Needless Notice

The sign below is a classic example of wasted energy. It is in effect an oxymoron. The message says the information board is broken, feels poorly, unloved, it is a non-sign because the same message would be just as apparent if it was switched off!

Anyway it has been broken for over three months so doubtless no one takes any notice of it anyway. It reminds me of the classic sign in a kids playground which read “It is forbidden to throw stones at this sign”
