Do you have some amusing examples of two things that are inappropriately next to each other?

For example, in Hinterzarten, there is a large ski-jump. At the bottom, is a cemetery.
In Slough (many years ago) there was a good chinese takeaway. Next door was a vet......

What's in your locale?

In Macclesfield there used to be a fish shop next to a ladies underwear shop.

Near where I live there is a gym next to a Pizza shop that sells the best greasy pizzas you could ever want. I eat pizza.

The cop shop in town is right across from the only bar in town... does that count... definitely makes for some interesting escapes from the bar at 2am.

Going back a few years I was in Hamley's - a world famous toy store in London. Someone with a sick sense of humour had put toy cuddly seals next to plastic baseball bats.

When I lived in Japan I went to a gym over a cake shop. It was always funny to go in the cake shop after a work out to see all the women saying, "well I have burnt off enough to have one of these."

So is phlegm lemon-coloured phegm?

I feel poorly enough without having to listen to (make that "read") your incessant wrangling as to the color of my phle(g)m. It progressed from lemon-yellow the first of the week to green to now being  a nasty greyish color that shows the chest is clearing up - but it is being topped of by the now-infected sinus-produced lemon-yellow stuff that gets into my chest as I sleep. It is the first out of my chest when I wake. Now, my physician needs to address my nasal cavities and associated sinuses (holes) 

Is this enough detail - or do you want me to measure the force of the cough that has my lungs everted half of the time? I feel as if a Viking has come along and given me a bloody eagle, my chest is so raw!

(bloody vultures, don't have their own life? All they can think of to do is discuses the color of an ill person's phlegm so they can have something to do besides play "Count'em" where the rules are simple - count the number of lice one can pick out of the hair of one's head in a 20 minute period. Those lice from the rest of your body or the furniture don't count.)

OH, and the plum color does occur. In the clinical pathology of the suffering I am enduring while you guys offer no support, the capillary rupture in the mucous membranes in the nose, in concert with the occasional irritated chest alvoeoli contributing a little blood to the mix, offers an occasional lugee veined with plum-colored nastiness. Thus, the Germany-residing, British-hating dentstudent does have a point. FOG - is that your all you two can thing of when faced with critical thinking?????

(Besides, it is a compliment, isn't it? (F**kable Older Guy)

Going back a few years I was in Hamley's - a world famous toy store in London. Someone with a sick sense of humour had put toy cuddly seals next to plastic baseball bats.

I do wish you would quit doing these things, Beaver.

It makes Beavers look silly - not that they already aren't rather amusing waddling along with their flat, hairless tail dragging their excrement behind them as the seek birch trees to gnaw on, especially when those places are as foreign to their normal habitat as a London Toy store.

You missed the sign on the animal welfare place saying "Beavers Should Be Left Next Door Down"
