While driving in an unfamiliar part of town this week, my glance fell upon a
roadside sign advertising


Naturally I assumed I'd strayed into a demi-monde area. But imagine my
chagrin when I found that the sign was merely warning motorists against what
us regular people call "speed bumps."

It was an official municipal-type sign, too.
