    Just curious....I was at the store the other day, when this sign caught my eye and raised a question: when the grocery store was deciding where to place items, did they even think about the implication they are making by placing this particular food group with toilet paper???? :confused:

    Ah yes, Raj.

    I was tempted to send that to the head office of that store. I really wonder if they realized what they did there.

    I doubt they even gave it a second thought, not intending to come off as racist. It probably is a good idea to bring it to their attention.

    In Cali we have many quite authentic Mexican restaurants and after a whole plate of Carnitas and salsa fresca washed down by a bucket of Coronitas, things can happen,er, quickly. It is a bit strange. I also wonder why the asian section is in the soda isle at my local super market.

    Back in the 80's when I was taking a lot of road trips through the south I saw many convenience stores with signage like this:

    I can't say too much, I live near a town called "Boring". The sign as you enter the town says "Welcome to Boring Oregon".

    Speaking of signs, I'm partial to this one from Sweden (no offense intended to the awesome Swedish folks here):

    I know some folks that could use some fart hindering here in the states.
