    Signs that really make you look

    Saw this on a back road near Kamala on Phuket.
    Not sure what it exactly means but I stayed on the other side of the road while I took the picture,
    Can anyone help with a meaning?

    It looks like the road in Samui going between Chaweng and Lamai...

    Is it?

    Certainly looks like it with the boulder down the bottom that juts ominously out.

    sign-doctored?

    Lost In Translation Thai Style - Beware Of The Prick In Front Of You Road Sign | Stickboy Daily

    The has to be one of the funniest examples of signs that got Lost In Translation I’ve ever seen.
    The Thai says “Beware of falling rock ahead”…. the translation isn’t anything close, is it?

    Updated: Okay so the sign wasn’t lost in translation after all… A second photo taken at a different angle reveals it actually says Brick and someone added a bit of yellow paint to alter the B.
    Thinking someone had screwed up and wrote Prick was kinda funny though.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    That's a bloody big brick all the same - 555.

    I had a mate on the back of a scooter the first time we rode past it on the day of the international triathlon.
    I hadn't ridden a scoot for a while and he'd never been on the back of a bike, so you can imagine he was pretty well cacking himself for the first few Ks.
    Gotta admit I was a bit concerned too when I saw 10 gazilion witches hats blocking half the road and more MIB than I've ever seen manning every part of the road.

    Turned out we did the island from top to bottom and many roads in between.
    He reckons it was th hilight of his trip.
    The girls didn't think so when we got back to them 2 hours late coz we got lost.

    a TRIATHLON on Samui... couldn't think of a better place... what a great place for an after party...

    Lucky you hadn't been drinking at a bar when you passed all those MIB Obes... weaving a slalom course thru the hats... 555

    It was pretty funny actually. Picked up the scooter and the obligatory skid lids that are about as useful as a - well you know what I mean.
    Quickly decided the cranium stood a better chance of surviving without a bowl on my head, so left them behind.

    Took off and the first time I had to stop, the scoot stalled, or at least I initially thoght it had. Made the frantic restart process all the while thinking they'd hired me a dud.
    Quickly realised the thing shuts itself down when no throttle is used. Said to the mate, what a great feature considering it would only get about 80mpg without that feature = 555

    It was our first trip to Samui and one of the major differences from Phuket was the lack of interest shown by the MIB towards people like me scooting around without a stack hat on.
    They didn't seem to give a rats and believe me we passed more of them than I could believe would actually work and live on Samui.

    When we left Thailand after 1 week in Samui and 2 in Patong, the Mrs said she was over Patong, but would go back to Samui tomorrow and I have to agree with her !!

    Be fined 1,000 baht

    Perhaps this is why people prefer to run red lights in Thailand:
