    The upper sing means no firework!

  5. The Moderate Voice Says:

    Signs, Signs, Everywhere A Sign

    But are these truly necessary (even if, as the comments suggest, one of them means something differen than it may seem at first glance…)

  6. Bill Belew Says:

    That’s a crackup…I wish I could swipe one of those signs and attach it to the front door of my house or some other very conspicuous place.

    Very funny.

    No Car Bombs

    This is a crackup. And I wishI could get credit fortaking the picture. RatherIfoundit atwww.asiapundit.com This is posted outside the Great Hall of the People, which sits across from the Forbidden city. …

    Bill, good luck with that.

    Roy, thanks for the comment. Are you sure that it means no fireworks? No one I have talked to in Beijing really has a clue what it means. “No sirens” and “no transporting explosives” seemed reasonable guesses. But I’ve also heard “no transporting Christmas trees” and “no poultry in cars.”
    No fireworks signs, which they also have in Shanghai, mostly look like this or this.
