Is that a ban on fancy dress above?
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Don't rejoice too soon: the pub was open when I took the photo and I could see a large, fluffy, allergic-unfriendly cat on the bar.

I'm not sure about the exchange rate, but books and tea, what's not to like?

I think we have ranted/grumbled in the Pub about the issues that have originated signs like these...

Is that a square of bog roll carefully pasted on to the sign? Nice.

Reminds me of that good old graffito: "it's no use standing on the seat/the crabs in here can jump ten feet"  (wall of the Edinburgh University Union toilets, ca. 1966).
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

The "risque technologique" is that of being flattened by a shockwave and penetrated by low-flying bits of metal: there's a big munitions depot at less than a kilometre from the road.  It's been there for yonks but the sign only appeared this year.

Couldn't take a photo, but in my local primary school / polling station the election signage has been pinned on top of the Rules for a Happy Lunchtime, resulting in "Please put all rubbish in the parliamentary general election".
