Where footie meets faith

This sign, posted on the door of a church near our house, is obviously what a very literal-minded marketer did with focus-group feedback showing that people find football more exciting than Jesus.

Crime-fighting fog

Tesco security warning

Tesco security warning

 

I’m totally with the stick-guy on this one.  Whaa? Fog-generating machines?  What kind of mad-scientist, steampunk approach to property crime is this?  It’s like they put the lead roadie for Spinal Tap in charge of Tesco security.

If I have this right, what happens is, when the burglar breaks into the store, fog machines start belching out billows of dry ice until the red-handed culprit either gives up and slithers to the ground in ocular confusion or spontaneously breaks into a Meatloaf anthem.  Then I guess the cops come in with special fog-goggles, scoop the bad guy out of the mist soup and haul them off to jail.  An equally futuristic jail, no doubt, with bars made out of sound tubes, and if you break the sound tubes, Maria Carey’s high notes pour out and have you writhing on the floor and clutching your bleeding ears. I’d love to see the pictogram for that.
