Ceci n'est pas une Banane.
"This is not a banana".

Graffito from Norwich. V2 shows the graffito with adjacent sticker.

Many thanks to Pascal pascalg for his User Award on Grass and Wheel which is much appreciated.

Our French guests return later today; first we have to translate for the joint AGM. I have also about 200 photos from the various festivities and receptions to process so "normal service" might be resumed by this time next week Smile

Perhaps we should have this as our National Flag as England becomes more like a Banana State everyday. Wink

Ah! the famous graffiti artist Rene, I have heard he is very illusive and keeps giving the authorities the slip.
Excellent find Bill and shot.

Andy

P.S. V2 has just appeared, brilliant, peace to the banana skin.

Lovely find and beautifully presented Bill. Over a year ago I found one that said "Ceci nést pas un flamingo". I can't remember whether I uploaded it. Maybe we discovered a secret cult Wink

Rene is absolutely correct, it is a banana skin, not a banana...subtle difference.
As for V2, I thought of charades....two words...

As for the AGM...cometh the hour, cometh the man, and that man would appear to be you, Bill.Smile

This banana is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late banana! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! Its metabolical processes are of interest only to historians! It's hopped the twig! It's shuffled off this mortal coil! It's run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This.... is an EX-BANANA!

My French is almost non-existent, mais si "ceci n'est pas une banane", qu'est-ce que c'est? (Feels grimaces and expects that much is wrong... but silly Sunday spirit...)
