In general, or should I say without exception the "My Other Car is a......" stickers are uninteresting and unfunny in equal measure.

From a long set of images of such things this did capture my interest in a "What on earth is it on about?" fashion.

Then I learn that the Budweiser Cyldesdales are a "thing" first introduced to "celebrate" the ending of Prohibition in 1933, and Budweiser maintain one of the largest Clydesdale Horse herds in the world.

"Possibly the best advice sign ever made" as the man from Carlsberg might say!! :-D

Odd coincidence but I stared reading a book about a secret bunker a couple of days ago.
Possibly the same one.

There were a lot of them, when we were kids just at the end of the war we found a manhole lid in the park where we played, one of the lads lifted it and we all went down the iron rung steps, there was a big room, and a huge table with dozens of telephones.

Of course some of the lads started playing with the phones and within a couple of minutes a car load of cops arrived and turfed us all out. :-D

This place is well worth a visit if bunkers are your thing. I was so taken with it last year I went back twice to revisit, especially the communications rooms!!

I actually saw a similar notice to this in a community centre about 30 years ago

Yep, I know the place well and have spent a few days in there going through the owner's archive doing research. It's a great place to spend a wet day looking at various Cold War items :-D
