Signs, Signs: Falling coconuts

@ mirandablue
Stroll here at your own risk, or wear a helmet.
I walked under the coconut trees, no coconut fell on my head. I was lucky.  I guess somebody wasn't, so they put up this sign.
Seen at the grounds of Punta Bulata beach resort.

i like this sign a lot. there's humor and at the same time warning. i do wonder however, if there was anyone hurt by falling coconut recently?

A sign not often seen! And it looks well-weathered too, so it's been around awhile! Very interesting photo!

that sign looks like it has been there for a very long time. and I bet still, some idiot tries to shake the tree.

That's a great sign.

I love that so much!! Funny when they have to warn us to have common sense -- my post this week is the same kind of warning. Happens everywhere nowdays!!

Inger-M said...

Nice! And I would probably stay out of that area :-)

Great shot!
He he he! Yes, you'd better wear a helmet if you want to go for a walk among the coconut trees;o)

Have a nice and happy weekend****

You've been warned alright. I always stay away from coconut trees, with or without signs. More than the physical pain, it's the embarrassment - and the jokes that follow - that I cannot take! hahaha.

Always nice to get a warning, then you can make your own choice.

I love the sign. I bet a coconut could ruin your whole day if it hit your head.

If a coconut will fell on your head then it means you didn't take this warning sign by heart.

I joined in, sis! =)

Hah! Haven't seen any warning for falling buko that I remember, but it's something I am aware of. What a fun sign for the meme.

I never had one fall on me, but I used to take a pole and knock them down. Then we kids would throw then against the ground trying to break into them. Love the sign. I cannot imagine how it would feel to have one hit me in the head. OUCH!

What a cool sign! But very appropriate I shall say as I've heard the noise of falling coconuts right beside me... :-)))
