I mean, I suppose I should really be off researching a challenging question posed by Bacchus in his recent post on twittering but before I get to this, I just have to share an image that showed up in a routine feature in the UK newspaper The Telegraph as part of their humorous “Sign Language” series of curious images found by Telegraph readers abroad.

The Italian text means something like “service here without tails.” Beyond that, I do not know what it means.

All I could think about was that it served as a fine graphical illustration of a point made by Bacchus in a classic post of his.

Bonus: I found this essentially at random following a link at Pharyngula which leads to a Telegraph story the interest of which is almost transparent for an ErosBlog audience.
