Images of Canberra: jail humour

By Kerces 27 February 2007 7

I drove past the Hume jail site today and noticed that someone with a sense of humour was in charge of putting up the safety signs around the place.

I drive past the new gaol each day on my way to work. It reminds me how fortunate I am not to be staying there.

Actually, snahon, according to the Macquarie Dictionary (usually regarded as the authority on Australian English) there are two alternate spellings: gaol and jail.

Don’t be pedantic with a pedant.

Here in Australia, it is spelt gaol.

I just get the feeling that no-one on the construction site actually noticed the irony and put up the sign as a standard “look we do care about our employees”.

For the sake of Jerrabomberra residents, it is not a jail site. It is the Alexander M. Rehab Centre with lots of naughty stools (um), (and apologies to Drawn Together).
