This sign is helpfully placed at the top of a cliff. You will have to take my word for it that there is absolutely nowhere a rock could fall on you from if you can read this sign. Therefore the rocks have to drop off the eroding cliff at your feet, circle up around and fall on your head. Unfortunately climatic conditions were such that the phenomenon was not happening on the day we were there.

Psalm 37:9 but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
How do they tell if you are waiting or loitering?
[Joe, who found this in Caledonia, Ontario, Canada always thought there were only 10 commandments.]

And why do they use a pictogram of a camera that most people could not identify with? When did you last see a camera with an expanding bellows lens arrangement?
(Although, if you squint and imagine hard, you can see the profile of a dog's head with a muzzle on it's snout.)
[On a street, any town, all over the UK]

The real answer, as supplied by Prasad, was that the sign is posted on the way to a beach in the Harihareshwar, India, area. It's supposed to warn motorists of people who are so taken by the sudden appearance of the sea that they may be running towards it.
Well, THAT was obvious wasn't it?
I am going to give first place to Cal with "when dancing, beware of spontaneous decapitation ..." and a close second to Teutsch with "Help! Man stuck in triangle!"

[But perhaps it only applies in Harihareshwar, India where Prasad found this sign for sale.]

Perhaps they meant to say, "This area is now under surveillance. From time to time trespassers will be prosecuted."
[Sent in by Tanya Giannelia who spotted it on Duckworth Street, St. John's, Newfoundland]
[Nevertheless, Emily Harte made it safely back to share this with us.]

The question: What is this sign trying to say?
[Spotted by Prasad Ramamurthy who, as in all good competitions, is ineligible along with his family, relatives, employees, employers, school-friends, pets, advertising agents, laywers etc etc.]

As Liza Passanisi (who sent this one) says "I really don't know what to say."
But hey! It was seen in Tasmania .....
