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.

Who can forget the fervor or excitment that was felt in the US..

And they’ll be talking about that as long as they keep asking if we throw shrimp on the barbie or drink fosters..

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.

And lets not forget this big boy on Coppins Crossing Rd.

It’s no ‘Palmerston Cheese”

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

Somewhere in Gungahlin is STOP with Voldemort below 🙂

Who can forget the fervor or excitment that was felt in the US when they discovered a certain golen arched themed burger place and thier “MYass” sign

I never get tired of “STOP….hammer time!”

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”
