Hilarious signs

I pass by this sign when I walk to campus, and I'm always struck by how apologetic it is. The sidewalk is torn up for about 15 feet, and they make such a big deal out of it.

Same goes for the buses--this is the kind of bus I use in Leeds. It's not as funny as the ones in Bath that used to say "Sorry, not in service at the moment." But still, you'd never see an American bus apologizing...

The Brits still use these non-PC signs, too. I don't think we're allowed to say "Men at work" in the States, post-feminist movement.

Last night I saw one of these road signs for the first time--it cracked me up! I love the cane and the fact they're all hunched over! It's so wrong, and so funny...
