Scientific evidence of great minds thinking alike: While I was drafting my "Signs," Mike, having no idea what I was doing, passed along some great finds which included this -- yes, you guessed it -- Sign.

Sign on tables in a NYC Chinese restaurant: "Warning: Tips for waitress not privilege off customer, and not optional to do! Is custimarry and IS THE LAW for leave tips, otherwise is possibul to face prostection by law! Please be responsivele, leave tip and no go jail! Have a nice day!"

I'm going to have to hand off custimarry and prostection to Twisted Linguistics for further study.

___Freaky. I was listening to a CD -Ladies of the British Invasion -
Petula Clark's "Sign of the Times" was playing when I turned the computer on. (that song was over by the time I logged in..)

That Chinese sign sure did tie in!

I have seen three or four of those signs, but the rest were new.

Do I hear somewhere someone firing up some Five Man Electrical Band?
