Why?

I agree. It makes your Violin all messy.

If you do, the local police will shanghai you for the chain-gang.

Or for organ donations. That way you will live on, just in separate geographic locations.

@DnT, 5.01 am:

Liar. That sign IS on the bridge.

The original sign was too long.
This sign is an a-bridge-ment of the original.

The true meaning of the Chinese text is just as puzzling. It says: “this is not the direction to go up the bridge”. I guess it’s a way to keep the sign-makers busy after all useful signs are done.

Maybe this garden uses inverse logic. To find your way, find the road that does not have a sign saying it’s the wrong way.
