Cunning Swine

Instead of making sure their signs are written in good English, the people in charge of storyboards on the walk from Taronga Zoo to Balmoral Beach have placed misty sheets of plastic over any offensive bits of prose for which they are responsible, in the hope that no-one will notice - and, if they do, that they won't be able to take photographs of the mistakes. In case it is too difficult to read, I should spell this one out - a permanent sign, paid for by taxpayers, states that Japanese submarines were sighted a certain number of 'metres of the coast'. This is not some quickly dashed off memorandum; this is something designed to be read by the public for years. Why on earth didn't anyone read it carefully? Grrr:
