If you thought the story about British police putting up signs asking citizens to not commit crimes was funny, here’s another good one. In Britain, in hopes of preventing vandalism and other crimes at a tavern, police decided to hire an artist to paint fluffy clouds on the windows. I love this quote at the end of the story: “Now I’m waiting for the police to come round with a giant set of speakers to pump out whale noises to deter criminals. It really wouldn’t surprise me.”
Well, I guess it’s better for business than setting up a swipe-card system to only allow admission to regulars, but somehow I doubt it will be effective at all.
