ve begun to wonder if Florida is the freaky sign capital of the world.

Here’s a collection of signs that we both found during our trips to and from Florida, many of them in a single town–Lake City, Florida.

If you live in Lake City and you don’t know Daniel Crapps, you don’t know sh$%.
