This was probably funny about ten years ago. The joke has worn thin now.

No right? wtf?

However, it is funnier in context. I miss father ted.

"If you don`t get why people keep replying with `careful now` you shouldn`t be laughing at this post"

Actually, the fact that it`s just a scene from a TV show makes it less funny.

The best part of that sign is that no one really knows what side your on.

Protesting something? Here`s your sign.
Protesting a protest? Here`s your sign.
Undecided? Here`s your sign.
Just want to confuse the hell out of people by using it random spots where nothing is happening? Here`s your sign.

This is from an Irish sitcom called `Father Ted` about 3 misfit priests living on a remote Island, one of the best TV shows ever made (check it out on Amazon/Ebay).

This is from an episode where they are ordered by the Bishop to protest a new movie being released but they don`t want to annoy the locals and also don`t know what the film is about so they create two protest signs:
"Down with this sort of thing"
and "Careful now!"

How obnoxious.

You`re basically saying "Down with this sort of thing" is not funny at all, and the only reason it`s funny is because it was on TV where you are.

Even without the reference, it was funny. If you happen to know the origin, good for you. I didn`t know, but I sure do know I found it funnier when I thought it was original and witty.

You`re right.

If you don`t get why people keep replying with "careful now" you shouldn`t be laughing at this post

For some reason I guessed it would be this before the page even loaded.

It`s from Father Ted, a classic British sitcom.
