Kudos on inventive signage. Although… I might have been so distracted laughing, I’d have wrecked.
The craze for installing doctored comedy signs has reached small-town Norway, with an art collective in Ørje on the Swedish border installing a pair of zebra crossing signs inspired by Monty Python’s Ministry of Silly Walks.
The sign, designed to encourage people to use a “silly walk” from the classic Monte [sic] Python sketch has the backing of the local council in the Ørje. But the notoriously bureaucratic Norwegian Public Roads Administration is not so amused.
The art group said it was just for fun. I bet the Swedes think so.
And yes, we know Norway banned the movie “Life of Brian” back when it came out due to blasphemy and that Sweden then started advertising the movie as “the movie so funny the Norwegians banned it.”
Don’t worry. You don’t have to go look for it. Here’s the famous sketch!
