Coming To A Safe Construction Sight Near You

I did a health and safety course today, which as you can imagine was riveting (yawn multiplied by 10,000)
Anyway I just thought that I would share this little gem with you.
The sign above is a SAFETY SIGN which warns of a poisonous hazard*,right,o.k. Got that? Easy.
We were given a sheet of various symbols and had to write next to them what they meant. Then the "instructor" went around and randomly chose a person in the room to give their answer to one or other of the symbols. Some people got it right some almost right but when he asked a guy to give his answer, for the above symbol, the guy said in all seriousness "Warning Pirates About"
All I can say is PRICELESS.
xöx eve xöx
*I do know that in some countries this symbol can mean that there are landmines...But pirates on Australian/New Zealand building sites? Now I am scared and somewhat intrigued
Note-Just between you and me this 'Safety Course' was my 40th birthday present from Alan, I mean,COME ON.
Lame or what?
My birthday is not till Saturday...you know, just in case anyone wanted to know
