It was a real road sign put there, often, in all seriousness, by the Ministry

Dead Slow

There's a town in Massachusetts called Marion, and the town line sign reads "Entering Marion".

More jokes have been made about that sign! Even a novelty song that Dr. Demento used to play. "Entering Franklin" got even more jokes.

There was a theatre in my town that had parking problems, and people were always parking in the emergency lane, despite big "No parking" signs. After awhile, I noticed the signs had been replaced by new ones that read "Don't even THINK of parking here!" They actually worked a lot better.

This isn't unusual in Oregon, but it still makes me laugh. We have a lot of diamond-shaped warning signs that just say:

ROCKS

I once saw a road sign on the way to Merimbula which said, "Road sign next 100 metres".

Love 'em. Do you think authorities keep them there for public entertainment value, long after the inappropriateness has been realised?
(Dead Slow hasn't been seen for some years. Maybe all the Live Children knocked them down)

A variation of the "Dead Slow" sign was:- SLOW
CHILDREN
you have been
warned.

There is a photo of myself and my two sisters standing underneath it pulling moronic faces.

In Prague there is a car park with the sign:- "Non-stop parking"
