What might be going on there is anybody's guess. One sure thing is that by posting the picture here, IronH4WK has made the signboard a butt of some jokes.

Guys, the sign commented upon almost certainly relates to "butt" in the context of a "firing range". A simple Google "firing range butt" would enlighten. English language to blame.... multiple meanings of words.... sorry to spoil the merriment...

Well I never. Not a context I ever knowingly came across before, but, Google Define, expand the definition and it is there. I always wondered about Chennai's Butt Road.

Something learned, Thanks Rakkum13.

I should probably have posted this in the What ails our Higher Education Institutions? thread .

Worried that things have fallen to a new low? Just chill and have a glass of lemon juice.

Excremental education!

And Shri Bharati English Medium High School absolutely requires a hyphen. English-medium or Medium-high... Their choice!

(And I'm still baffled. What do they think they meant by excretion?)

They wouldn't want theirs to be a hyphenated
existence. Hence the preference for free running nomenclature .

By Excretion, they obviously mean Excursion. Anyway, both words mean getting out, so a forgivable mistake. Don't you think? .

No. It's obviously a primer to a doctorate in coprology.

Oh, I see. I was thinking it an advertisement for the school, perhaps on the school bus. I considered "excellence," which is a trendy marketing word, but couldn't see how they could get it that wrong.

Excursion is a better match. I think you have it right!

If you look at the bus in the picture, you will notice a Casual Contract board. Middle class schools typically hire KSRTC buses to take their children out for picnics/short tours. Smaller or economically challenged ones make do with Tempo Trax, TATA Magic etc.



In fact, one of the perks of studying in a government run school in Karnataka is the opportunity to visit various tourist-historical places through a scheme called Karnataka Darshan.

Saw this sign at the Indian Oil bunk at Gottigere, Bannerghatta Rd, which happens to be right beside a Shell bunk.
