I've been snapping pix of signs since we started cruising nearly 15 years ago. Whenever we see one that makes us giggle, or ponder, or scratch our heads, whether it be a road sign or an advertisement, I take a picture. Do I make David stop the car or even turn around sometimes? Absolutely!Here's our collection of signs from our recent inland trip in South Africa and Swaziland. Hope you enjoy.
We figured no drugs or weapons, but no snares, traps or catapults? Fortunately, we had left ours behind. Whew! Another catastrophe avoided. (At Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary)
Does this mean beware of feral children? They can be vicious at times? OR Children beware … because that woodsy background looks like a Hansel/Gretel scenario waiting to happen. (On the road to Shaymoya Lodge)
A hippo on the highway? Wouldn't that just spoil your day? (On the R40 highway heading south to Nelspruit)
Good to know who your neighbors are. (at Rest Camp at Mlilwane)
Were we hunting for the Big 5, or were they hunting for us? (Mkhuze Wildlife Sanctuary)
This conjures up an image of close encounters with wildlife, doesn't it? (at iMfolozi Game Reserve)
If we hoot, we sound like owls! If we honk, we sound like geese. If we toot, we sound like … well, never mind. (at Battlefields Country Lodge exit)
Good thing we left our foils and sabers at home, too! (on the highway between Pongola and the Swazi border)
After about the tenth sign and several sightings, we started to take this seriously. (near every river in Swaziland and South Africa)
Yup, yield for insects. Dung beetles and elephant poo have the right of way. (Hluhluwe Game Reserve)

Oh, yeah … Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits! If you forgot first thing this morning, it appears you can say Stibbar, stibbar, stibbar (rabbits backwards) as the last words you say on the first day of the month. Not sure how this works, but you can give it a try.
