Last Call- That Pictogram's a Little Specific Edition

Road signs are usually designed to warn of danger. In some instances, they can also provide instruction on how to dispatch that wealthy dowager in order to collect the inheritance.

    Aw, for cryin' out loud, they could have made the damned alligator look less happy. I mean, really.

    Well, there's no slash through the picture, so they're saying it's ok to careen down this hill in a wheelchair to your watery, gator-y death.

      And still, some insist that warning labels should be text-free.

        Why shouldn't they be? I mean, this one's crystal clear:

          "No diving onto top of open hood while someone imitating a flamingo is looking under the hood, at night"
          The dot on that exclamation point is the exact same size as the guys head.

    That was nice of them to try and warn the alligators about the dangers of careening wheelchair-bound people. I know what kind of danger they can be – my grandma's a vehicular menace on her scooter, mowing down all in her path.

    This looks like a place to post such a sign!

    I always wondered, is it ok to run over the immigrants if the mom isn't wearing a skirt, if there's no dad, or if it's a little boy instead of a little girl?

      How about if they're not running? Or if they happened to be on bicycles? Or in the back of an El Camino?

    Also, why are they warning us of a man opening an umbrella?

      James May once interviewed Margaret Calvert, who, along with a colleague, created many of Great Britain's road signs.
      He asked her this question. She said that she hadn't noticed until the signs were up and people pointed it out.
      May tried to draw on the end of a spade, to make it more apparent that it wasn't an umbrella.
      That went predictably.

    I always laugh at the following sign-

    Its like an invite for "Death Race 2000"

      I'm still waiting for some sue-happy interest group to make them change it to "developmentally challenged children."
      What? The sign isn't using "slow" in that context? Huh. Carry on, then.

      Oh, I remember Slow Children! I always though Pal Shazar was kinda hot. Wait, what? You're not referring to the band?
