Years ago, whilst visiting a friend in a maternity hospital, I saw a poster of a new-born babe and the words across the top were "The first few minutes of your life are the most dangerous".

Underneath, someone had scrawled, "The last few are a bit dodgy as well!"

Do headlines count?

Saw a headline once, think it was the good ol' USA Today:
"Women Prefer Bush!"
it screamed. Now with such a promising start I had to read the article...unfortunately it was about US politics.

In a part of my workplace, one of those door signs saying:

This Door is Alarmed

has been added to underneath with the words:

I'm a little concerned myself;) ;)

In one of our kitchen areas at work we have a notice which says:

"please wipe down the surfaces after use, there is no charge for using the dishcloth"

to which someone's added "nor for any disease off it"

Only slightly amusing but makes me smile nonetheless - especially when you see the dishcloth :yuk:

Notice on a door down the corridor from me at work:

This door must remain closed at all times.

It is on the only entry to the room where nearby people get their interoffice mail, etc. It is not intended as a joke.

One from my airforce days.

Written on a toilet wall: Please flush twice - The Mess is a long way from here.

Actually, I always thought the food was much better than Army and Navy food.

Written next to a very grubby roller towel

In the interests of hygiene, please wash your hands after using this towel

On an electric hand drier at RAF Gutersloh in 1982, but still very appropriate today: "Press button for a one minute speech by the Labour Party".

Often seen in cities:-
Pedestrians look right.
(I agree!)

Found on a toilet wall in a restaurant in the Alps (loosely translated):

Please step up closer. It really is shorter than you think.

Does this comply?


(see extreme right, top row) What's the point of bandaging someone who's lost his head? :}

BTW, I thought this was going to be a thread about Onan...

A former colleague of the female persuasion had written a note in our kitchen...
"Please clean up after yourself! Your Mother doesn't work here!"


"Neither does your husband."

Restaurant table. Sign reading 'Reserved'. Table next to it. Sign reading 'Extrovert'. :D

Apocryphal customer service warning: "please do not ask for credit as having your clock punched and your body ejected forcibly from this establishment may offend." :uhoh: :ouch:
Loved that store notice: "Children under sixteen must be supervised at all times or they will be arrested."

Small, 3 inch across sticker in the corner of a huge pub window reading: Braille Menu Available Here.
Complete with non-raised, inside the glass braille dots to the same effect. :confused:

Road sign I saw next to the A259 last Friday... "Children Drive Slowly".

I didn't think they were supposed to drive at all...

Located outside a pub in a small town populated mostly by indigenous locals who frequent the establishment, alerting others to the effects of too much alcohol during pregnancy.....

At work: due to the recession the light at the end of the tunnel has been
switched off

also: Getting things done around here is like mating elephants
1) its done at a high level
2) its accompanied by a great deal of roaring and trumpeting
3) it takes 2 years to see the results
