34 Hilarious, Witty, and Eye-Catching Protest Signs
The world is becoming a more problematic place as the years go on. People are constantly clashing over different issues, from race and sexuality to gun violence and the class system. The invention of social media has meant people can vent their two cents on their favorite platform about anything they want.
But the real protesting comes in the streets when people join together as one and show solidarity on an issue. As we have seen over the past few years, events like the Black Lives Matter protests, sparked by the death of George Floyd, and the Roe v Wade protests have seen people turn out in their thousands to show their support for these causes. As well as marching together, many bring signs, which often results in some of the funniest, most witty, and eye-catching protest signs.
Protesting is a series business, but protestors can use their signs to show they have some personality. Humor is often a good way to get a message across, especially when it comes to issues people might not understand. The best protest signs are often humorous while also making a good point about the issue at hand.
We have gathered together a collection of some of the best protest signs we have ever seen. These range from thought-provoking to hilarious, but they all drive home the point they are trying to make, be it about the way African American people are being treated by the police or Donald Trump’s horrible time in the White House. Who knows, they might even inspire you to create your own protest sign.
34 Hilarious, Witty, and Eye-Catching Protest Signs
1. Jesus Is Cool With It
Homosexuality and gay rights are big issues these days. For some reason, there are people out there who don’t think it’s right for people of the same sex to love each other. Not only is this a stupid take, but whatever other people do or the way they choose to live their life shouldn’t concern anyone else.
There are often protests staged when it comes to gay rights and things like same-sex marriage, but few protest signs are as hilarious as this one. This image shows a group of people (most likely religious) with a banner that reads “Homosexuality is a sin! Return to Jesus.” Standing in front of the banner is a man dressed as Jesus holding a sign that reads “I’m Cool With It.” The sign also happens to be in the colors of the LGBTQ flag. Nice work.
2. My Arms Are Tired
The only thing this guy is protesting is his sore arms from holding up his sign all day. All he needs to do is put the sign down and he’ll be fine.
3. Time Travel
Not quite sure what this fella is protesting but his sign about time travel being irrelevant is sure to give you a few laughs.
4. This Is Why We Need Immigrants
This protest sign is a shot at former President Donald Trump. Known for his hatred of immigrants, this protest sign points out how the majority of his wives have been immigrants, and without them, Trump would have never ascended to the level of power that he once had. Hard to argue with this sign.
5. Shit Is Fucked Up and Stuff
This protest sign can be used at any type of protest because as we all know, the world is certainly fucked up and shit, and things are slowly falling to pieces.
6. Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice
Here are two people with signs displaying their views on the pro-life vs. pro-choice debate. While both are trying to make good points, it’s the woman on the right whose sign makes the most sense.
7. I Came To Take Your Job But…
People are always complaining that immigrants are the ones taking all the jobs, but as this satirical sign points out, many Americans don’t have jobs because they don’t want to work, or at least not low-paying jobs. Maybe people should worry more about their own careers than other people’s.
8. Separation of Church and State
This protest sign speaks the truth. It’s about time the church and the state became separate and religion stopped creeping into politics. While people can have beliefs, they should not be influencing major decisions that impact the entire population, all of which share many different belief systems, not just Christianity.
9. If God Hates Gays, Why Are We So Cute?
This is quite the rib tickler and hard to disagree with.
10. The Last Straw
This is what happens when dads go protesting. It doesn’t get any more dad jokey than this sign a man created to protest water prices.
11. I Should Be At Home
This young kid was caught holding this cheap homemade sign at a rally against the Ku Klux Klan. There isn’t much to the sign but the message is clear and simple: down with racism.
12. Boys Will Be Good Humans
This is a message more young boys need to be taught. Respect is everything.
This protestor is having a bit of fun with their sign that has a word spelled in Arabic in large letters. Turns out it just says McDonald’s so there is nothing to worry about.
14. Protesting Racism Has Nothing To Do With Being American
There is a big difference between racism and disliking America, although some people can’t tell the difference. A clever sign this one that was seen at a Black Lives Matter rally.
15. Pornography Hurts…
A great response to the original cardboard sign protesting pornography.
16. The Dude Abides
Using a quote from The Big Lebowski as your protest slogan also works.
17. Muslim Wife
Hopefully, his wife has a sense of humor.

18. Introverts Protesting
When the state of the world is so bad that even introverts are protesting you know it must be a major issue.
19. High School
School shootings continue to happen across the United States, from New York City to Washington to San Francisco, but still, nothing is getting done to change the current gun laws. As this sign points out, kids shouldn’t be turning up at high school and getting killed. Unfortunately, things will never change until the laws do.
20. I’m Not With These Guys
Here is another fella dressed as Jesus with a funny protest sign at the Chicago Gay Pride Parade. Even the police next to him find his sign hilarious.
21. Listen To Science
You would be surprised how often scientists actually get things right.
22. Canadian Protestor
They are a kind and civilized bunch over in Canada as this protestor demonstrates. No need for violence or anger, just a quiet protest to show how annoyed he is.
23. I’m Here for the Gangbang
This gentleman may have gotten a little confused about what goes on at a protest. The chances of a gangbang are pretty slim.
24. Homosexuals are Gay
Just in case you weren’t aware, this sign clears everything up.
25. Spoke To My Ex…
That’s one way to clap back. Very clever sign from this assertive doctor.
26. Trump’s Science Advisor
An accurate representation to be fair.
27. Dog Lover
This is a good enough reason to save the planet as any.
28. Mask Info
This is a little reminder for those wearing masks. It needs to go over your nose to actually have any impact. It doesn’t work properly otherwise.
29. The Wrong Amazon
There’s some truth to this protest sign. If there is any type of Amazon that should be burning it’s the one owned by Jeff Bezos, not the jungle version.
30. Weird Hobby
Taken at an anti-abortion protest, one of these protestors enjoys murdering babies while the other thinks it’s a strange hobby. Very humorous.
31. Millionaires v. Scientists
This protest sign uses the classic comedy Gilligan’s Island to highlight how it’s the millionaires who do nothing and the scientists who do everything, especially when it comes to climate change.
32. The Holy Bible vs. The Holy Trilogy
The Darkside of the Force is the one true religion, at least according to these couple of Stormtroopers who are big fans of Lord Vader.
33. Rave on Putin’s Grave
This photo was taken of a protestor and her sign at a pro-Ukraine protest. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
34. Where’s the Cake?
When you head along to protest with the promise of cake and it’s nowhere to be seen.
