When I first saw this sign courtesy of Maes-e and Scymraeg, I laughed. My wife and my 12 & 13 year old kids laughed too.
The Welsh “translation” reads This is a Wank Away Zone!
Very funny on first seeing it!
But reflect a bit!
How would you feel if an English Language road sign was erected on your road, outside your children's school or on the way to your workplace declaring it to be a Wank-Away Zone?
I would suspect that most people, who saw such a sign, would be angry, very angry.
How would you feel if a pervert used such a sign to justify masturbating outside a school and got away with it, because of what the sign says?
This sign complies with the current Welsh Language Act, it complies with voluntary codes on use of the language in the private sector and is, therefore, a practical example of why a new and comprehensive Welsh Language Act is desperately needed!
