Considering the road closed sign was put up to warn of lava and unexpected eruptions carried an engulfed it in Hawaii, not really that silly. Just be glad it isn’t a photo with a car and people inside. 5/3 Bank? Ho hum. Wells Fargo logo is a wagon pulled by horses harkening back to their history…
The first time I saw this bank name, I thought it was an odd name for a bank. Not so much funny, but attention getting…
I guess us Midwesterners are so used to seeing 5/3 Banks that we just don’t see the humor in this photo. But there are a lot of incorrect information on 5/3 Bank. So brief history lesson:
Fifth Third Bank is the 22nd largest banking institution in the U.S. It is headquartered in Cincinnati and has 1,368 branches in 12 states. It is NOT named after the streets of the headquarters building as 5th and 3rd streets run parallel 2 blocks from each other in downtown Cinci. The headquarters is actually at the intersection of 5th and Walnut. It is named after the merger of Third and Firth National banks in 1908, but celebrates it’s founding as 1858 from the original Fifth National Bank. Most Kroger locations in the Midwest have a 5/3rd Bank branch located inside. Many minor-league ballparks are named after Fifth Third Bank including the baseball minor-league team, the Dayton Dragons which holds the current minor-league record in consecutive sell-out seasons in attendance.
Seriously, a lot of these signs are really not that funny. I have seen a lot better ones to post to an article than these. Guess everyone’s humor is a little different :P
What is Drit????!!!!!
I didn’t get the 5/3 bank as being funny either. But here is Wiki’s reason for the name:Fifth Third’s unusual name is the result of the June 1, 1908 merger of Third National Bank and Fifth National Bank, to become the Fifth Third National Bank of Cincinnati. While Third National was the senior partner, the merger took place during a period when prohibitionist ideas were gaining popularity, and it is legend that “Fifth Third” was better than “Third Fifth”, which could have been construed as a reference to three “fifths” of alcohol. The name went through several changes over the years until March 24, 1969, when it was changed to Fifth Third Bank.
Fifth Third Bank= one of the worst banks in the nation. They are named after the streets where the original bank branch is located.
That “Road Closed” sign is OBVIOUSLY a Photoshop job. Strange lighting, lack of shading, sign position, post looks like it’s not stuck in the ground… this job is not worthy of professional comment.
The name Fifth Third Bank comes from the merger of two large
Cincinnati-based banks, the Fifth National Bank of Cincinnati and the
Third National Bank of Cincinnati. In most mergers, only one name
survives although U.S. business history is full of companies that
adopted some form of joint name.
What’s so funny about the funeral home sign?
5/3 is not an irrational number. Duh …. the ratio of 5 to 3…. stupid.
5 divided by 3 equals 1.666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666
