While on holiday in Cornwall recently I saw this sign:


No customers and not a camel in sight.

I've always been a fan of warning signs. This one I found in the late 1950s certainly amused me:

Just the image of a camel water skiing makes me laugh. And the other one is hilarious too.

I'd like to think that most unauthorized access to groins would be prohibited...... :)

The picture of camels on skis that put in my head is priceless.

Very funny

You know what's hilarious about this... is that a groyne is yet another word for dyke (the breakwater, not the slang). I love this language.

No problem, Canadian Mark. There's another old English joke, "That's no lady, that's my wife." [Fortunately she does not read my blog!]

You still won't get me skiing even with a camel to escort me! Oh yes, and I've tagged you at my blog :-)
