Yield to Peds

Oh, brutal! We've gone from pedicels and pedipalps to pediculus. Not promising!!! Personally, I'm rather curious about the sign above referring to Brunette and Fraser- maybe blondes have to yield to brunettes? ( How can you tell I'm from out of town- OK if you must know, from the EAST!!)

Funny!

Thanks for making fun out of boring signs!! But really, increasingly I have to stop of interpret what signs and abbreviations really mean. A legacy of texting....

Further Possibilities

-pedarian (A political rank in ancient Rome. If you don't yield, it's a quick, involuntary trip to the Colosseum for you.)

-peddler / pedlar (Not sure about traffic, but yielding to peddlers is bad shopping policy.)

-pediculus (One of several kinds of lice. This would be a pretty lousy interpretation.)

-pedimane (Opossum. You'll be waiting for a while.)
