Any oldie but a goody in Cook.

Cook sign

I think I was 12 the first time I saw someone make the light alteration to signage around Cook which had me chortling to myself for years.

Now Pommy Bastard too has enjoyed the resulting mirth and sent it in.

Form One Planet.

It’s dumb, but it gives me a little giggle every time I see it.

There used to be billboard on the side of road past Williamsdale that said Flick. Quite popular.

In Ainslie last year I saw “STOP. Collaborate and Listen”.

In addition to “hammer time” and “collaborate and listen”, I have seen “in the name of love” painted on stop signs in Canberra.

Always liked the the skiing kangaroo sign and the “Form One Planet” painted on the road.

Captain Cook Cres often gets the same treatment.

Like a good fart joke, it never gets tired. Although, I must admit, I prefer the Cock Shops sign.

I used to get a healthy chortle over someone pre-cursoring the Bruce sign with “they call me”
