Is that a Sign or a Trail Blaze?

Have you ever been hiking and wondered, is that a Sign or a Trail Blaze?

(A trial blaze is a mark the direction of the trail. In older times a tree could be blazed by hatchet chops, these days it is often paint on trees in a consistant shape and color for the particular path.) The following infographic is pretty humerous for anyone who has spent a good amount of time hiking and been confused by the "signs" left as trail markings. Enjoy!
