Funny Signs in India


At the SUT Hospital off Pattom Road near where I lived, there were several hilariously ridiculous signs. First, the new SUT Royal Hospital advertising ‘Super Specialty’ services.

I’m still outraged by the fact that bathrooms suck. There’s no toilet paper and there’s a surcharge to relieve the bladder. Why not find a quiet bush and do your business there?!
