slackananda: There once was a sign in London
That crushed a man perhaps drunken
Once hit on the head
He was knocked stone dead
Now he's unable to function

/window seat please


'twere the winds of one dark Winter night late,
when Fate she come callin' 'pon some sodden mate.
She pryed with icy fingers, so wretched winds blow
and a sign of the times did hit the stranger below.
a random sign fallen did make his blood flow

He lay there in darkness, in a deep pool of red
slipped life from his carcass, as the thoughts from his head
Knocked cold and assunder, like a drunk supped from a still
A nameless lad tarried: the sign did so kill
By book venders sign, one William of Hill

Well, duh. The odds of someone being killed by a falling bookmaker's sign is 50-50.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: We're dealing with people who toss needless extraneous vowels into simple common words with reckless abandon

/what more could we expect?



You know that plywood around the big hole in the ground where they're digging a hole for a new building?
Sometimes it has holes in it so you can look in.
Usually it's covered in posters and graffiti?

That's hoarding.

It's a very common word in the construction industry.
