USE THE CART CARREL
I thought, "Um, perhaps it's a new word for me." NOPE, it's meant to be "CORRAL", as in "CART CORRAL"!
Below are other mysterious and confusing signs which I found on the internet:
In a public restroom:
TOILET OUT OF ORDER. PLEASE USE FLOOR BELOW.
In a laundromat:
AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES: PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT.
In a London department store:
BARGAIN BASEMENT UPSTAIRS
In an office:
WOULD THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE STEP LADDER YESTERDAY PLEASE BRING IT BACK OR FURTHER STEPS WILL BE TAKEN.
In an office:
AFTER TEA BREAK STAFF SHOULD EMPTY THE TEAPOT AND STAND UPSIDE DOWN ON THE DRAINING BOARD
Outside a secondhand shop:
WE EXCHANGE ANYTHING: BICYCLES, WASHING MACHINES, ETC. WHY NOT BRING YOUR WIFE ALONG AND GET A WONDERFUL BARGAIN?
Notice in health food shop window:
CLOSED DUE TO ILLNESS.
Spotted in a safari park:

Seen during a conference:
FOR ANYONE WHO HAS CHILDREN AND DOESN'T KNOW IT, THERE IS A DAY CARE ON THE 1ST FLOOR
Notice in a farmer's field:
THE FARMER ALLOWS WALKERS TO CROSS THE FIELD FOR FREE, BUT THE BULL CHARGES.
Message on a leaflet:
IF YOU CANNOT READ, THIS LEAFLET WILL TELL YOU HOW TO GET LESSONS.
On a repair shop door:
WE CAN REPAIR ANYTHING. (PLEASE KNOCK HARD ON THE DOOR; THE BELL DOESN'T WORK)
Police begin campaign to run down jaywalkers:
NOW THAT'S TAKING THINGS A BIT FAR!

WHAT A GUY!
Cold wave linked to temperatures:
WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED?
Red Tape Holds Up New Bridges:
YOU MEAN THERE'S SOMETHING STRONGER THAN DUCT TAPE?
Hospitals are sued by 7 foot doctors:
BOY, ARE THEY TALL!
And the winner is:
TYPHOON RIPS THROUGH CEMETERY; HUNDREDS DEAD!
