Ever since Expo blasted through town stripping us of food streets, pajamas, and chinglish (basically everything fun) we’ve found few if any chucklz amongst Shanghai public signs. So you can imagine our delight at this wonderfully pure specimen spotted by the escalator in the Shanghai Long-Distance Coach Terminal.
I don’t know what horrible disaster possibly befell one of the escalator’s patrons for this giant metal sign (about 1.5m) to be set up squarely in front of it – actually blocking the down escalator, which was shut off – but I wish them a speedy recovery.
