Hilarious signage – read in sequence…

May 26, 2007 at 12:21 am 4 comments

I got these pictures on an email of British signs. I thought they are just too funny to be kept only on email.

And probably someone else has posted them on their blogs too, but it’s just too cool. Who has the got the humor to make a sign like that and the guts to put it up.

And despite the otherwise serious facade of the British, stuff like this is just so unexpected.

Ah how I love these Brits.

Humor is a great thing – how much farther it goes to deliver an otherwise boring message. It’s like those Dolk stencils. One can deliver a message in a placid tone and probably nobody sees it or give it with a touch of humor and it goes a long way and gets remembered.

It’s like what FraudWasteAbuse does with his blog. They’re banal subjects delivered with with a touch of humor and I remember them better than the news of the day.

Cheers all of you.
