A prankster changed the signs at the pet store. They are highly amusing. http://www.sadanduseless.com/2015/05/pet-store-prank/

There is a fish and chip shop in a nearby town called '300 Spartans' with a hand-painted sign on the wall round the back that always raises a smile: Parking for 300 Spartans.  They must be very small, given there is only space for two cars at most.

I can't believe I misread the sign!  It actually reads 'Parkin for 300 Spartans'

(Parkin is ginger cake made with oatmeal and treacle... and delicious!)

Those are fantastic!  Very realistic, aside from the fact that I'm pretty sure baby Godzillas aren't sold in pet stores.  You have to order them on E-Bay.  ;-)

Totally shared to FB and have decided to name any future band I have "Invisible Jenny."

Well, at least they are getting some. A garage door on a tower block near the Elephant and Castle in London had a hand written legend "No Parkin" I hope no one who reallly fancied a slice was passing.

Family and I saw signs for  "Accessible Toilets" in a department store. Yes, we know they are for differently abled people, but surely all toilets are accessible, or should be.

An acquaintance on my medical transcription board posted this one.  They are going to be undergoing a double bypass, and this was the sign on their bed:

CARDIOLOOGY

Well, it wasn't exactly a sign, it was a license plate.  We got passed by a little pocket rocket Mitsubishi Evolution.  His license plate: HIOFICER   (Hi officer!)

Is it a chicken, though, or are those flames?  Is the pasta on fire? I didn't think that Carbonara meant THAT!

I like the man holding his forehead like they are having a difficult conversation.

Maybe he needs 2 glasses of wine ... >:D

Maybe the chicken is on fire ...  :o

For a decade or two, dry cleaners in our neighborhood that provided alterations advertised the fact with a large window decal showing an older man sitting at a sewing machine.  He wore glasses and had a tape measure over his shoulders. 

In the last year, the image has been changed to an older woman.  Everything else is the same.  We have vibrant LGBTQ community where we live.  I laugh to think that an advertisement for clothing alterations has become transgendered.
