July Theme Day - A "No ...." Sign

Shot with Olympus E520
Can you read this sign? I'm not surprised, we've lost the hang of understanding this type of . What it says is "No Gluttony". It is the Golden Boy of Pye Corner, set up to mark the point where the Great Fire of London stopped in 1666. They believed that the cause of the fire was the sin of gluttony, so this statue was made "prodigious fat" as a warning to us all. Says a lot about the changing trends of obesity, that he was considered fat, doesn't it?

My alternative choice was shot in Greenwich, and shown here.

Hi Ham,

The bees are back in Brookville, Ohio. I hope for the rest of the year at least. I even got one on my Better Blog Writing post today. LOL

I see you found an adorable No sign for our July Theme Day. Reminds me of the little ivory Japanese fat dolls.

Isn't it almost funny to think of adult people scurrying around their communities taking pictures of signs. And if somebody had asked what that is all about and you said a sign with "no" on it, they might... well. It is kind of funny.
