[ I sincerely apologize for the dismal technical quality of these images. After an unobserved water ingress into our basement, thousands of negatives and slides were irrevocably damaged. There was confluence of grains due to emulsion swelling and ingrowth of mould which was impossible to remove non-destructively. A few images could be partially salvaged by dual scanning (visible/infrared) and processing in SilverFast or VueScan, but there was tremendous loss of image quality. Nevertheless, I like these signs... ]

Technically, this is not a sign, and, with regard to content, it is rather subversive than silly, but I hope it will be tolerated in this thread. :ph34r:

No picking up mushrooms for personal safety...only in China. Not only Chinglish but only sensical within the Chinese eat/drink culture.

Stop Climbing the Cliff!!!

One of the Chinese tourists who passed me when I took the photo explained to me that the Chinese Government assumes that the Chinese behave in the worst possible way, hence the somewhat strange wording.

"Caring for the scenery and letting fly your green mood"  :wacko:

In Chinese, Chinglish, Japanese and Korean.

 

Other then that, I'd say that is a very good sign!

I saw this directive eons ago, just off Whitehall in London. How silly it is may be debatable.
