Australian Road Signs: Offensive or Practical?

http://screen.yahoo.com/australian-road-signs-offensive-or-practical-30158705.html

In Southern Australia, debate rages on about whether these cheeky road safety billboards are appropriate for the eyes of travelers. Some feel that the messages are offensive and degrading. Others point to the fact that they've actually been working and are making rural roads safer. So, will these messages stay up for good?

If this needs to go to the Lounge, will do.

9. I believe that too much causes "wankers doom"

That was a popular insult in Uk when I was growing up.

8. The W anchor one needs

another rebus clue - one for "bleeding."


Don't Drive Like a

Don't drive like a bleeding wanker. That's more powerful, I think.
