    Have you ever come across a sign, billboard or the like that looks funny, out of place or has been worded completely wrong? I've come across a number over the years and regret not having stopped to take a photo, but from now on I intend to do just that, every time I see something that's just not quite right. This one is my first (I'm somewhat worried that they let children and horses drive, even though it may be slowly):

    For some reason, I've always gotten a kick out of the "SLOW Children at Play" signs you see everywhere. Poor folks whose children are so slow they have to warn everyone!

    Driven past this one for about 18 months on and off and finally stopped to get a photo

    Not even out of shot does the house on the sign seem to exist.

    We have signs that say 'Slow down children', which I think is a very good idea. Next time I see one I'll have to get a shot.

    This is one I took in Wellington last year. Someone had creatively modified the sign on a toilet block in the botanic gardens:

    I wonder how they'd feel about guitars or basketball, to name a few variations?

    Probably didn't take long for the fun police to remove those.

    Probably no sitting on railings, there's a large pedestrian bridge and a lot of high viewpoints there.

    Since it doesn't look like the middle-second row, I'd say means no sitting on a fence/wall (would standing be OK?). :biggrin:
