Please explain.

Is it the Korn that bothers you? That's just expected around here, like Kountry Kitchen. We all know it is annoyingly cutesy.

No cholesterol in corn oil.
It's the words "coverd wtih" just below the cutesy Kettle Korn.

I didn't notice that initially...I thought we were all crying over the "NO BUTTER" part!

I despise the use of K or Q instead of C.

We have electronic signs all along the major roads to warn you of traffic problems ahead and the estimated travel time to a certain cross street.

Last week, while driving, I noticed the electronic signs were warning of traffic congestion, only the wrong direction as I had already passed the problem area.

Here's one from a bathroom stall...


In case you can't read it, it says "Jesus loves you!" with a smiley face.
Below someone has added "Yes, but He frowns upon vandalism"

This sign is on the napkin dispensers in the small Greek restaurant where I ate dinner last night

"Yes we have free WIFI. But why not talk to the people you're with instead?"

Not a sign, but a news article:

An emu has escaped, but according to the article, it is not considered a flight risk.  :P

I always laugh at signs that say "must be 21 to enter" on bars, or "must be 21 to purchase alcohol" in stores.

I always think, well, I haven't been 21 for quite a few years now.  Am I still allowed to enter the bar, purchase the alcohol, whatever?

I know what the signs mean, of course, but I wish they would include the words "at least" or "or over" or something.

We were at a swimming pool at a hotel i Taiwan that had a long list of rules in strange English.

Our favourite was:

Do not use unusual judgment eyesight

According to our Chinese friend it was supposed to say "Do not stare "

We have been using the expression ever since whenever someone looks at you as if you were crazy.
