Word for the day: YODALARM

Am I the only one who reads the word yodalarm and thinks of something like this...?
("Wake you, I will.")

Sorry to disappoint my Star Wars fans, but this is what an actual yodalarm looks like.

Apparently it's an electronic warbling device to warn people of imminent danger at places like train stations or level crossings. 

And I learned this after seeing this sign at an MTR station here in Hong Kong.

So now you know.
