(see attachment in previous post)

There is a town like that, not too far from me, where something like that is actually possible. Imagine standing in Passaic and facing the direction which would put Clifton left, right, and straight ahead.

When I was a kid, I thought there were 2 different towns here named Clifton, because we'd go through Clifton, then Passaic, then Clifton again. And I thought that was really stupid, because how would the post office know which Clifton you lived in, if there was two? (This was before the use of zip codes on mail was required.)

Right on top, with masking tape and a Sharpie, of course!  :P
And why the masking tape  :o?  Sounds temporary  :P.

Because I am the frugal type. Once the contents hit the expiration date, you dump it, remove the tape, wash it out and reuse it.  :P

But if you are the wasteful type that considers these kind of containers to be disposable, by all means, write directly on the lid and toss the whole thing when it hits that date.  :D

Be more frugal, save tape and ink - just lift the lid occasionally.

If it smells, it's passed it's use by date.
If it doesn't, then it isn't or it's so far passed it that it looks dessicated.

The tape and ink are cheaper than the paper towels and cleaning supplies required to clean up the vomit.

Cleaning woman in Italy throws out artworks

A cleaning woman in southern Italy has unwittingly thrown away contemporary artworks that were supposed to be part of an exhibition.

Lorenzo Roca, head of the cleaning company, said the woman "was just doing her job" when she thought two artworks were part of trash left behind by those setting up for the show that opened Wednesday in Bari.

Show organizers said one of the works she gave to a city sanitation crew before dawn included pieces of cookies, which were scattered on the floor, as part of an artistic arrangement.

Roca said the cleaning company would use its insurance coverage to pay for the trashed art works, whose value was estimated at 10,000 euros ($13,700).

That's some expensive cookie crumbs!

Just found this in a comment for aone of Ken White's posts at Popehat:

As a rationalist, a keen environmentalist and a despiser of corporate cant, greed and corporates' hugely destructive environmental footprints despoiling the land/environment, I just love it when the troughers score a hilarious and ironic own goal.
I have already posted about 2 priceless ones in this thread:

Today I read of a rather good new one - it's on WSJ behind a paywall, but it was referred to in Forbes - here.

The WSJ article linked to by Forbes apparently puts it rather succinctly (and, I suspect, tongue-in-cheek) thus:

Exxon CEO Joins Suit Citing Fracking Concerns
Residents of Dallas Suburb Fight Construction of Tower That Would Provide Water for Drilling
By Daniel Gilbert
Feb. 20, 2014 5:45 p.m. ET

BARTONVILLE, Texas—One evening last November, a tall, white-haired man turned up at a Town Council meeting to protest construction of a water tower near his home in this wealthy community outside Dallas.

The man was Rex Tillerson, chairman and chief executive of Exxon Mobil Corp.

He and his neighbors had filed suit to block the tower, saying it is illegal and would create “a noise nuisance and traffic hazards,” in part because it would provide water for use in hydraulic fracturing. Fracking, which requires heavy trucks to haul and pump massive amounts of water, unlocks oil and gas from dense rock and has helped touch off a surge in U.S. energy output.

It also is a core part of Exxon’s business.

Assuming that this is true, then I reckon this chap Rex Tillerson should be given an award of some kind. It really is rather ironic/funny. Another LOL moment for me, at any rate. Priceless.

Sounds like the classic elitist 'not in my back yard' reaction to me.

Eheh. I did warn that "you might not get the joke, right off.".
(Clue: If you right-click each image and select Save Image As, it will reveal the filename...)
I thought it rather funny too. That's why I posted it.
(And yes, it is deliberate. It is in the style of Private Eye. It's quite clever.)

From Re: You like science fiction, don't you? Of course you do!
...A Muslim cleric, a Roman Catholic priest, and a Jewish rabbi were discussing their individual experiences of miracles.

The Muslim cleric said, "Once I was riding a camel alone, in the middle of the Sahara desert, and suddenly a fierce sandstorm appeared from nowhere.  I truly thought that my end had come as I lay next to my camel while we were being buried deeper and deeper under the sand, but I did not lose my faith in the almighty Allah, and I prayed and prayed and recited passages from the Koran.  Suddenly, a miracle occurred, and it seemed as though for a hundred metres all around me, the storm had stopped, but I could see it still raging beyond that distance."

The Roman Catholic priest spoke up next, "My experience was very similar.  One day when I was walking down a street in Belfast in Northern Ireland, during the time of the Troubles, I was walking past this pub when people ran out screaming 'It's a bomb!'.  Well, I just stood still, put my hands together, and prayed, thinking to protect all the poor people who might get hurt if it was indeed a bomb. Sure enough, just then, a bomb went off inside the pub, and blew out the wall next to where I was standing, throwing bricks, nails and bits of glass in all directions.  When the dust settled, I was still standing unharmed, in what seemed to be circle of safety all around me in a radius of about a hundred feet.  Inside that circle, no-one had been harmed."

The Jewish rabbi said, "I too have had an experience similar to this.  It was one Sabbath (a Saturday) when I was walking down the street to my synagogue in London.  I like to walk along past the Mercedes showroom, to look at the cars.  I would have loved to buy a new 350SL - it's my favourite car - but I could never afford it unless they sold it for half the price!  As I approached the showroom, I saw a sign in the window that said 'Today only! One only!  Special offer! Brand new 350SL demonstration model at half price!'   I nearly cried!  What could I do?  It was a Saturday, and Jews are not allowed to handle money or engage in commercial transactions on the Sabbath, so I could not buy it even though I could have afforded it.  So I put my hands together and prayed and prayed.  Suddenly, in answer to my prayers, a miracle occurred - for 500 feet all around me, it was a Tuesday!"
