Signs around Lerwick

We sure had a lot of fun with the different signs in and around Lerwick, on the rest of the Island and even in Scotland and England.  I suppose when UK folks visit us, they are equally amused by our signage, terminology and the names we have for everything here. 
Here are just a few of the ones that "the American's" found amusing.  I think we amused our UK friends far more than their signs amused us, we are all a bit different.  (big smile)

Apparently Lerwick residents abhor littering as much as we do, but without the photo.........Dunna Chuck Bruck seems like a nice name for a large meal. 

And here's Garrett, clearly violating the sign's directive of NOT obstructing the life saving appliance. 

Actually, this one concerned me a wee bit........were we supposed to pay the machine and then display some portion of ourselves to it?  Or were we being paid to display something entirely different?  Thank heavens Susan and Suzanne were there to help us with this one. 
You will notice the exceedingly lovely Floatel in the background, it's a very large floating hotel for the oil line workers that work on the Island.  Charming, isn't it?  (it's the giant grey box on the left) 

Back to more serious things in my next post..........
