    I pass this sign every day and thought it deserved a mention. Clearly the upper half was written by someone other than the bottom half. :D

    There’s a railway bridge that goes over the M25 near Heathrow with “GIVE PEAS A CHANCE” painted on it.:dk:

    LOL, I saw that for the first time yesterday - it's been ages since I have been round that section. How random!

    That's reasonably likely to be intentional though.

    Yes, I agree that looked intentional and was spelled correctly.

    My thought as I looked at the bridge itself was 'that's a shame, lovely brick built bridge... why couldn't they have done it to the concrete casting a couple of hundred yards further on?'

    Somone recently told me it was a protest against GM farming. Possibly they are right.

    It used to just say "PEAS", then some wag added the extra bit a few years ago.
