    Rage Against The Civilization Service Norm
    In The Market Of Nether World Street

  22. Frank Burns | 6:48 am |

    Looks like I will have to start my black cat, broken mirror, horse shoe and hex sign shop somewhere else because I like to spit and curse.

  23. Big Fat Cat | 6:49 am |

    BeetleJuice wrote these rules.

  24. Sparky | 7:16 am |

  30. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:59 am |

  31. Someone | 11:29 am |

    The netherworld: no fun allowed.

  32. coffeebot | 1:34 pm |

    Did they mention spitting?

  33. Peter | 1:53 pm |

    The civilisation service norm in Nether World Street?
    Go Dutch !

  34. Me | 2:27 pm |

    It must’ve been those dump kids again spitting and throwing rubbish anywhere

  35. NoizeBomb | 4:27 pm |

    We don’t want no Mothra in our market! The superstitious commodities get it’s attention!

  36. Mr. Wrong | 10:09 pm |

    If you have mildewed food, do not delay — sell it right away. Especially to tourists, who won’t come back anyway.

  37. DragonLady | 3:49 am |

    The new, civilized ROOM 101.

  38. WorrierPrincess | 4:49 am |

    “Do you bare your arms at us, sir?”
    “No sir, I do not bare my arms at you, sir, but I bare my arms, sir,”

  39. Jøshua | 12:38 am |

    So if Im in good quality then it is okay cheat the visitor? Game on!

  40. El-Juan | 11:38 am |

    It’s always been known that The Netherworld has a harsh and elongated set of civilization rules…

  41. Alice | 5:50 pm |

    I didn’t the plants here had to be installed…

  42. Petey | 3:23 pm |

    …or we will call law forcement.

  43. Myself | 10:18 pm |

    Spotted at the Floating Market in Neverwhere.

  44. Myself | 10:21 pm |

    “I’m going to sell this for a lot!…knock on wood.”
    “Hey! You there! Do you see what it says on that sign? No selling the commodity with superstition, hear me? If this happens again, you go to the Nether World.”

  45. Myself | 10:22 pm |

    Ha! I don’t follow civilization service norms! Smash the system!

  46. Myself | 10:23 pm |

    But wait a minute…belief in a nether world is a form of superstition. The market has just outlawed itself.

  47. Myself | 10:25 pm |

    They must not have the Second Amendment in the nether world market. Or they suspend it when serving guests…

  48. Myself | 10:26 pm |

    “But, Officer, I’m six foot eleven! I can’t help but look down on everyone!”
