Is this actually pathetic? 13:34 - Dec 1 with 977 viewssparks

Or is it, in reality, an indication that childishness continues to lurk in the corners of most decent people- which is a good thing?

Also stolen many times is the sign for the delightfully named Minge Lane in Upton-upon-Severn

The local souvenir shop sells a passable replica.....saves all the hassle of spanners/angle grinder I find

I am more worried for the person who considers it “a sad state of affairs”. God knows what would happen to them if someone ever put a traffic cone on top of a statue locally.

Or, indeed, made a traffic cone "stegosaurus" with a parked car.

I make it clear that is not something I have done as an adult.... But...

Just outside Cheltenham lies the village of Uckington. They've had to install a specially adapted name sign on the main road, yet people still manage to squeeze an "F" or "L" on the front. Every time.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

Y'know, Mr G...it would never occur to me (or many others ) to squeeze the letter L on the front of that sign

Letter F however.....

Possibly the "L" was put there by locals, to block other additions ...

In 2010, villagers in the Dorset hamlet of Sh1tterton got so fed-up with their sign being stolen they put up a stone version.

On my way back through Hull I ended up driving through Wet Wang

MrsN was not as amused as I was, so we didn’t get to stop for a photo..

I will now openly admit to nicking a Stanley Road sign in the build-up to Weller’s album.

In Oulton Broad rather than Woking, admittedly.

There is a place not far out of Barcelona called Cunit.

Trying to get a photo of the motorway gantry sign out of the hire car window was harder than you might think.

Oh and along the same lines, in Northumberland there is a village called Shilbottle. The sign often gets changed to Shi.tbottle.

Cu nter and the Furka pass in the Alps often have people getting phtoos.

Bapsfontien in South Africa is my personal favourite.
