That's OK, no one is monitoring.

I tend to avoid mocking situations where English is a second language, but this is Seville Airport and they can afford to get it right.

There is a world of difference between a Closed-Circuit TV and a Closed-TV Circuit.

Politically Correct?

Jane Merrick snapped this in May 2010. Someone clearly wearing their politics on their sleeve, so to speak.  I wonder how long it lasted before the political correctness police stepped in.

Message Fail

Clearly the graffiti artist cannot read or he is really taking the mickey.

Spotted a while ago, they have not been called "Silverlink" for a year or so now.

Clearly not as slaves to fashion

Dean found this one in Franschhoek, SA.

It appears to be a charity shop or similar and I have to wonder how hard up you have to be before you only buy one shoe.

Questionable salads

And it may or may not be for a limited time.

Spotted in Los Angeles by "Tousled Pigtails" but I am guessing that is not her real name.

Thanks Tousled.

Police tautology

What do they sign-write on the unmarked squad cars?  "Strand undercover policing"

Anyone who can see the car does not need to be told it is "visible".

Dean Finnie, being a local, had quite a different take on it. "I was amused by the thought that the local police have to differentiate between the usual standard of invisible policing and this presumably 'premium' service of visible policing. It was the first time we'd seen the visible service!"

A good source of Vitamin Sea?

You may have click to enlarge to read the label for these "Naval" oranges.

David Miller apologises for his cellphone picture quality but well spotted anyway - thanks
