    Signs of all sorts. Must be a tangible sign not something such as “signs of aging or signs of spring”.

    ATTENTION: THIS THEME BROUGHT TO YOU BY YUGOBOY. ENJOY.

    “Enter (or Exit) Here” was exactly 3 months ago (Apr 10), but it was specifically directional signs. This one is much more broad in scope, and at the time, we had tons of repeat themes in the Hopper and few original ones.

    Not a problem for Fark.

    This one’s kind of borderline as “fag” and “faggot” are filtered words on Fark, like shit and fark. However, the word isn’t yelling-in-your-face huge, and with the money given in pounds and menu options, there’s clearly a different meaning/context, so I’ll leave it up to you.

    It definitely means “meatball” in Britglish.

    Fuck. I fucked that up. I’m so sorry. Will get it posted today. It’s been science camp and anniversary week this week, and I’m all turned around.

    World English Dictionary
    faggot or esp ( US ) fagot 1 (?fĂŚ??t)

    — n
    1. a bundle of sticks or twigs, esp when bound together and used as fuel
    2. a bundle of iron bars, esp a box formed by four pieces of wrought iron and filled with scrap to be forged into wrought iron
    3. a ball of chopped meat, usually pork liver, bound with herbs and bread and eaten fried
    4. a bundle of anything

    — vb
    5. to collect into a bundle or bundles
    6. needlework to do faggoting on (a garment, piece of cloth, etc)

    [C14: from Old French, perhaps from Greek phakelos bundle]

    I found that in Europe, where this is appears to be from, faggot or fag tends to mean a cigarette. Hence, since this doesn’t appear to be derogatory in anyway, I would let it stand. 🙂

    I wish that I knew why the forum created so many copies of the same thing. Weird.
