This poor blog has been neglected. Please forgive me as I am half way around the world at the moment. We’ve been here a week and it has been HOT. I’ve started putting my thoughts on a little Taipei travel blog and here’s what I posted over there today:
Taipei has many, many signs – most of which are relatively normal. But every once in a while I’ll come across one that just cracks me up. Usually there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, but it is so out of the ordinary for me that it makes me laugh. Below are a few of those.
Taken at the penguin exhibit at the Taipei Zoo. They want us to be quiet.
Also from the Taipei Zoo. There is a “Know the Poo” exhibit in the bathroom area that shows the different sizes of poo of different zoo animals. It seems highly unlikely that an exhibit like that would be approved of in a US zoo, but I’m not sure why. There’s nothing wrong with it, right?
Again, nothing wrong with this sign. Taken in the women’s restroom on the observation deck of Taipei 101, the world’s 2nd tallest building. Message: Women, please don’t hover and make a mess. Thanks.
Taken at the enterance to Dahu park in Neihu district, Taipei. Again, a perfectly fine message, right? But this one really cracks me up! I, for one, am glad that the urinating man is standing right where he is.
Apparently potty humor makes me laugh. Sorry to those of you out there who don’t find it amusing. I’ll be back to crafty posts in about a month.
