14 Church Signs that Would Also Work As Tweets

Before there was Twitter, there were church signs. Frequently confined even to less than 140 characters, church sign writers were the original one-liner artists, crafting endless puns and cultural references with a singular agenda: get you to church.

Sure, they often walk the line between clever and cringe-worthy, profound and offensive, but like all great writers, artists and social media users, church sign writers often err on the side of edgy—post now, apologize later.

Here are 14 church signs that would not be out of place in your Twitter feed (for better or worse):
