Photos: Stick figures in peril
Who wants to see some stick figures in peril?
While studying abroad in Europe several years ago, one of my favorite things to photograph were warning signs with stick figures. For some reason they're a lot more prominent outside of the United States, and in many cases, warnings of death, dismemberment, or other forms of bodily harm are made amusing when presented in the form of faceless figures. A Flickr group for such signs has been knocking about since 2004. It's accumulated nearly 14,000 shots, many of which are outlandish or otherwise far funnier than they should be given the intended warning.
