Wednesday night. I'm presenting instead a sort of Palate Cleanser whilst I wait for my Uninvited Guest to take the Pharmaceutical Hints I keep dropping and leave. Let's call the following some Sad Reminders Of Our Company here in these United States.
First off is a sign photographed by my nephew Zach, who spied it in his very own high school. He snapped a photo of it
Like you, I wonder. I wonder at the emphasis of Lights. I wonder if there is a "/" missing between ALL and NONE. I wonder if the lights can stay on after school functions. I wonder why the author didn't just write PLEASE TURN OFF LIGHTS.
This next example appeared on a dessert forum that I happened upon somehow in my travels around the Interwebs. Someone wanted some ideas for a dessert she could make that did not require sugar or an oven. This answer made me simultaneously laugh and feel true horror at the squalid state of some people's education. It is cut-and-pasted here exactly:
Jello and whip cream,fuirt salad, fuirt sherbert, freeze a can of any kind of fuirt and serve it in a bowl...crapes and sugur free ice cream..or traffle of jello whip cream fuirt..repeat to the top of the bowel.
I want nothing to do with anything of that last dessert.
