    Link: Most Polite Protest Sign Yet - Not only are these rabble-rousing protesters polite, but they`re smart: think of how much use this sign will get!

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

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

    You`re right.

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

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

    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.

    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!"

    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.

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