The situation is THAT bad?

Apparently the chances of catching the MRSA superbug or some other dread complication are so high in UK hospitals that the Health & Safety Executive require warning signs at hopsital entrances.

This is very funny stuff. I love it. Can you email me more stuff. I am going to set up a link.

I have a humorous blog at anrycomic.blogspot.com (I mistyped when I set up the blog) and a serious one at kgunauthor.blogspot.com. Also, my web domain, www.digifamily.org has cartoons that you may find amusing.

Please stop buy for a visit. (just wipe your feet on the mat before you come in, I just did the carpets).

Nifty blog! I love odd signs, too. I've posted several on my travel blog, Nomads Unlimited (link in my profile). Enjoy!

Awesome site. Now I'll need to run around town snaping pix of crazy signs to send in to you.

And congrats to being on the front page of Blogger in the Blogs of Note section!

Love the site! I actually collect photos of funny signs, too, but didn't think to put them on a blog. Very clever!

Signs I notice a few where I am from in Canada. We are bilingual. In Hong Kong, where I was born, even more signs, three languages, hindi, english, and chinese. Well, I haven't been back for five years.
Ever notice the colours are different and make no sense?

Curious said...

I love this stuff! Very funny...One of my favourite signs is "Slow Men Working"...I always laugh out loud because you always see 5 or 6 consturction workers standing around watching 2 or 3 people do al the work. I makes me think if they were fast men working, they wouldn't need a sign.

Many American doctors are so amazingly bad these days. That sign should now be required at all American hospitals as well.

mooncrazy said...

Very good. I saw a sign but didn't photograph it and regret it everytime I see something else so silly. Gonna bookmark this. Thanks for the laugh.

Fancy calling your hospital "Danger Hospital",LOL, I saw a wooden sign on a public toilet block where I used to live in Eildon, Australia, it read 4u2p. Just started this blogging thing, bit of an internet virgin, but oh well....

Annie said...

I enjoyed your signs - thank you for sharing.

Marcel said...

MRSA is really bad here in the U.S.
They covered it up when my mum
got it and said it was pneumonia.

EmailHosting.com said...

Why would a hospital entrance be danger? That doesn't say too much about the docs inside huh?

Kyle said...

These signs remind me of the sign I saw near a senior citizen home. It was basically an old people crossing sign - a yellow triangular sign with a picture of two bent-over old people.

Hamzah said...
