public signage makes me giggle sometimes. There are signs, admonitions, rules and explanations everywhere. Not that they're necessarily bad signs to have. They just seem so very many of them, and so fussy. Today, it's this sign on the beach, studiously pointing out the obvious.


@nalohopkinson That's a great one. Here's one from Boston, warning that trees have limbs which are generally above your head. Good to know!

@rivervox :) I just keep imagining that there's a Vancouver Department of Signs that exists solely to dream and create more signage to post everywhere.

@rivervox @nalohopkinson In both cases, you just know people complained to City Hall, demanding their right to be utterly oblivious with no consequences.
