If your family dog or cat is weird enough to be a threat to civilized society, you might want to post a sign alerting all and sundry (and the mailman) to the freaked-out furball lurking just inside.

Wonder Down Under

What's up with these Chat Bizarre and Chien Bizarre signs?

The photographer's not the only one wondering about the above “Chat Bizarre” sign from Adelaide, South Australia. To be fair, most of the creatures inhabiting OZ are bizarre in one way or another so this homeowner's unseen but unusual pet fits right in.

Psycho Pooch

Think cats have cornered the market on the whole “bizarre” thing? Think again... your dog wants in on the action and what Fido wants, Fido gets. In any case, it seems there's so many wacko woofers around that some companies are making money by marketing signs. (bizarre sign image above via Newtown grafitti)

Same sign, different country: extraordinarily weird pets can be found from Australia to California, it seems. Then again, the Venice Beach property above looks kinda ritzy so the threat of a crazed canine could be just that – a threat – meant to deter unwanted intruders and/or roving peddlers of religious tracts.

The Shunning

What's up with these Chat Bizarre and Chien Bizarre signs?

It's said the supposedly “cursed” Stephen Harris House in Providence, Rhode Island inspired the H.P. Lovecraft horror classic “The Shunned House”. In that respect, the curious cluster of warning signs posted on one of the home's gateposts makes perfect sense, especially when translated to (from the top down) “bizarre dog”, “strong, naughty and poorly fed dog”, “whimsical dog” (wut?), and of course “forget the dog, beware the owner”.

Gallic Bred

Ahh Paris, the so-called City of Light where romance rules and weird cats predominate but while love may be the international language, French has a history of being misunderstood by non-francophones. Is the owner of this home constantly fending off pushy foreigners eager to converse nonsensically with a pet-owning Parisienne? Oui oui, mon bizarre cheri!

Letter Perfect

Location, location, location... referring to the placement of this warning sign directly under the front door mail slot. We wonder how many fingers were lost by USPS employees before the homeowner installed the sign? (bizarre sign image above via Valerie Hinojosa)                                           

 

Sole Solicitor

What's up with these Chat Bizarre and Chien Bizarre signs?

Soliciting in San Francisco? Then you've likely learned to tune out all those pesky “no soliciting” signs. The thought of a weird dog on the other side of the door, on the other hand, tends to break through the background noise. Yep, even in French.

Mass Hysteria

What's up with these Chat Bizarre and Chien Bizarre signs?

Dogs and cats living together? C'mon, that hasn't been noteworthy since '84. Wildly unpredictable dogs and insane cats living together, well, that's a whole 'nother level of paranormal activity... and yet here we are, outside someone's front door somewhere in San Francisco. Don't know about you but “outside” this front door is the place you want to be – if you want to keep on being, that is. (bizarre sign image above via Eugene Kim)
