Ah the temptation


(Press the alarm button for at least 5 seconds)

This is so tempting! Nowhere did it say anything about only pressing it in case of emergency!

Any other such signs you have encountered?

"Soft verge" on U.K. motorways, knowing that verge is a penis in French!


Dare I add that if there are many soft verges in England, there's only hard ones in Scotland!!

There even seems to be a song of that name, by "Half man half biscuit" -- I dare say that man must have spilled some of his tea!
