Thou Shalt Not Pass!

12:40 PM -- ICWales reports on a street sign that has cyclists racing to the doctor:

    For instead of a road sign telling them to dismount, the Welsh translation informs them that 'bladder disease has returned'.

    The temporary sign, placed in front of the roadworks at Barons Court roundabout between Penarth and Cardiff, correctly says 'cyclists dismount' in English, but says 'llid y bledren dymchwelyd' in Welsh.

    Owain Sgiv, an officer for the Welsh language campaign group Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg, explained: 'Roughly translated, llid y bledren dymchwelyd means bladder disease has returned...'

The issue is being handled, but the real, burning (no pun intended) question remains: Where had bladder disease gone in the first place?

Whatever. Gwlad to have it back!
