Funny Obvious Plants by Jeff Wysaski

Via Jeff Wysaski/Obvious Plant.

Comedian Jeff Wysaski is no stranger to viral stardom. He's been creating his own original content and curating other funny stuff for his blog, Pleated-Jeans, for many years. He's even been called "one of the funniest people on these here Internet tubes" by sites like Buzzfeed and Huffington Post. Wysaski's latest effort to make us all laugh is his "Obvious Plant" project, which entails secretly placing funny signs, pamphlets and books in unexpected places all over Los Angeles. So far he has visited places like a wine store, a paint shop and a cat shelter to sprinkle a little bit of his unique brand of humor around his city. He then shares pictures of his creations with his fans on Facebook and other social networks.

Can you imagine going shopping and stumbling upon a funny sign like these? How awesome would that be? Since we can't all be in the LA area, let's take a look at some of his funniest real life plants so far.

We always love a good funny (or hacked) fast food sign. This one is even better than most. Happy Birthday, Sheila!

Fake Self-Help Books

Via Jeff Wysaski/Obvious Plant.

Wysaski told The Huffington Post,  "My favorite result came after I placed the fake self-help books at [Book Soup in LA]. Some intrepid Redditors figured out where they were and went up there to check them out. After pointing the books out to the store staff, they removed them from the shelves and placed them on a special display marked with a price tag of $7 million each. I love when the store has a good sense of humor about it.”

It's not meant to be insulting... it's just true. What's the point of having a turtle for a pet, anyway?

Damn it, Phillip!

Zoo signs can be funny all by themselves, but when Obvious Plants are involved, no animal is safe.

Ever Wonder Who Leaves Those Reviews at IKEA?

Via Jeff Wysaski/Obvious Plant.

Ikea stores are always fun to peruse on their own, but with product reviews like these I'd never want to leave! Swedish Meatballs AND hilarious signs placed randomly around the store = I'm never coming home.

Very Interesting Book Store Categories

Via Jeff Wysaski/Obvious Plant.

Wysaski sneaked into a local bookstore and gave the sections funny new names. This one was "Dudes Who Lost Their Shirts." If you need me, I'll be browsing over in "Meals You'd Love To Cook But Never Will."

The Cats At This L.A. Area Cat Shelter Are Very Opinionated

Via Jeff Wysaski/Obvious Plant.

Puh-lease, Camille. Everybody secretly likes fart jokes. Everybody.

These signs were placed in a local cat shelter and served a greater good than mere humor; the signs provided more exposure for these cute adoptable cats. Bonus!

Keep up the great work, Jeff!
