Seat for Bored Husbands wins funny sign competition

20th November 2009 | Warning Signs

Readers of the Times newspaper have voted for their five favourite signs as part of its The Signs of the Times competition. The most popular example is a bench outside a shop featuring the sign "Seat for Bored Husbands", which was originally submitted by Victoria Knight from London. Epsom's Daniel Scott sent in a picture from a temple in Kyoto, Japan, that reads: "Please do not see it while drinking drink. The PET bottle caps it and put it in a bag and please carry it. Please see the thing which the chief does not have after finishing drinking." It was voted into second place, although Mr Scott admits he does not know what it refers to. Other key examples include a phone with three buttons, marked one, two and three, next to a sign saying "999". Earlier this month, a spoof road sign giving travellers near Bristol the distance to Timbuktu was taken down by the city council as it said that, while it was funny, it did not improve road safety.
