"Must Use Crosswalk When Transporting Giant Roman Candles"

Ever since I pretty much gave up on uploading photos via Blogger, I have really gotten into Flickr. Flickr allows you to not only upload and store pictures, they have photo pools, or groups, that Flickr users can submit their photos to. Groups can be in any range of categories, from dogs to bicycles, police cars to squircles (circular forms cropped to square images), clouds to clowns.

But so far, my favorite group is called Stick Figures In Peril. This group is comprised of photos of stick-figure warning signs, those signs which were designed to be understood regardless of the viewer's native language. What makes this group funny is not just the signs themselves, but the photo captions and the comments accompanying the photos. The title of this blog refers to this sign.
