I understand that the second (orange) placard was inspired by an actual Darwin Award recipient. Somebody actually Darwined himself rocking a machine trying to get a free Coke.

I think it's a PhotoShopped joke.

I'm not sure where it came from; just found it while browsing and saved it to my disk as it made me chuckle. [Linked Image]

"Bridge out" is a somewhat North American expression that you won't often hear in Britain, so I would guess this came from the U.S. or Canada. Either way, somebody has a pretty good handle on the way things are going, don't ya think?

Reminds me of the "warning" sign I saw in a lab once:

WARNING

DO NOT LOOK INTO LASER WITH REMAINING EYE

This kind of thing spreads though.. I once saw a TV with a stern warning not to use it in a swimming pool.... I assume they meant swimming pool area? or knowing the darwin candidates... maybe not!

Chipmunk,

They may very well mean the pool itself!

The following has become an ECN classic:
