More Assorted Sign Language

In the window of a Kentucky appliance store:
“Don’t kill your wife. Let our washing machine do the dirty work.”

In a clothing store:
“Wonderful bargains for men with 16 and 17 necks.”

In a Tacoma, Washington men’s clothing store:
“15 men’s wool suits, $10. They won’t last an hour!”

Outside a country shop:
“We buy junk and sell antiques.”

In the window of an Oregon store:
“Why go elsewhere and be cheated when you can come here?”

In a Maine restaurant:
“Open 7 days a week and weekends.”

On a radiator repair garage:
“Best place to take a leak.”

In the vestry of a New England church:
“Will the last person to leave please see that the perpetual light is extinguished.”

In a Pennsylvania cemetery:
“Persons are prohibited from picking flowers from any but their own graves.”

On the grounds of a public school:
“No trespassing without permission.”

On a Tennessee highway:
“When this sign is under water, this road is impassable.”

In front of a New Hampshire car wash:
“If you can’t read this, it’s time to wash your car.”

On the back doors of most Australian Supermarkets;
“This door is alarmed”

And apparently, somewhere in England in an open field otherwise
untouched by human presence, there is a sign that says:
“Do not throw stones at this sign.”

  1. The English language is soooo delicious. What other language can be made to appear totally irrelevant … or should that be irreverent? I especially liked the Church one. Just what part of perpetual don’t they understand? LOL It reminds me of a form I fill out every year from a Government Department which issues, somewhat grudgingly, a small amount of my Pension income. The question is “Does the patient have any likely rehabilitation from this complaint?”. The answer is alway “NO! The condition is PERMANENT and her abilities to function will continue to decline”. Every year! But they still ask. OK … so what part of permanent don’t they get? Who the hell knows???
