    **TAKE THIS POST WITH A GRAIN OF SALT, OBVIOSLY I KNOW WHAT IT'S SUPPOSE TO SAY, I JUST FIND IT FUNNY**

    Ok so if I'm reading this correctly it's not ok to urinate here but they would really like it if I puked here? :p

    Actually, I think they're asking you to not urinate... ever. Bit presumptuous, I think.

    Apparently, they're politely insisting that you do...

    It seems that puking is not only ok there but encouraged. What I find more interesting that The Door is underlined. Is that the name of the place or they are just trying to stress that it is a door. Interesting way to write the letter D also. I do have to respect anyone that uses duct tape, however. That is the greatest invention. Don't know what I would do without it. :)

    Is it okay to vomit up urine there?



    Because, that's disgusting. :(

    I don't know what you Ozzies are into these days.... :eek: :eek:

    Mmmmm, so in what sort of place is it necessary to place a sign asking people to come in, but not to urinate or vomit? And why is defecating not a concern on par with the aforementioned!? :eek: :D

    Yeah, I'm a little worried too. But at least our signs are more specific... Plus, we can pretty much vomit, urinate and defecate where we like (within reason). :D

    What a thread! Someone else's poor grammar became topic of discussions (or decoding??)

    I wouldn't feel like vomitting reading it though. Now off for urinating.. :p

    Yes, but see, the difference is that within reason mostly amounts to within toilets for Americans. :eek: :eek: :eek: :D

    Of course, you know I love my Aussies... :)

    hmm could be a very special door. hehe

    To give everyone some background on this pic, I took it in a back alley in Banff, AB. So it's very possible (and most likley the case) that the business owners who made this sign do not speak english as a first language.

    Secondly all of us locals in Banff walk down alleys to avoid the tourist trap along Banff Ave, so at night when we've been drinking we still walk down alleys.

    Use the other door.

    There's no bathroom.

    Vomit here, not inside.


    ;) :D
