    What examples of insanity or simply plain idiocy courtesy of the general public and the 'bigwigs' of companies have you seen?

    Mine would have to be [sorry, rampant pedancy again] the sign 'Pansy's ready' (is she?)

    I like the sign that says "This door is alarmed" Well, I'm pretty skittish myself ;)

    New signs seem to include things like a building site that claims "Danger of death" - like you have to be told? :dunno

    Peanut packets with "warning may contain nuts" on the back, an M&S Tiramissu pudding in a box, with "please do not invert this item" on the bottom. A kids superman costume with "warning this doesnt not give the wearer superpowers"

    There is a kebab house near my Parents' house with a sign that says:

    "This is not Burger King. You do not get it the way you want it.
    You get it the way we give it or you don't get it at all!"

    I know this doesn't exactly count, but I always laugh to myself when I see it written on an exam page:


    Its not a blank page if its got writing on......;)

    Not only that, but they also usually put "This page has been left deliberately blank." - No it hasn't, you have just written on it!

    I also like "There are no exam questions on this page." Nay! I never would have guessed! :roll:

    "MASSIVE RUG SALE" - very ambiguous.

    Is it the rug or the sale that's massive?
