An example of a serious but smile-inducing graphic was the neon sign we saw in the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France that instructed wheelchair users what direction to proceed in if there was a fire in the museum. Mark said, “Not chariots of fire — wheelchairs of fire.” And in case anyone misinterprets that, he meant it in a wry and humour-filled manner — not a sarcastic or disrespectful manner.

For any of us who have grown up in more safe and secure environments, seeing a sign like this posted so prominently in a public place is a bit of a shocker. This photo was taken in a pub dining room in London and the sign warns the diners to be alert to the presence of thieves.
