Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

Moron (or more on) Flags (with added multimedia)

I hear that recycling is good for the environment. Here is a recycled blog entry then, dating from the last big football extravaganza to afflict these islands. Updated to the full multimedia experience, 1996 style.

I thought that during the coming football festivities it would be quite useful for drivers to display their flags in accordance with the International Maritime Signal system. In most cases, these flags would give a far clearer warning to other road users, rather than the general "I am a moron" indicated by the cross of St. George.
For example, the following, Which means, Keep clear of me, I am manoevering with difficulty:

For drunk drivers:I require a pilot:

Especially for Simon: Stop carrying out your intentions and watch for my signals:<
For the outside lane of the motorway crew: My engines are going full-speed astern:

And finally, for those motorists who hate to be overtaken: Do not pass ahead of me:

I will of course be displaying the latter throughout the tournament, fully confident that absolutely no right-thinking Englishman will mistake it for the French flag.
