Sign of the Times

Oh how I wish I'd had my camera on the way back from Poole last week. On a very narrow road at the bottom of a very steep hill in Cerne Abbas is an electronic sign telling you if traffic is approaching because you can't see it owing to a very sharp bend.

Last week there was a sign in front of it which read:

Sign not working

BTW Have you spotted that Diarmuid Gavin is appearing in Famous,Rich and Jobless next week?

Brilliant. The bit about the alternative noticeboard is just the icing on the cake!

Aaaaaarrrrghhhh! The pointlessness of it all!!! It drives me insane. Notices on on hot taps warning that the water might be hot; 'serving suggestions' with margarine illustrated by a picture of the stuff being spread on bread and, stupidest of all, on a large bag of peanuts I bought for the birds - 'WARNING, MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF NUTS.'

Hahahahahahahaha the verification word was 'pronk' - feels good to say.

Hi VP - I thought of you when I saw that sign!! I just saw in the RT that Diremutt is on TV again, he is looking increasingly pasty-faced. I'd be inclined not to watch except for the fact that the gorgeous Larry Lamb is in it too.

Nigel, I'm with you. I was particularly enraged when driving on the M27 at the weekend one of those enormous annoucement signs saying "Don't hog the middle lane"! The guy in front of me clearly couldn't read! I find the visual clutter of all these signs distracting and the constant admonishments to do this, that and the other totally ridiculous.

Hi Carrie, I have a feeling that pronking and stotting is something that stags do when they are mating. Or is that stonking and protting...

VP said...

Arabella you're so right that sign is right up my street :)

Here's an added incentive to watch - Diarmuid cheated and checked into an hotel with a hidden credit card because he couldn't sleep owing to 6 kids and 9 puppies on the rampage at all hours (source: AOL news feed today)

WV says minga!!!!!!!!!!!
