    Mr. Ed ruined it for everybody.

  6. Droll not Troll | 5:10 am |

    Anyone horsing around here must have big bronze balls.

  7. Droll not Troll | 5:14 am |

    In other words, don’t be a horse’s arse!

    The worst part is, this is not a machine translation. The Chinese text contains no “please”.

    “Warm tips” is clear, that’s what the Chinese text translates to word by word (or “warm prompt”, as some other Engrish does it).

    As for “no horsing”, I guess they had no space for “It is strictly forbidden to (?) the horse”. And what’s in (?) place anyway? Ride? How can you RIDE a bronze horse?! Mount? That brings unwanted associations…

    @alexmagnus 0559. Well, at least you would be “sitting on your bronze”.

    @alexmagnus: If someone “mounted” the horse, that could be regarded as statuary rape.

    ‘Tis the bronze horse of a great war hero.

    “Ow!!! What the hell was that???”

    Next sign to the left (out of camera angle):

    “We didn’t say “No Ducking” “.

    @Pete. 0635 The rider has merely hopped off, to crap on the pigeons.

    For a change.

    Actually, from hhere it looks something like:

    FO’ DUCKING

  15. Marum | 7:43 am |

    Actually. It is not a horse,but a Unicorn. When the rider tried to climb on, it gave him such a surprise, that he vaulted clean over the saddle, into the creek below.

    As a result, he was well, truly, and completely, ducked.

    Is there any horsing around?

  17. Droll not Troll | 1:19 am |

    @alexmagnus:
    Steal the horse?
    ???
    Profit!
    There’s money in scrap metal.
