What about this sign? Where am I supposed to go between 6am and 9am?

Actually, the "Unique" poster is not actually a despair.com product, as far as I know.

I believe this is the original: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/23149690/

The blue crocodile warning sign is from the Australia Zoo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia_Zoo), of Steve Irwin fame, near Beerwah, Queensland. I have a very similar shot myself. R.I.P. Steve.

I think that first mystery sign means that a burglar is lying in wait, and to be prepared or safe or something....

About the "Man at Work" poster in Bratislava: in the centre of the Bratislava there are several bronze statues which are placed where people would normally be doing stuff that people normally do: one of them is standing in the corner of two streets, one of them is sitting at an actual park bench reading a paper, etc. The picture in the sign depicts one of those statues, a worker peeping out of a real man hole in the street, so the sign is obviously meant to be humourous.

The No Smoking sign is from Baker Street station on the London Underground.
