^^ Lol. I'm not sure if I would be able to contain myself if I were to read that board in real time. I would be extra cautious as to why that board is there and get thrashed for it.
Hilllllllarious!

Well, theres another gem on BEL Rd. Walk into the lane beside the 'Outshiny' laptop store and check out the raddiwala's board on the left.

... at first, yes, it is a giggle, but the indian railways booking site is now dealing in domestic flight bookings as well as train tickets!

Not terribly funny.

Toilets for ladies are generally referred to as Ladies Toilets
Toilets for gents are generally referred to as Gents Toilets

Why is it funny if toilets for the disabled are referred to as disabled toilets?

Is it because it sounds wrong to you, like the toilet itself is disabled?

In that case, to you - does "Living Room" sound like the room lives? See what I mean?

I have to admit that (with absolutely no disrespect to the disabled) I have wondered why a toilet should be disabled, just as I have wondered why some software menus have told me that I gave an "invalid" response.

More often, though, I have been amazed at the apparent ease with which babies can be changed in some shops. I wonder who takes the noisy ones that don't sleep at night!

@ch.nathan - Never seen something like those two bikers carrying that pole. What a stunt. Crazy pea brained losers.

Add to that, being "blessed with a baby". I wonder if people get cursed as well.

It used to happen in old Bollywood movies when the heroine got pregnant before getting married.

The dialogue used to be something like - "Kalmoohi, kaha se muu kaala kar ke aa gayi ?"

I would have written the English translation of the above, but I am finding it really difficult to find the exact English words corresponding to the above line.
