Signs in the UK…

Saw some interesting signs in England the other day…

sign1

(PSPO is the acronym for Public Spaces Protection Orders and the local council can make PSPO if it believes the activities common in that area are detrimental to the local community’s life…)

The book store chain, Waterstones, always has good bookie-related signs. Saw this one:

waterstones_uk

And then spelling errors are a worldwide epidemic, it seems:

typo_1
typo_2
typo_3
tube_grammar
(Above) – The Underground Tube does not seem to believe in full stops (or periods). Drove me a bit batty and it was fortunate that I didn’t have a Sharpie pen with me…. 🙂

In case one gets starving looking for some traditional American food and you are a bit picky, try this place…

And then, although this (below) is not a spelling-related sign, it seems to fit into this post as a rather random aside. My bro arrived home from a day after work bearing chocolate Brussels sprouts (on the right hand side). Obviously, this is the only way to eat this vile weed. 🙂

And let’s recover from that hideous dietary mistake of the green vegetable with a lovely sign from the wonderful British Library:

I’d like a large serving of typos please…

Superhero and I are big believers in giving our consumer dollars to small local businesses when possible and so we went out to a new restaurant in town. As I scanned the menu, I happened to notice this:

Menu1

menu2

And this:

menu3

And this popped up:

menu4

With this one being my favorite:

menu5

I’m not going to name names, but this was a particularly high achieving menu writer, I think.
