Oh - I dimly remember a thing called butter!

 

A menu I recently read in an ethnic restaurant was divided into categories:

 

Beef

 

Seafood

 

Foul

 

Vegetarian

 

Dairy

 

I did not order from the "foul" section.

In Puerto Pollensa many years ago I came across a sign outside a restaurant, advertising "Pizza with cheese and jam". I hope they meant ham!

 

Oh, and "Fishcaks and chip's" - outside an English Fish and Chip shop. The wayward apostrophe was bad enough, but I don't even want to know what's in a "Fishcak".

Many years ago there was a roundabout in our town which only had two exit roads signposted 'Town Centre' and 'All Other Routes'. Later a new road was built aiming to divert traffic around the town and this exit was signposted 'All Routes' so until someone realised and the signs were altered your options were 'Town Centre', 'All Routes' or 'All Other Routes'! I often wondered how people unfamiliar with the area reacted.

That sounds like the ring road in Huntingdon, I think it was, which was oddly signposted or something, so you'd find yourself attempting to head for the town centre and then suddenly find you were driving out of town!

Whilst on holiday in Crete severall years years ago, we happened on a taverna in a remote village offering 'Spleen Omlette Calf Pluckett' as a menu choice - ever since then 'Spleen Omlette' has become a standing joke as a menu choice for picky dinner guests!

It's back - much to the amusement of dd and me as we drive past at this time of year...

 

A local garden centre advertising for Christmas has a prominent sign reading:

 

'Visit us before Santa visits you'

 

We can't help imagining it being said by Vinnie Jones or a Eastenders-style villainous type who adds the words 'or else!'
