Artists install Monty Python silly walk signs in Norwegian town

Cross-border Swedes launch art installation attack

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

A Norwegian town has reminded denizens that a normal gait is preferable to a strange one after Swedish revolutionaries installed a pair of silly walk signs.

An art group put two street signs inspired by Monty Python's Ministry of Silly Walks on either side of a zebra crossing.

"It's just for fun. There's no deep thought behind it," Reidar Johannes Søby from the Kreativiteket art group said. "People live in their ordinary lives and when they see this sign, maybe they can have a little smile on their face. That's all."

Apparatchiks at the Norwegian Public Roads Administration were not best pleased about the addition to the town's street furniture.

"They are not very happy about it," Søby said. "They do not seem to have a sense of humour.

"One should not use signs that can be confused with public signs," section chief Elisabeth Bechmann fumed.
