WPC: Signs, both pleasant and ominous.

Some signs we see have pleasant and happy connotations, like this one from our beach walks in South Africa. It was from one of these boats that our daughter caught a 6ft Barracuda when she was just sixteen.


Just down the road is a kite surfing shop, and outside is this sign. If I’d been a lot younger, I would have tried it.


Right next door is this sign, which sounds quite ominous and could be very painful. Would you venture up those stairs to the first floor?


Talking of ominous, how about this sign at Madame Tussauds Chamber of Horrors. We actually paid good money to be frightened out of our wits. Inside are replicas of horrific instruments of torture, to be viewed amid the sounds of agonised groans and bloodcurdling screams. A new and startling innovation in one part where it’s so dark that you can’t see a hand in front of you, is to have actors in macabre make-up and costumes, lurching out from the shadowy recesses of the cells, right in front of customers as they pass. It was absolutely terrifying, and I’ve never screamed so much in my whole life. Hubby thought this was very funny.


Here is an escape sign for those who have second thoughts, and decide they’d rather not be scared witless. I didn’t see anyone taking the coward’s way out though. I suppose we all wanted to get our money’s worth.

  1. wow, you’ve turned ‘brunette’ on the paddleboard?… πŸ˜‰ you do look great, babe, but I prefer you fair-haired, we say in French ‘dame blonde’… πŸ™‚ nothing in common or to do with ‘dumb blond’! πŸ˜€

  2. I’d rather try the paddleboard. No gym for me anymore, thanks! πŸ˜†
    hahahaha! Love the warnings – ‘not suitable for pregnant women’.

  3. Ahh…Madame Tussaud’s. I remember going there once or twice and it is very frightening. Recently we went to the London Dungeon and that was terrifying. I can’t bear things leaping out in the dark at me…especially if it’s Jack the Ripper o_O Great take on the challenge Sylvia πŸ™‚
