That 'Elderly Persons' sign: Can you do better?

Competition The revelation yesterday that some old timers didn't much like being portrayed as hunchback cripples on the UK's "Please don't run over elderly persons" road sign prompted the rather intelligent suggestion from some commenters that we at El Reg should offer a suitably non-patronising alternative.

UK elderly persons road signOr rather, that we should run a compo designed at finding said reworking of the classic kyphotic woman pickpocketing some poor old geezer on his way back from collecting his pension.

No sooner said than done. Here's the challenge: Knock together your suggestion and email it to me here. It doesn't have to be world-class artwork, since our in-house department will work its magic on the winning entry.

And what's in it for you? Well, the top effort will be immortalised down at Cash'n'Carrion in our Signs o' the Times section, with the author receiving a copy of the apparel and a selection of other shirts from El Reg's merchandising tentacle.

Simple as that. Closing date for entries is the end of the month, so get to it. ®
