Noticing notices

June 21, 2010

I confess I get some particular pleasure occasionally seeing strange or incoherent notices in public places, and I am in the process of putting together a collection of photographs with some of these. But in the meantime I just came across this website with a few examples, some of which are really rather good.

The one that declares ‘Thank you for noticing this new notice’ reminds me of one I saw many years ago in a London park, which had only this written on it: ‘It is forbidden to throw stones at this notice.’ It seemed to me there was a philosopher at work in the parks department.
