I'm in a strange mood

Strange things to ponder:
  • What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
  • What if you're in hell, and you're mad at someone, where do you tell them to go?
  • Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?
  • Do witches run spell checkers?
  • Do you need a silencer if you are going to shoot a mime?
  • When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?
  • When cows laugh, does milk come out of their noses?
  • When they first invented the clock, how did they know what time it was to set it to?
  • How come wrong numbers are never busy?
  • Why are hemorrhoids called "hemorrhoids" instead of "asteroids"?
Now that I've got you thinking a little, here's some strange actual British signs (for your enjoyment, of course).
  • Spotted in a toilet of a London office: Toilet out of order. Please use floor below.
  • In a laundromat: Automatic washing machines: Please remove all your clothes when the light goes out.
  • In a London department store: Bargain basement upstairs.
  • In an office: Would the person who took the stepladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken.
  • In an office: After tea break, staff should empty the teapot and stand upside down on the draining board.
  • Outside a secondhand shop: We exchange anything -- bicycles, washing machines, etc. Why not bring your wife along and get a wonderful bargain?
  • Notice in a health food shop window: Closed due to illness.
  • Spotted in a safari park: Elephants please stay in your car.
  • Seen during a conference: For anyone who has children and doesn't know it, there is a day care on the first floor.
  • Notice in a field: The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges.
  • Message on a leaflet: If you cannot read, this leaflet will tell you how to get lessons.
  • On a repair shop door: We can repair anything. (Please knock hard on the door -- the bell doesn't work.)

And the British pride themselves on the proper use of the English language! :)

Usually these kinds of lists contain things I've seen elsewhere. Not so this collection. Thanks for the laughs!

Loved the list, Motherkitty. Hope you're keeping well and not too hot. Sunny but cold here.
