More Japanese Subway Signs

They are having a laugh

The sign very kindly sent to me by
Jag has to be a spoof sign. I'm pretty positive the men being asked to close their legs sign that I've blogged before is real, but this one below has got to be a spoof

We heart the Japanese

Now the funnier thing about this picture is the explanation as to what the dubious looking sign is supposed to mean. Jag says:

"I am told that from left to right - it means:

1. person with injured arm
2. person holding a child
3. pregnant woman
4. person with injured leg

But when I looked at it - it seemed to convey something rather different! If it's not a hoax - then Japan can be an awfully confusing place!"

Update - D'OH I thought this was too good to be true - it definitely looks like a spoof sticker now, but the "original" the "hoax" is based on still looks very funny, see Fernando Serboncini's comments below.
