"Billboard" is both a great answer and also DV trying to get way too cute.

How dare you imply DV could ever be TOO cute. He's exactly the perfect amount of cute at all times.

And I'm glad you did because otherwise I would not have connected the dots!

I don't think the US has an equivalent for your other submission though.

well that explains why nobody else submitted it. it's definitely among the top three most common signs on roads here.

it's a sign that you're the one who's driving on the main road. it's used in pretty much every single intersection.

Like.. the most important road in a city or whatever? Rather than some side road or something? That's fascinating!

Oh, no, it's not that... A google for what European signs mean lead me to this answer: When entering towns and villages you will see this sign that indicates you are entering an area where you have priority over any vehicles approaching from junctions on the right.

well, kind of. it's used when your road has right of way on junctions and intersections. kind of the opposite of the yield sign.

"main road" is probably not the right term, it was just the only term i could come up with

Yeah, we don’t have those here either (though we do have ‘give way’).

I think the term you're looking for is "priority road", but yeah, those aren't a thing here.

Commentary
An extremely spread-out round this time! This was also the first time I had to make some judgement calls on grouping answers together. I grouped Roses & Flowers together, as well as Rain/After the Rain/Petrichor. Baking got folded into Baked Goods, but unfortunately because one person submitted both Baked Goods and Bread, I couldn't fold specific baked items into the general category. For the same reason, "Cooking" didn't absorb any specific foods. If you don't like my judgement calls, oh well.

None of them impacted our lowest score, which was Ircher (hydroxide???). They drop a level along with Aronis, who gets our first activity strike. No perfect scores this time, but D3f3nd3r got very close with a 34!
