Sign(Board) Language

All of us have seen roadside stalls selling 'Chinness' or 'Chinis' or 'Chinees' food or wine shops selling 'Child Bear'. They are not the only ones. Here is an assorted collection of others who brought a smile.

Where: Sector 62, Noida.
God knows what aafat (trouble in Hindi) befalls on the people who eat these parathas!


Where: Sector 62, Noida
He missed the word 'Chowk' but it is amply clear that he too dreams to make it big someday. Hopefully not like Akshay Kumar in that horrible movie!


Where: Aminabad, Lucknow
Now, this is taking honesty to extreme levels.


Where: Tribal Museum, Araku, Vizag
Wow, this is a crash course in euphemism writing I believe!


Where: Hogenakkal, Karnataka
A movie crazy parking owner?


Where: More store, Kondapur, Hyderabad
Just imagine if the X-Ray machine at some airport gets some snag and they put a sign like this one: "Due to technical problems, We can't scan you. Please Bare!" OMG!!!


Where: Mahabalipuram, Tamilnadu
They know that their stuff is not too good, so don't go overboard in praising ;)


Where: Juice shop, Kondapur, Hyderabad
"Pain Apple"?


This one truly brought a smile, not the sarcastic one, but one of real happiness. To see that some one in Railways was actually so compassionate and understanding that instead of using 'Physically challenged' or 'disabled' they used 'Differently Abled', which even Delhi Metro doesn't do.

Where: Kachiguda Railway Station, Kachiguda, Hyderabad.
