In a bathroom:
Toilet out of order. Please use the floor below

In a Laundromat:
Automatic washing machines: Please remove all your clothes when the light goes out

In a London department store:
Bargain basement upstairs

In an office:
Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken.

In a London Office:
After tea break, Staff should empty the teapot and stand upside down on the draining board

Outside a second-hand shop:
We exchange anything — Bicycles, washing machines, etc. Why not bring in your wife and get a wonderful bargain?

Notice in a Health Food Shop window:
Closed due to illness

Spotted in a safari park:
Elephants, please stay in your car
Seen during a conference:
For anyone who has children and doesn’t know it, there is a daycare on the first floor

Notice on the fence along a farmer’s field
The farmer allows walkers to cross for free, but the bull charges.

Message on a leaflet:
If you cannot read, this leaflet will tell you how to get lesions.

On a repair shop door:
We can repair anything. Please knock hard on the door — the bell doesn’t work.

The Washington Post had an unfortunate headline yesterday, about Gov. Hogan (Maryland), a hefty man, considering the 2020 elections. Unfortunately, the headline writer put it:

Hogan Weighs 2020
