    In Wales all road signs have to be paired: one in English and one in Welsh.

    It's a nice metaphor for the uneasy relationship between the two countries.

    The Swansea Council officials sent their English road sign to a translator, and received an out of office autoreply in Welsh.

    Guess what happened to the road sign.
