Bič, Slovenia: Driving Down Route 105 in Slovenia

The things one finds humorous when one has begun to have a rudimentary grasp of a foreign tongue.

In Slovenian, as in Croatia, the consonant "č," a "c" with a breve over the top of it (thank you wikipedia for finding that name) is pronounced "ch." Which means I found hilarity in this one place name in the Slovenian hinterlands:
Straight ahead, on the way to Ljubljana, Litija, and Šentvid, is a town where you don't want to tangle with the womenfolk.

The sign was all the closer I wanted to get.
