Call ’em as you see ’em

A friend recently tipped us to a bold new campaign in England: call out the enemies in our midst via small but straightforward signage.

Dangerous Tree. Please do not enter.
Dangerous Tree. Please do not enter.

Take this case as an example. A despicable English tree was cordoned off with traffic cones and metal bars, and given the Scarlet Letter via a sign simply stating: “Dangerous Tree. Please do not enter.”

Can you imagine a simpler yet straight-to-the-point message to give our youth? Bravo to the bold souls in the UK who experimented with so brazen a tactic. Undoubtedly, the sequestered trees have begun to fight back more vehemently than ever… simply because violence is the only language trees know.
