Another one in my 'Spotted at the...' series.

When I was an undergraduate at the former University of Singapore (now NUS) in the Bukit Timah campus, my weird sense of humour had me imagining a sign in the Mathematics Department that said cheekily: "Go forth and multiply".

Seems that there are others of similar ilk, and their creations are compiled in this list that was recently sent to me:

Spotted... sign over a Gynecologist's Office:
"Dr. Jones, at your cervix."
In a Podiatrist's office:
"Time wounds all heels."
On a Septic Tank Truck:
"Yesterday's Meals on Wheels"
At an Optometrist's Office:
"If you don't see what you're looking for,
you've come to the right place."
On a Plumber's truck:
"We repair what your husband fixed."
On another Plumber's truck:
"Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber."
At a Tyre Shop:
"Invite us to your next blowout."
At a Towing company:
"We don't charge an arm and a leg. We want tows."
On an Electrician's truck:
"Let us remove your shorts."
In a Non-smoking Area:
"If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action."
On a Birthing Room door:
"Push. Push. Push."
At a Car Dealership:
"The best way to get back on your feet -- miss a car payment."
Outside a Muffler Shop:
"No appointment necessary. We hear you coming."
In a Veterinarian's waiting room:
"Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!"
At the Electric Company
"We would be delighted if you send in your payment.
However, if you don't, you will be."
In a Restaurant window:
"Don't stand there and be hungry;
come on in and get fed up."
In the front yard of a Funeral Home:
"Drive carefully. We'll wait."

Sign at a
"Best place in town to take a leak."
Sign on the back of another Septic Tank Truck:
"Caution - This Truck is full of Political Promises!"


Did you spot this?

When a terrorism expert was turned into a terrorism export! (ST, Jan 31).


One more "kia" (see yesterday's blog entry)...

Finally, just two Singlish words = seven words...
