Bizarre Pentagon Office Signage

You know those irritating posters and signs that appear in office buildings, thanks to ‘well-meaning’ by annoying colleagues? Or those cheesy public health posters in doctor’s waiting rooms? Well, here’s what you’ll find in the Pentagon…

On bulletin boards, doors and office walls throughout the building, my colleagues and I would find dozens of security posters and signs of varying quality and message – some of them just as spooky as those Soviet posters in my professor’s office (and some still focused on the Soviets, for that matter). My favorite, which one of my co-workers was kind enough to swipe for me, was a warning to government officials about to travel abroad. “Get your travel threat briefing before departing,” it screamed, the words surrounded by hideous, bloody drawings of what might happen to if you weren’t careful – hostage situations, attacks in café’s, etc. – Sign Language »
Personal Favourite – those damned European pigeons »
