Beware of Business Men in Buenos Aires?

Better to be cautious for school kids sign found in Buenos Aires, Argentina
On my very first visit to Buenos Aires I literally stumbled across this yellow traffic sign. I never saw a sign like this before so I could only wonder what it possibly means. You may laugh about me, but it's actually the truth. This traffic sign is anything but self-explanatory. The mysterious rhombus-shaped sign says watch out, but what for? Now I know it means "Escolares", but still, it looks like a business man with a briefcase to me rather than a school kid.
Did you ever stumble across any secretive signs?

Looks to me like a sign warning you to beware of people posting letters in a hurry! Funny!

@TITC
I really like your interpretation. What about an Argentine version of slippery when wet?

Hehehe. I love this! It looks to me like you are at risk of being attacked with a briefcase!

Hahahaha... or someone in a rush to return a library book. Are there any public libraries nearby?

I think it means that we should watch out for people carrying sledgehammers.

Just confirmed that my wife and I will be in BsAs in February 2010. When we use frequent flier awards we have to book these a long way in advance. That's far in the future but perhps we can say hello whan the time comes.

LOL! I'm glad that I'm not alone when it comes to misinterpreting this mysterious traffic sign. You're funny guys.

@Bob
I'm glad you'll visit Buenos Aires. Just drop me a line and let me know when you're there.
