Wordy-ish Wednesday: Funny Sign

posted in: Humor, NaBloPoMo, Wordful Wednesday 10 comments

I spotted this sign in a public bathroom a couple of months ago, and had to snap a picture. 

Yes, I am a 12 year old, because I laughed. 

‘Stopcock’ is a real word. It’s a valve used to restrict or isolate the flow of liquid or gas through a pipe. 

Except this sign spelled it ‘stop cock’.


PS: I hope this post doesn’t bring the weirdo searches to my blog.
