Here is a wonderful article about road signs. Two good things about it: It mentions a cow called Patience and does not use the word “iconic” at all.

That’s an interesting article indeed. I expect it will be read out at Dull Men’s Club meetings everywhere.
After reading the article, a lively discussion is likely to break out about signs in all caps versus signs that use both upper and lower case.
A particularly interesting thing the article points out is that the pictogram for “Men Working” looks more like a man opening an umbrella than a man using a shovel. Perhaps the sign can be used to warn about “Rain Ahead” instead of men working.
Sincerely (dull men are always sincere, mostly),
