Here’s my fun news story of the day.
No kissing allowed at Warrington station – it blocks the platform.
Lovers hoping to bid each other an intimate farewell will no longer be able to do so in certain areas of Warrington Bank Quay train station after “no kissing” signs appeared following concerns that embracing couples were causing congestion. The signs were installed on Friday as part of a £1m refurbishment of the station and have divided the car park and taxi ranks into “kissing” and “no-kissing” zones.
I think the real story here though is the silhouettes they have chosen to represent the kissers. I wonder how many people in Warrington can relate to those shapes? Who are they – a Latin Dance instructor and an old fashioned gollywog? Hilda Ogden and Humphrey Bogart? Judging by the way their lips extend way beyond their faces, there’s a chance they could both belong to one of those African tribes that stretch their lips by inserting dinner plates and frisbees.
Only the UK could dream up such nonsense. It’s not April 1st is it?
