[semiotics] No Durians!!!


Singapore is a city famous for its strict control of public behavior with heavy consquences. Submitted for your approval: A standard set of warning signs for public transporation:

Yes. They do not allow durians on public transportation in Singapore.

You know what they say: once you outlaw durians, only outlaws will take them on the transit.

Notably there is no published fine for carrying a durian on the transit. As anyone who's smelt a durian would attest, death would be too good for such a person.

For what it's worth, the Singaporean dollar is worth about 75 cents American these days (and even it has been gaining on the US dollar lately).
