They need to get back to the Book ...

Isaiah 40:31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

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.]

A public body with a sense of humour??

Who writes this rubbish?

How, exactly, does a camera enforce traffic?

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.)

Battery's not included?

OK, so where do I plug my battery shaver in?

[At a Travelodge near you.]

Answers on another postcard, please.

Thinking caps on again. What is this sign saying?

[Found by Clare, I know not where.]

And the winner is ...

Time to close competition number one. As with all good competition conclusion speeches, "The quality of the entries was extremely high and the judges found it very hard to come to a conclusion. They would like to thank all the entrants and are disappointed that you could not all win etc, etc, blah, blah ..."

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!"
