Canadians Have the Best Billboards – Bar None!

Some of you regular Free Spirit readers are from Canada. I have also spent quite a lot of time in our friendly neighbor to the north’s fine country, both as a young Hippie, travelling Rock and Roller, to as a middle-aged family man taking camping trip vacations. I’ve been to all the Provinces, travelled pretty much all over the country, and enjoy the dickens out of the scenery, the people, the culture(s) and all that is Canada.

And Canadians have their own special brand of humour, eh?

Like while motoring along you might see a billboard like this one-

Canadians do like their beer, so you might see one like this …

You might get a Kanadian Kick out of this, too-

And I KNOW this marketing ploy works!

Every time, eh guys?

But wait – got more yuks for y’all… in rural Canada they have these small airstrips for puddle jumpers to land-

And I can’t leave out this bit of wittiness-

Or this one…

And oh. My. God. Are you serious with this one?

Okay, one more and then we’ll leave our friends alone, but … ya gotta admit, this is pretty creative, hmm?

Okay sorry, just hadda add this one to the jocular mix, too… I mean, Smokey the Bear is from Canada, if memory serves me right, and the great old growth forests need all the protection they can get!

So hats off to our friends to the north, y’all roll with some pretty darn good billboards and road signs, eh?

    Thanks for the props, my friend. It’s 6:50AM, kid’s got me up, and reading this is how I spend the first moments of my day — delightful!

    Those are hysterical. With billboards like that travel would be so much more entertaining.

    The chick with the big, almost naked butt? That is my new screen saver. Thanks, Old Silly! πŸ˜‰

    I lived in Calgary for close to eight months and saw many good billboards. One of them advertised swimwear for the klondike. It was all furry. If you ever see that one, grab a picture. I would have, had I a camera. Love their sense of humor and Calgary was one of the friendliest cities I’ve ever been in.

    Couldn’t get away with those here in the states!

    We have an I.K.E.A. around here. I hope they don’t start erecting billboards like the one you have pictured here. In my opinion, I imagine it would be bad for property values and community morale.

    These billboards are hilarious, Marvin. Thanks for the laughs. The Daisy Rifle sign made me snort coffee out my nose. πŸ˜€

      Oops, now they are …. I was too fast.
