"Reroute the Flute"



Yet another mural, this one on the Lower Ormeau Road. Quite witty, it is based on a 'no entry' roadsign. The figure wears the sash and bowler hat traditionally worn by members of the Orange Order. The lower Ormeau area has been a flashpoint between Orange Order marchers and Flute Bands and protestors for a number of years now. This sign suggests that marchers just aren't welcome in that area...

Nice photo! There's that red "bump" traffic sign, and the car. And the mural (or old fashioned text message???) on the left looks interesting... but the man who is not supposed to enter - he has a RED sash... Hee hee....

Wiki entry on Yellowman - I wished someone would upload photos of it and honeycomb to the curious could compare ;-)

Though as you can see, with an eye on the tourism market, they're calling it Leprauchan's Gold (some people have no shame!).
And here:

is a recipe.
All this could go some way towards explaining the appalling levels of tooth decay in NI:-@
