My favorite ‘No Parking’ sign was at the courthouse in Kalamazoo, Michigan– it read: ‘No Parking: Prosecutors Will Be Violated’.

Did you park there anyway while you ran in to get a bagel?

I am thinking of a number of conservative finance ministers that auctioned off public holding in the 1980s. Nice that someone still reserves a parking place for the likes of Michael Wilson and Geoffrey Howe and Roger Douglas.

1) Didn’t Alan Sillitoe write a book mentioning the prosecution of William Posters? *

2) Lion Country Safari sported signs warning “Trespassers will be eaten.”

3) A proposal was floated for a Human Pee-In: “Void where prohibited by law.”

4) The Pentagon is said to have a parking lot named for Oliver North.

* Bill Posters Will Be Prosecuted

Inlet Street, near my house, has a sign on the pole below the street name: “No Outlet.”

tyrone – it wasn’t the bagel place, but Next Day Blinds that we were calling into. But pretty close.

Pawnbroking not being among the more highly esteemed professions, to put it mildly, I cannot understand why one would want to leave his car in that spot. It’s almost an invitation to vandalism.
