Festive Friday: Warning Signs


Nothing here today, folks: a smallish ice storm keeps me trapped at home with smallish offspring. But if you are bored, check out this nifty site .... and email me your clever signs [jeffreyjeromecohen [at] gmail [dot] com] . I'll post them as the day progresses.

Geoffrey Chaucer said...

Liza said...

Ooh, I like the mermaid one -- bravo MKH!

Dr. Virago said...

Ooh, MKH, love the Dr. Who one!

dtk said...

Karl, you *sooo* beat me to it!

Karl Steel said...

DTK: Given your love of kankedort, I would have bet Chaucer beat you to it!

(And Chaucer's, by the way, wins hands down so far as I'm concerned. I love the poetry of Eileen's signs, but the juxtaposition of image and word in the Chaucer, and how it invokes the impossible word, is perfect.)

here is another medieval (think: anti-mendicant) sign. If someone can find a disembodied arm, there's a Beowulf sign to be made...

It is funny how each sign revealed the personality of its maker so perfectly. And I say that about each and every one.

Er, I'm afraid of what that means for me. That I can't decide whether to be silly or serious?

Jeffrey J Cohen said...

DrV: Signs point to ... yes.

And note the indecisiveness within your comment about your indecisiveness.

Liza said...

Ooh, me next! That I have a penchant for whatever in the way of fabliau the world has to offer me?

Jeffrey J Cohen said...

That you pay close attention in my class and have a wicked sense of humor and a desire to be analyzed.

Liza said...

Or, I really like your analyses -- that would explain (1) and (3).

So clearly this all means I'm a geek who is not only not particularly worried that I'm geek, but who will also go out of her way to be as geeky as possible.

In case the signs don't prove it, I've been scouring the internet for nearly 30 minutes trying to find an adequate "no mearcstepende here" or "please disarm your monster" icon, Karl.

Dr. V -- Yay! Someone else who knows my geeky references!
