    Nothing new. Check the ads on CBC TV and the articles in the newspaper.We are how we speak.

    LMAOROTF…..The entire sign is incorrect; should read ” Tri-Mart prohibites the sale of cigarettes to minors”. Person must have been busy watching cricket on TV while creating the sign! 🙂

    Back Up ….”Freedom of Speech” you’re off too — prohibites should be “Prohibits” . Be cool.

    Talking of funny signs. Years ago I remember passing by a small dry cleaning, Mom and Pop run store near the North York Centre subway station in Toronto. In their shop window was a sign prominently displayed that said, “Drop your pants here for quick service.”

    At least they were grammatically correct!

  9. And another one

    In the Barbados Authority of March 21 there is an article talking about Banks beer now being exported to Sweden. The title of the article reads “Banks going after Swiss market”. A note for the reporter who might not feel there is a problem here: the Swiss live in Switzerland, the Swedes live in Sweden.

    Oops, sorry. The video of the funny looking windmill was supposed to go in the Open Discussion thread where Colin Beadon and I are discussing this new, vertical rotor, windmill design.

    Nothing wrong with the sign. Selling cigarettes to miners would only complicate their health problems with all the coal dust already on their lungs. (didnt even know BIM had mines) TriMart should be commended for taking a bold stand.

    I do not understand why u make all this noise about the sign. The sign is correct! Gas is often present in a mine, so can be dangerous smoking in there. And Bim is pleanty of mines, isn’t it?! Mines of ignorance!! lol lol

    An old man in Britton’s Hill had up a sign:
    Yames and Pataties for sale.
