Yesterday I wrote a post all about Chinglish and the curious and rather beautiful images that it can produce, today on the other hand I shall be having a quick look at some intentionally silly signs in English, and one or two that are obviously not intentional, but simply the production of what Frank Zappa called the most common thing in the universe – stupidity.
So let us head on out into the world of silliness and start with a couple that are obviously the result of ether stupidity or the lack of education on the part of whoever designed the signs.
Actually this first one could well be the result of a degree of innocence that would be surprising in a politician, even an aspiring one!
And this one is simply stupid. Who on earth would allow this to be placed in public view? Makes you wonder how competent the medics will be in this centre. Or perhaps they have achieved the impossible and managed to reduce the time spent waiting in doctor’s waiting rooms to a matter of seconds.
And here is another one…. How on earth could this have not been seen by whoever commissioned it? It is a very odd world we live in. Though come to think of it, perhaps it is simply stating the truth, and now they do serve good food as opposed to the lousy stuff they used to serve… Hmmm….. Who knows?
