Apparently this used to be a legitimate roadsign many years ago when still a gravel road leading up the Verlatenkloof pass. It gives us a glipse into the condition of the roads back then ... or perhaps the inadequate suspensions of the cars of the day ... or both! One can only imagine how fed-up the poor local Divisional Council manager must have got after receiving yet another complaint about damaged dentures, driving him to make up this sign. Or was it perhaps a case of, instead of fixing the problem, he simply fixed the symptom?
By the late 1990s, the sign deteriorated so badly that the farmer removed it. However, he was inundated with requests as to what happened to it, "forcing" him to renovate the sign and put it back up for all to enjoy again. (Here and here are a pictures of the original sign.)
Apparently there is/was an identical sign somewhere else in South Africa, possibly near Victoria West. Please pass on the details if you know anything about this.
