NAKSHATRA COLLECTION

Some gems that I collected here, in the past few weeks!

The board outside a puncture repair shop near my house reads:
"Bike puncture done here" :-)

The restaurant I frequent every weekend proudly announces itself as a "Multi-Cushion Restaurant" :-)

The policeman's podium in a major road signal junction is surrounded by a warning poster: "Don't overtalk on your left hand side". At first, I thought it referred to talking excessively on the mobile phone using the lefthand-leftear combination, which was ridiculous! What a fool I was! But of course, it referred to "overtaking" :-)

A pay-to-use lavatory near my usual bus stop, has a board on the door that reads, "Pay toilet to use money". Four days stomach ache, laughing after reading that! :-D

Here's the one that made me look like a complete fool. I was shocked when I saw this poster on a public road, that read, "For Females Contact: 98365-98735" When I pointed this out to my roommate, he laughed uncontrollably for five minutes. The top half of the poster had been torn away! The full poster, pasted on a wall a little further, read, "PG Accomodation For Females Contact: 98365-98735"! :-)

Ravi said...

I remember this message on the 'L' board atop of a driving school car : "For Ladies to Ladies"

Remember the "Stop & Shop" Chain Stores? One such outlet had opened in our area many years back and within a short span of its debut, another enterpreneur had plans of opening a sweet shop and he named it "Stop & Sweets"!! Later he changed it to "Top Sweets" (probably due to Copyright breach!).

WA said...

The last one was the best of all!

Ambi said...

I loved your Star collection. I was always amused by my Chappai (read chinese) colleagues. Here are some samples:

"The last one provide the weekly report whom pass the dead line will be the one roll up for the next weekly"

"This may impact your approval process since VP is left. I will inform you if the authorization delegation has been announced"

Madhu said...

ROTFL!!! Hilarious stuff...
