The bad news is that 2 of my friends have been hit by cars while riding their bicycles in the past week. The past week!
The good news is that they both walked away from the accidents without much more than bruises. Still, apparently it’s gaijin-hunting season out there! I’m a pretty cautious cyclist (read: slow) but I’ll still be sure to be extra careful.
With that in mind, this sign seemed quite appropriate on my way home today. I know it’s supposed to imply that speeding on your bicycle might cause pedestrian accidents, but to me, it looks like that guy on the right is dancing while his insides explode. Or like he’s flying towards the bicyclist while wearing a red hedgehog!
What non-standard interpretation do you see?
Also, in less doom and destruction news, we’re going to be hosting a giveaway here on the blog shortly! Details tomorrow! Exciting!
I love warning signs- they’re either completely dire or unintentionally hilarious. Or both! I’m glad your friends are ok- stay safe out there!!
Yeah, this one is both completely dire AND unintentionally hilarious! I love it 😀
Beware of sleeping bicyclist (Slam Dunk reference)
Must go fast in order to catch up to rocket-propelled humans!
Haha, that dude totally is rocket propelled!
