Many times I come across signs which make me laugh. If I have a camera with me I will try and capture them. Some that I have found recently include:
A street sign giving the distance to a famous Cambodian temple: 64,200 kilometers to the “Banteay Chhmar” temple. And they wonder why few visitors go there! 64,200 kilometers is almost exactly 1.5 times around the earth!
This second sign was at a restaurant in the Philippines. I was looking for a toilet to wash my hands, but then I saw the sign and got a good laugh! There is always room for more people to sit in this restaurant!
Two more were spelling issues which I found here in Cambodia. The first was a church which printed t-shirts for all the people in the congregation for Christmas. Check this out! Mary would be very happy!
Another was a name tag on a trainee waiter. He made the name tag himself. I am not sure if he kept his job or not!
The next sign I found in Singapore. Singapore is known as a “fine” city meaning they fine you for everything. However, as long as I have spent in Singapore I have never actually seen anyone get fined for anything (especially for smoking which is rampant). On a local bus I saw a sign which caught my attention. “No Assault on Bus Captain”. So is violence against bus drivers a big problem in Singapore? I thought it was funny they actually made a sign against assaulting bus drivers!
Well, just today in Cambodia I saw another sign at a grocery store. It is saying not to punch the check out girls! J It must be a tough job to check people out of a grocery store. Again, I think it is pretty funny that they put a sign to stop people from punching others! (It is a Chinese store, so maybe they came from Singapore).
