"Yellow Truck", and admonitions about tea cups

I've always liked combinations of the representational with the abstract.

It was beautiful weather today (though a bit cold), so I went out to take the Canon G7 through the paces. I think I got quite a few good pictures. The above is the first I present.

The one below though is for curiousity. This sign was by the road side. What the... ?

Since then I have figured it out: the street is full of trucks from a carnival. The "tea cups" are big ones you ride in!
Though why this sign is standing on the street I don't know.

Wouldn't it be wonderfully surrealistic if fine porcelain tea cups came with this thoughtful warning sign attached?

No? I guess this is not your cup of tea then.

I love the truck photo. It reminds me of those candies that would come wraped in a yellowish-gold foil. I hope when that truck is finally opened tons of those candies pour out onto eagerly awaiting children. Like some modern pinata.
