Spotted by someone on Geoguessr, and shared here because it’s local(ish) and also (I think) rather amusing, this sign:
Which I have discovered is just where the N9 becomes the N10 a few kms north of Middelburg, just south of the border between the Eastern and Northern Cape provinces:
That would earn me 5000 points on Geoguessr, but this is just a blog post, so I score nothing.
Not much that’s funny about that until you see how Google managed to mash up and stretch out said signpost:

Colesberolesberg don’t make road signs, but if they did…
