Duck and Cover!

We will now spend some time trying to figure out the language of safety signs. While some are very easy to understand, like stop signs - some are not very easy to translate. Our friends down at Safenow.Org have compiled a wonderful list of translations for a variety of safety signs.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Use your flashlight to lift the walls right off of you!

If you've become a radiation mutant with a deformed hand,
remember to close the window. No one wants to see that.

If you are sprayed with an unknown substance,
stand and think about it instead of seeing a doctor.

After exposure to radiation it is important to consider
that you may have mutated to gigantic dimensions: watch your head.

I understand those. They make perfect sense. But what about these?




Can you help me translate?

#2 is most definately "Do not fart while laying under odd shaped objects" That is perfectly clear...don't see why i'd have to 'translate' that one! :-)

1. Shuffling by a door sideways has been known to help heal injured arms and legs.

2. Beware of falling Oklahomas; they might vaporize your legs.

3. Your fire wings are only for use while flying. If your legs are propelling you on the ground already, why give away your demonicity?

1. Demonstrates the agent art of entering a door like a ninja.

2. *Dee solved this one*

3. Running won't save you from fire's evil talons.

1. Rub butt against door before kicking it open.

2. Farting a lot when under rubble helps to passify you.

3. Eating chili before a 10 mile jog is not advised.
