There are some signs which are very confusing and can easily give the wrong impression even when they are not translated by a ‘clever’ Indian or Chinese translator who think that they have a full mastery of the English language poor loves.

Here is a classic example!

Now don t get any ideas

I have a feeling that the sign doesn’t refer to the first meaning of ‘shag’ that comes to mind or indeed the rolling or loose tobacco of the same name.

Where would we be without these delightful adverts for the randomness of the human brain, I don’t know do you?

When Mrs. Anonymous (who I have to say I don’t know) sent me this picture from Cape Town someone had to explain the subject of this Museum to me because when I opened the file I had no idea what treasures were hidden behind the doors of the Natale Labia Museum.

Cape Town s Labia Museum

Now I know though and frankly I wish I didn’t!

Changing the subject – quickly – I hear from my publisher that the ebook versions of my wonderful books ‘Getting Out – Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary‘ and ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ will soon be available at the Apple Bookstore, the Sony Bookstore and on something called Kobo – whoopee I say if it means that more of the folding stuff comes in, or should that be – wonderful news that my books are available to a wider audience, well I suppose so, although the extra cash sounds nice too!

As you would expect from one of the world’s foremost self-promotionalists I will keep you informed of the developments as and when they happen so that you can buy my books at these great retailers as well as on www.Amazon.co.uk and www.amazon.com to say nothing of the shop at my www wickedlywonderfulwebsite My Store although because it is a beautifully designed website and very posh I call that page my ‘store’ which has a certain ring to it like um… Apple Store.
