Signs of the Times

While on vacation this month the following signs caught my eye.

The first one, the white sign in the background (click for a larger image) says "no tress passing". My dictionary defines a "tress" to be "A long lock or ringlet of hair." Does that mean that we can't pass hanks of hair to each other on the beach? The sign in the foreground does manage to spell "trespassing" correctly, with only three esses.


The next one shows a complete and utter communication failure. It doesn't look like an invisible fence to me! Or maybe I'm just hallucinating the fence. The dog, however, does appear to be invisible. How appropriate.


That's a fail. Just like this parking meter.
