…is advice I wold not take, not even after a heavy night of drinking and magic mushrooms. Sure, you’d get closure, but the sort that comes after the stitches has healed. It also the stupidest book title this year. Actually, it’s official title is the “oddest book” in The Bookseller trade magazine’s competition. If you think I made this up, I did not. Here’s proof (although I am not sure why I need to justify myself):

The runner up in this competition had an equally intriguing, if somewhat disturbingly titillating title:

Singapore is not very well known for many things, least of all, women. But it’s nice to know that they have great service in their hotels – the delightful beverages, and the Sluts at the bar. For only $6.25!

But it’s not very nice when you’re charged $5 for late coffee.

Thanks, neave

Again, this was taken when I was stuck in traffic. People ask me, “how do you get these things”. I haven’t got a trick really, just open your eyes and don’t accept the face value of things. Remember, there are two sides of a coin. Anyway, what’s funny about this company, is that if you are old enough or are familiar with the software, you’ll recognise that the logo actually came from Microsoft PowerPoint.

The irony, of course, is that this company sells windows!

This cannot be good publicity for a product. Then again, imagine the PR this has already generated.

A month ago, I started posting some funny signs that I’ve come across. Of course, I probably have come across hundreds, if not thousands, but this has only become one of my obsessions recently. And so I started sharing pictures of these wonderful nuggets here. Have you ever wondered where #1 – #8 are?

Traffic jams: Bad.

Traffic jams with things to see and do: Not so bad.

Traffic jams with funny things to see: Good

In Japan, because they don’t speak much English, is where I find an abundance of funny signs. “Please help yourself to the cleaner lady” and “Toilet at your rear”. So you would expect that in the U.K., the home English, the Queen’s language, is where you’d find grammatically correct use of nouns and verbs. But you cannot be more wrong. Because the number of funny signs I have seen in England can put Japan to shame! Exhibit A, signpost at bus stand, Richmond:

When I travel, I love taking pictures of signposts and noticeboards. It’s not because I want to make fun of their language skills, but it’s just the translation that really makes me laugh.
