Men! Don’t read this!

I haven’t for some time posted a silly sign the likes of which can be seen if you click here.

I wrote a poem about the silliest of silly signs which you can see here:

But on a recent visit to Boscastle in Cornwall with its witchcraft associations we stumbled on this:

Grow your own dope. Plant a man.

Don’t go all macho-hurt-pride on me gents. I told you not to read this.  Anyway, it was himself who pointed it out to me. I’d have walked right past it. I’m only the photographer.

Can You See Him? Can You See Him Now?

I took this photo because it seemed either the park ranger must have been very short-sighted or the bison had a sense of humor. Only when I downloaded the photo did I see the prairie dog. Can you see him?

Look again. There is a little bitty head sticking up out of the mound beneath the bison on the left of the above photos. This is what he looks like:

He obviously didn’t read the sign below and keep his distance!

All signs point to . . . . what?

Over the last eight years during our travels every which way I have taken a peculiar interest in signs. Naturally enough I should have been looking for signs but instead of paying attention to the road signs that were vital to my role as navigator I oft amused myself by taking photos of signs that were funny, interesting, alarming or just unbelievable. I’m still kicking myself for not having my camera to hand when we passed a billboard in Provo, Utah that proclaimed in large letters: KEEP POLIGAMY ALIVE.

As my fascination led to missed turns, terse words and exasperation I thought the least I could do was to share the signs with you, my followers to laugh at, puzzle over or think why did she bother to take that picture?

Some photos are whizzy, fuzzy, out of focus and barely decipherable as I shot through the windshield, the passenger window or past my driver’s nose. And of course, some have squashed bugs in the foreground.

From now on (most) Wednesdays I will post WWN101’s SIGNS, the first one of which kind of explains it all:

If you must know, it is the Crooked River Canyon cliffs that are unstable.
