Hilarious Signs !!

  • Over a gynecologist’s office: “Dr. Jones, at your cervix.”
  • On a plumber’s truck: “We repair what your husband fixed.”
  • Pizza shop slogan: “7 days without pizza makes one weak.”
  • Door of a plastic surgeon’s office: “We can help you pick your nose!”
  • In a non-smoking area: “If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action.”
  • On a maternity room door: “Push. Push. Push.”
  • At an optometrist’s office: “If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place.”
  • In the front yard of a funeral home: “Drive carefully. We’ll wait.”

This is probably why Japanese are so perfect in their jobs. 😀

Father O’Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Ballina parish.

He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a donkey lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. Not knowing who else to call, he promptly called the local police station.

The conversation went like this:

“Good morning. This is Sergeant Flannagan. How might I help you?”

“And the best of the day to your good self. This is Father O’Malley at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. There is a donkey lying dead right in the middle of my front lawn. “

Sergeant Flannagan, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, “Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!”

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment and then Father O’Malley replied:

“Ah, to be sure, that is true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin.”

I had listened to a song ‘Remember the Name‘ by ‘Fort Minor‘ once, and found its lyrics to be quite befitting. It goes like this :

“…. this is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of Will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name …”

This being my first post, I thought of starting off with my name ~ Ankur Sharma.

The meaning of my name ‘Ankur‘ can be well understood from the above picture. It means “shoots” or “the first beginning of a plant as it develops from a seed, or a new growth on an already existing plant“. And as seen in the picture, the early beginnings or the shoots are well noticeable, and here’s my beginning. My first post 🙂

I hope you enjoy what’s more to come !!
