Well, if your signature looks anything like this one (mine does) you might have gotten some 'feedback' about it such as "And that translates to?" or maybe "You're not a doctor are you?".I once even had a past manager refuse my time sheet because he said my signature must be a readable form of my name.
To finally put this to rest, here are the facts:
RCW 9A.04.110 states (sec24): "Signature" includes any memorandum, mark, or sign made with intent to authenticate any instrument or writing, or the subscription of any person thereto
Lectric law library states (sec 47): "It is not necessary that a party should write his name himself, to constitute a signature; his mark is now held sufficient though he was able to write"
The common trend here is that it is also referred to as a "mark". Consider an illiterate person, would they be required to sign a readable words if they cannot read or write? Yes some situations would require (by law) a literate person to bear witness (such as signing documents with those pesky words on it). Really the point here is that this is an acceptable signature:
Xpo-Ferens? What? This "mark" was made by none other than Christopher Columbus himself.

Asked about executions of homosexuals in Iran, Ahmadinejad said the judiciary system executed violent criminals and high-level drug dealers, comparing them to microbes eliminated through medical treatment. Pressed specifically about punishment of homosexuals, he said: "In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country."
With the audience laughing derisively, he continued: "In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you that we have this."

Cause it free's 45k of memory at least,
And that's why everyone who's in knows,
It's also the best DOS to run with Windows!!!!!"
"You think MS-DOS is a mystery admit it,
We made MS-DOS 5 easier, here's how we did it,
We gave it a graphical shell, that's the ticket,
It's DOS with a prettier face, YOU KICK IT!""
I'm seriously crying right now I'm laughing to hard
