    Signs of the times

    What does this sign mean?

    Cycle lane pedestriansToday, I learned it means:

    GET OUT OF MY F*ING WAY YOU C*NT. LOOK AT THE F*KING SIGN. GET OUT OF MY WAY. C*NT!

    Sometimes during lockdown I put my coffee in my travel mug.

    A (pedantic) note on King Coot

    twitter.com/furtherfi…

    The Community of Coots are too ornery and independent to want anything to do with queens, let alone kings. In times of crisis, a coot emerges from the need for collective action. That coot is called Marengo.

    In the Elder Noise, Marengo means the Caller of Ways. The legend/folk memory of the Flight from Harvest Holm tells how the coot Marengo sacrificed his life to lead the Coots to the safety of quiet waters.
