Church and Language

On Saturday I went to the Sussex countryside, so I could re-align and rejuvenate myself. On the way we stumbled across a lovely church. On the door was a sign, pictured above, which served to remind me (once again) how swiftly language evolves and main meaning can either alter or change. Have yourselves a gay old time today. Take Care Y'All John

  1. In Australia, that sign would probably mean something like;

    "Pull footwear gently, if door is on latch."

    Which is just as bizarre as the 'other' intrepretation!

  2. I've often had cause to deal with my thong in this way.
