More silly signs

This time from the British Museum (which confusingly is in one pokey and overcrowded little corner of Britain along with just about everything else that's meant to be "national")...

This one was on a rail surrounding a large ornamental hole in the floor. What they meant, of course, was "Beware of the Drop!" rather than telling us that there was danger so we should drop. I wonder what would happen if someone with Asperger's (or something) took it literally and dropped, then sued the museum....

And again. This one was on a door. Presumably forcing it open quickly would be fine...
