Subject: No folk and good....

Drove through Glossop, UK yesterday. The big pub in the centre is usualy called The Norfolk Arms but I noticed the "R" had fell off the sign! On the side you can see coming from the Snake if anyone wants to check.

It now reads "The No folk Arms"..... Has this got anything to do with the thread about UK sessions under threat???

Best thing I have seen since the advert in the Daily Mirror for a hair remover where the "E" had been missed off "Ears". It read "Remove unwanted hair from nose and ars..."

LOL

A local paper here published an obituary to a recently deceased lady which dropped an "r" and instead of reading "she was a friend to all, actually read "she was a fiend to all"

It disappointed me when I found that the singer-songwriter, Bruce Cochburn, pronounced the name "Coburn."

I was thinking of a headline that the society page of a newspaper published many years ago about the honeymoon of a newlywed couple of the same name:

"Cockburns off on wedding trip."

Imagine going into the pub and telling them that their R's dropped off.... 'Ere mate, your R's fallen off'..

'Bugger, how'm I going to keep me legs on.....?'

We recently had new service booklets made, which have Communion and Eucharist written on them. It also had Mass written up it with the M at the bottom, in shading, same general colour as the base colour. The title texts were written across this so that when you photocopied it, all you could see was 'ass'......

At a fun fair some years ago I came across signs for 'backed potatoes' and 'fried champions' (instead of 'champignons', as mushrooms are called in Germany). There was a third one, equally apt, which unfortunately has slipped my mind.

There was the classic (and I beluieve genuine) wartime headline:

British Push Bottles Up German Rear

So far as Norfolk goes - anyone remember how Sid Kipper's song with the chorus about being "Norfolk And Good" goes?

There is a solicitors in Garforth West Yorkshire called Godloves. The Sign above the office Reads "Godloves Solicitors" quite often some wag has chalked beneath "Good job somebody does".
I once passed a church in the days when Sunday trading was just starting in supermarkets and the sign on the wayside pulpit read "St Michaels Anglican Church, Now open on Sundays"
and finaly a sign in Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles above a chemists shop "Fook Ing Chemists"

When I was in high school, back in the late Pleistocene, a church across the street from the school had an electrically lit sign on top that said "Jesus Saves". The electricity was on a timer that turned the lights off at midnight.

What did we say? "Jesus saves till midnight; after that you're on your own!"

Certainly remember the Sid K song - hence the thread title. Don't know any more genuine accidental 'funnies' but I remember someone buying a "Free Nelson Mandela" T-shirt 2 days before he was actualy freed. Bit of fabric paint changed it to "He's Free, Nelson Mandela is!"

Cheers

And just remembered as well - I have been in the No folk arms. Me and Spot were off on a ramble when we were 'caught short' in Glossop. Stopped in said pub to use the conveniences and had to have a pint of course.

Because it was persisting down we decided to call it a day and rambled in and out of local pubs all day in our hiking gear but that's another story...

When I was in New York City, there was a Chinese Restaurant across the street from the hotel called - really - Foo King. They were good, and cheap, so we ate there for many of our meals. But now, what we remember most about the trip was the Foo King restaurant.
