Banning Group Hugs? & Travel Signs

Today’s post is an eclectic combination of odds and ends, but I’ll start by sharing my Rosanne Rosanna Danna moment. Does anyone remember Roseanne Rosanna Danna from Saturday Night Live? (I know, it was a long time ago).


As I was listening to the radio this morning I heard the announcer say, ” Today the city of Provo will vote on whether group hugs should be allowed within the city limits.” then they cut for a commercial break.

Someone wants to ban group hugs? I thought. Why would anyone do that? Group hugs are a positive thing, we need more positive things. That’s crazy! What’s this world coming to anyway!

As the announcer returned, I listened with angry ears. “Today the city of Provo  will vote on whether to allow BREW PUBS within the city limits.”

Brew pubs?

Oh. Well.

Never mind.

For those who never saw Gilda Radner / Rosanne in all her glory, I’ve included a  Youtube link at the end of this post.

Next on the agenda are the signs. These are signs I’ve either liked or laughed at in my travels.

Truer words were never spoken.

This was a cool sign. We were in Morrocco, in the place where two James Bond movies were filmed. There’s also a famous reference from the old horror movie the Mummy. “Come with me to the Kasbah . . .” I dare you to click on this movie clip – it’s pretty scary funny.

I get the point but have never heard it put in such formal terms before.
(Rock of Gibraltar. British territory.)

This sign was posted on the door of a gender-neutral bathroom in Kawaii. Even mermaids are welcome here!


Speaking of bathrooms – This sign was placed above the toilet on a cruise ship. It’s too small to read so I’ll translate. Flush toilet paper only, please. Dispose of diapers, wipes, and EVERYTHING else in the trash.
Everything? Well, O.K. . . .  but I feel really bad for whoever has to empty these trash cans.

 This was written on the front window of the Holy Donut store in Portland Maine. There is a line out the door at all times, and people wait cheerfully for ridiculous amounts of time to get their donut fix. That’s becuz, Holy Donuts are FANTASTIC.

Anyway, that’s my everything and the kitchen sink thoughts for today. I hope all is well with you and yours. If not, take a minute to watch Rosanne Rosanna Danna, she’ll make you smile.

  1. Hi Library Lady. Fun post – I especially loved the movie clip from the old Mummy movie. That was so funny, even though it wasn’t supposed to be. At the time it was made, the Mummy was probably really scary, but compared to the horror movies of today it’s certainly not. I prefer the old-time horror movies. I can watch those without having nightmares. “Come with me to the Kasbah my dear . . .”


  2. I once saw a sign that said all trucks taking loads to the dump must be completely covered. (Talk about driving blind…very dangerous) I saw another posted at a kids’ soccer field that said “All children must be seated during soccer games” (Now I have never seen kids trying to play soccer while seated…that sounds a bit awkward and boring to me.)


    • I love your comments Bestadman! You always make me laugh. The seated children at soccer games especially. That WOULD be difficult. Low score.
