This is a bit of a continuation of the thread Hugo started about a sign he saw inside a lavatory in a bus (you know, the one with the midgets in the trashcan). Can't seem to find it, and I think it better belongs in this new area anyway.

Got this one through "Worse Than Failure": Sign near a Brussels playground

I always thought that you Europeans were more worldly than us North Americans. I didn't realize that it started so young!!

That's so weird, I was just thinking about that post today and signed on to post something similar I read in New Scientist!

From their Feedback section: "The in-car litter bag that Dianne Jackson bought recently had an illustration of the bag in action on the packaging, with the helpful qualification 'Contents not included'. By the time she'd unwrapped it and disposed of the packaging in it, however, it was half full. So some contents _were_ included."

Anyone know the sign, or want to take a stab at making their own? :)

P.S. We're going to have to start saving these gems in a gallery somewhere, great one Hans.
