Beware flying motorbikes - and other road signage
I am using the Ruby as daily driver at the moment, to get some miles into the re-fettled engine (many thanks to Paul Lawrence!).

Stopped to take pictures of a poppy field near home and then noticed the signage. I always think of the Royal Corps of Signals motorcycle display team whenever I see the lower one.

As for the upper one, it looks to me like someone sitting on the bonnet of a car drawn by a child - with a pole out the front that is prodding a somewhat startled horse...

Anyone else got silly interpretations of road signs?


Since you ask, this is the poppy field...
You mean, like these?

Someone stole the direction sign for Fingeringhoe. It's just down the road from where live. It was abbreviated on the sign to F'inghoe.

Not a road sign, I'll admit, but an old favourite....

I may have recounted before but my sons scout group, which had an envious sign collection, coveted a stencil  displayed in a country public convenience frequented by tourists, many of whom were Asian. It depicted a person squatting on their haunches on a toilet seat, with a red ban bar drawn trhough it. Someone beat them to it.
Since we have now reached "toilet-level" humour, here is one I photographed some years ago in Shanghai:

The Town House in the village I used to live in ha sign that read "Gentlemen left through the passage".
