"COAT ON! TRUCKS CROSSING"

.

Believe it or not, I saw this at a construction site next to a busy intersection in Jerusalem a few days ago,  when the temperature was 32 C.

LOL?   Or, oi veh--where's the Municipality's English proofreader?!

Perfect for Lesley's "signs, signs,  a weekly meme of interesting, funny, ridiculous and unexplainable signs (in Canada)  and for Toby's hilarious "A Time of the Signs"  in Israel.

Wow, that's really funny. Don't know how Caution became Coat On . . . quite a stretch!

That's an original sign. Great find!

oi veh indeed!

Dina said...

And the intended word is . . .
CAUTION!

But this sign should be a word of caution for sign painters.

I was trying to figure out what they meant by Coat On. Too funny!

Sorry for my late visit.
I am envisioning a pedestrian putting his jacket or coat until the trucks have crossed, then removing it to walk on!!
thank you for your laugh of the day :)
