Sign of the Day


  1. Mairead says:

    As opposed to the other kind of water, of course.

  2. Goatwhacker says:

    Maybe they were thinking there’d be some illiterate chemists around.

  3. Must have found that one over at the department of redundancy department …

  4. Well, it’s CORRECT, at least. It could have been D2O or T2O water at a nuclear facility, in which case, it probably would have been best to leave it alone. ;)

  5. That’s better than the “H2O2 water,” which has a nasty aftertaste and turns your hair a funny color.

  6. TheNewGuy says:

    Is that a Samuel Taylor Coleridge reference?

    [GD – educate me…]

  7. TheNewGuy says:

    Ah… sorry. Coleridge was an 18th century English poet, and the “H20 water” sign seemed to me redundant (“water water”)… but it brought to mind a couple of stanzas from the Rime of the Ancient Mariner: (his most famous work, other than Kubla Khan)

    “Water water everywhere, And all the boards did shrink
    Water water everywhere, Nor any drop to drink”

    I know. Pretty obscure… but that’s what your picture brought to mind.
