Absurdities #6

By Eilene Lyon

This one, found on a walk down the mountain above Bergen, Norway, left me scratching my head. Is there supposed to be a hyphen in there somewhere?

Is someone hunting invisible witches, or is the witch hunter invisible? Or is the witch an invisible hunter? Now I’m extra confused!

And why does the sign suggest I should be more wary of the hunter than than witch? (If they are two different individuals.)

How does one go about hunting an invisible witch? If the witch is visible, what can an invisible hunter do to her?

Perhaps we can glean a clue from the following sign:

I expect photographing an invisible witch would be as difficult as hunting one. Or is the sign informing me that no one has a photo of the witch? They just have this little sketched outline on a piece of wood, presumably done while she was out doing her invisible hunting duties.

Then we have yet another confounding notice:

Well, I can’t imagine what I would feed one if I saw one! Eyes of newt? Sorry, I’m fresh out!!

  1. I was at Gunlock state park in Utah and they had a sign for dog owners. It was a dog on a leash covered by a red circle and line though. But what it showed in reality was “no dogs with leashes” But I think your signs there are fun. You in Norway now?

  2. My favorite: A North Carolina Department of Wildlife sign that reads: “Handicap Accessible Blind.” located on a narrow path that leads to a cliff overlooking the Green River. (You can’t make this stuff up!)
