I didn't write the sign. It was at the entrance to a shop in Tombstone Arizona.

    That sign is so very wrong.

    It should read, "Politicians, bugger off!"

      You are so right. Although I might use another word in place of bugger. Not appropriate for signage though I guess. Thanks for commenting.

    I reminds me of that quote: Politicians and diapers should be changed often and for the same reason.

      Gary, I think Australia has changed its leaders rather frequently in recent years, but changing a diaper might be more effective...

    Akin to the sign at a bungy-jumping place: "Politicians jump free, no strings attached." [Not sure whether this sign actually exists/existed.]

        Always pleased to make you laugh. As a pedant, I should probably add "... jump FOR free..."

          I guess so but I think it works without "for". Good enough, but good enough is not good enough for a pedant though is it? :-) I must admit I had to look up the word pedant. So not only are you making me laugh, but you are educating me as well. And all this for FREE!!! Right? :-) Well send me the bill if you must. I must also thank you for giving me that word because I believe it describes me perfectly as well. Not easy being a pedant is it?

            Oh wait. On reading further the definition of pedant, I now choose not to be one, if I was one. Certain aspects do not apply me thinks. :-) I doubt if the more negative aspects as described apply to you as well.

              You probably thought "pedant" was an upmarket form of "peasant"??? Yes, the teaching is all free. Definition on Mac's built-in dictionary: "a person who is excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with displaying academic learning." Well, academic learning does not apply to me. What is your problem? I sometimes use the word "perfectionist" instead of pedant, but that hints that I achieve things that are perfect and I am too pedantic to claim that. – I also sent CAS people pull out the dictionary when I described some Australian plant or animal in photos of mine to be "endemic". – Speaking of politicians, almost breaking news: Your Mr Pompeo and his entourage crossed the Sydney Harbour Bridge an hour or so ago. Only nine plain vehicles and four vehicles with flashing lights (apart from all the police on motorbikes with flashing lights) in the motorcade. Oh, and a chopper watching from above. During his recent visit, the head of Papua New Guinea did not even have an ambulance in his motorcade!

                Here is the definition I saw that excludes "us" from truly being a pedant. "A pedant is a person who is excessively concerned with formalism, accuracy, and precision, or one who makes an ostentatious and arrogant show of learning." That from Wikipedia, but I saw it from numerous other sources as well regarding the arrogant show of learning. So I think you and I can claim the firs part of the definition, but not being arrogant about how much we know. Right? That definition is about two different people in my mind. So there should be two different words to describe those characteristics. I would prefer if pedant was simply the first description, and the last part really has a word to define that person already. Asshole. ;-) Ok, well sometimes I am the latter, but aren't we all - sometimes. I am proud to say that I would not have to look up endemic. Oh oh, now I'm borderline making an arrogant showing of my learnin'. Regarding the pompous Pompeo parade, we Americans live in fear you know. Papau New Guineans apparently do not.

                  I see the problem now. We need a new description that is bang on then! Not feeling it right now, though. Keep up yer learnin', it serves you well. – There is nothing to fear Down Under, the crocodiles have eaten all the snakes, and the sharks have eaten all the crocodiles, or something like that. – I did mention somewhere else that you may delete any of my comments!!!
