Please Excuse My French

That's what we used to say when uttering profanity in a "mixed" crowd. These days, at least in New York, people wear profanity on their T shirts.

These two signs express the feelings of many who live in crowded tourist destinations...that is, when the tourists lose control of themselves. I spotted the signs on tiny Jersey street below Houston in a small alleyway. So please excuse my French...I couldn't resist.

To answer your questions:

That was not a morf, just a good fire :)

Delta is a very quiet town of around 5000 people in far western Colorado. The sidewalks are rolled up around 8pm for good measure.

I have never been to Manhattan but I did live in the DC area for 3 years.

Sasidhar, I would love to see that pic! Thanks for the comments everyone.

hilarious...and directly to the point

LOL! We have our own version here of the first sign, but usually in Tagalog (or the native dialect). Maybe we should use the pictogram too for those who can't read (quite a lot of those here).
