Signs of the Times: Stick Figures in Action

I’m a big fan of stick figure signs, especially when the stick figures have a personality. While never having been electrocuted — just minor tingling when I tried to unplug my hair dryer with a wet hand — I’m guessing the second sign is a more accurate depiction of what it’s like to touch a high voltage power box.

Sign One (sorry about the blurriness)

This stick figure could easily be on a caution sign as someone climbing, dancing, falling off a swing etc.

Sign Two

Now here is someone that accurately reflects (I think) being electrocuted.

    • Yes, it’s a bit disconcerting. I was just talking to someone today about Australian warning signs (like beware of snakes on the beach) and I said, “When Australians warn you about something, you better listen.” Since you guys seem to take things more in stride, and are more realistic. 🙂

    • The second sign is near my parents’ house and it freaks me out every time I visit. I practically put police tape around it when I’m out walking with my kids. Thanks for the comment, my friend! 🙂
