Strange t-shirt

I saw a guy in the supermarket this evening wearing a t-shirt saying the following:

– Children beginning with school
– Escuela enpezandos con los niños

I hope the Spanish reads better than the English, but it’s hardly a great advert for education beginning at school.

For some odd reason, it reminded me of the sign painted repeatedly on the cycle path parallel to the West Side Highway. It reads as follows:


(Peds is short for pedestrians, btw.) The lines have a bit of space in between, and given that the instructions are written on the ground, I’m not sure whether to read it as "Yield to pedestrians" or as "Pedestrians to yield". I think it’s the former, but it’s quite an important distinction.

Better safe than sorry, I’d say!
