Warning Note

Lovely note from the bit of Cotham/Kingsdown which may become a Residents Parking Zone. Clearly the motorcyclists who live here have some problem with vehicles blocking access, and have resorted to signage.

This one does not make any direct threats, merely threatens the superstitious.
The wrath of the ancients will fall upon
your head, your shoelaces will not stay tied.
Rabid squirrels will invade your home.
Food in your refrigerator will mysteriously
spoil. Your vehicle will start making
that expensive knocking sound again and
No-one will talk to you at parties.
Subtle, yet containing enough threats to discourage most people. Except, wait a minute -Bristol doesn't have a rabies problem. A quick search reveals that the original came from abroad.
