Signs of Drunkenness
I was once staying at a remote hostel and I asked about getting a taxi home from the local pub. The woman who ran the hostel recommended driving our own cars since, as she put it, “Everyone drunk-drives round here”. Note that she didn’t even say ‘drink-drives’, she specifically said ‘drunk-drives’.
Fortunately for us, ‘The Authorities’ endeavour to keep us safe from such dangers by issuing very exact road-signage.
STUDY AND BE WARNED!!!
(To prove the seriousness of the situation, note how the sign has been damaged – presumably by a drunk-driver clipping it).
(This might seem unnecessary at first but you discover pretty quickly that it really is hard to get the stain caused by the combination of blood and childish brains out of your trousers and, in these recessionary times, who among us can afford to be throwing away pairs of trousers every time it happens?).
Thank you, The Authorities, for keeping us safe and clean.
