Palaeolithic Health and Safety Poster

This one recently discovered in the Dordogn in what archaeologists are interpreting as the canteen of an Upper Palaeolithic cave system.

Festooned to the cave wall with a primitive form of resin-based blue tack, the poster overlay an early Banksy (loin cloth period) as well as the following pithy profundity:

What’s the difference between a Buffalo and a Bison? You can’t wash your hands in a Buffalo.

Jokes GOOD… but also BAD
