Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

This is one of my favorite warning signs. Whenever I'm out on my pedestrian travels and I see it, it makes me smile. Why? I'm not a sadistic, morbid fellow. But the iconography is just so kinetic, remiscent of the travails of Mr. Bill or a Charles Addams cartoon.

Safety signs are everywhere, but ignored. Surely, though, pranksters could have a lot of fun with them. Here's the sales site where I plundered my image.

And finally, in the immortal words of Dave Barry, "Wouldn't 'Crush Hazard' be a great name for a rock band?"

Virtual Memories--remember when Eddie Arnold would climb the phone pole to make a call in GREEN ACRES....

I always suspected that Arnold was a phreaker.

Freddie--a splendid contribution to "universal" iconography!
