A guest post from our friend Louise of the Chapter and Verse blog
Living in Birmingham (though really it could be anywhere, couldn’t it?), I am able to witness and enjoy many comical misunderstandings of the English language.
But why do we enjoy them so much? Is it because they point out how fragile and ridiculous language really is? Because they show us how differently others understand the same information? Certainly that’s what’s interesting to me.
I drove past a furniture shop the other day that proudly announced that it sold, among beds and tables and chairs, a Chester Drawers.
Alas and alack, the law (and basic common sense, inasmuch as I have any of that) prohibited me from taking a picture while driving. Google will have to do, I thought.
So for your delectation I have gathered some of the funniest signs the internet can provide feat. the English language. Enjoy!
