View Full Version : Banksy's Roadsigns

19th Aug 2011, 07:36
So the local authorities didn't have much of a sense of humour about Banksy's fake road sign

BBC News - No plans for new Banksy joke sign about Bristol accents (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-14574419)

So Ppruners, if you were making a fake road sign about somewhere, where would it be and what would it say?

Personally I liked the one at the Scottish border.. "Welcome to Scotland, sorry about all the sh1te you have had to drive through to get here" :O

Says it was torn down by officers. If they've got anything about them, they would have removed it very carefully, stuck it in a sealed display case & whacked it on Ebay.

Didn't the locals put up a spoof road sign at Birdlip because they were fed up with the viewpoint car park being used for dogging?

Found it. Residents remove spoof 'dogging' sign at Cotswolds beauty spot - Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/7679048/Residents-remove-spoof-dogging-sign-at-Cotswolds-beauty-spot.html)

Slasher apparently they're getting very upset about Brit tourists nicking the signs. Is it twinned with Hell in Norway?

Talking about F**k**g Austria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/*******,_Austria):

Kommandant Schmitzberger, the local police chief, also hinted at other avenues to stop what he calls "foreign criminals" from disturbing order in the village [stealing the village signs]. Regarding these "other avenues", Schmitzberger stated, "what they are, I am not at liberty to disclose, but we will not stand for the F**k**g signs being removed. It may be very amusing for you British, but F**k**g is simply F**k**g to us. What is this big F**k**g joke? It is puerile." :}:ok:

What happened to the asshole using his cellphone to take a picture of a sign from the driver's side of a car whilst on a highway in heavy traffic? :rolleyes:

(Albeit possibly at a standstill in the subsequent traffic jam ;))

Condom, Aveyron, Midi-Pyrénées, France

Not so.

Condom is in the Gers, not the Aveyron.

The Gers is in Midi-Pyrénées, but quite some way away from the Aveyron.

I have not checked all the others..........

I'd feel persecuted if I came from Wank (so to speak), therefore a ******, and was censored by PPRuNe.

Best way to deal with this? Have a friendly rugby/football match, be pulled off at half time - or have an orange quarter - and maybe rejoin in the second half.

******s, unite against this calumny. We must stop it now!
