more questionable negatives


Jenny's email that went with this was classic, I'm just going to paste it here:
I took a photo of the attached, on our honeymoon cruiseship last month, and I gotta say, I didn't know what to do. (Which might explain why I actually crashed into them at one point.)

Ouch, hope it isn't the cruise line I work for. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised. Whenever my manager types oops in an email it always comes out opps. I cackle maniachly each time.

i don't like signs yelling at me in gigantic red when i'm escaping on a restful cruise vacation.

as compelled as i usually am to touch archways, i'm relieved someone has taken a stand against overt arch fondling, as they can-pass-germs. a veritable cesspool. at least wash your hands before touching "an" arch.

what purpose do those arrows serve? "this is the rest of the sign...keep reading. we thought you might be confused."

I think the arrows are intended to show the alternative, Yoda-style way of reading the sign: "'Do not' the archway touch." Probably the sign-maker really wanted to word it that way, but his boss made him write it in noninverted form. This is his way of getting back at the boss.

Is it a column or "archway", I'm confused!

Due to its smaller font size, I think "The Archway" resembles a signature -- the pseudonym of some mysterious character who lurks on the cruise ship and cryptically warns passengers, "'Do Not' Touch."
