Watch for falling ice. There’s a lot of these signs. Well, you know, in Canada there are. I’ve never seen anyone struck by falling ice, but there you have it, it must happen. Otherwise what for the signs?
What have I seen people struck by? Bird crap. Snowballs. A car (yes, actually). A baseball. A volleyball. A tennis ball. A golf ball. A shoe. A rotten potato, left in a pile of compost.
So, really, in terms of my experience, we should have signs for all of those things first, and then move on to falling ice. Now, the argument is probably that being hit by falling ice is a lot more fatal and violent and avoidable than those other things, but that just sounds too much like logic.
Maybe I should start an anti-falling ice sign campaign, against the propaganda the government spreads to hide the truth. Balls are the real danger. I’m going to march right down to Parliament with a truck-sized sign, that says, “Watch out for balls,” and expose this charade for what it really is. The people deserve to know the truth.
