Being drunk and insane is permissible as long as you look presentable? I guess Charlie Sheen’s all set then.

Does a mother-in-law qualify as baleful biology?

It all makes sense to me except for the picture of a can of Lemon Pledge.
Is dusting forbidden in the Tower?

We’re having bangers and match tonight, followed by baleful biology in an effort to clear the pollution from our inner environment and produce much cubage of peculiarly smelling effluvium.

Look closely at the photos.
I can see prohibiting “articles which can destroy and pollute the inner environment”, but why single out Lemon Pledge?

No interlopers? Oh well… Aunt Bessie, you have to wait here, we’ll pick you up on our way out.

So lets see…tinder, restrictive blade, electric appliance……well, looks like my sub-machine gun is clear to go in with me.

But honey, please leave the microwave in the car.

You’ve posted what appears to be a past incarnation of the sign a few years ago, at https://www.engrish.com/2009/11/entering-the-tower/ . I’m wondering now if both signs still exist, or this one replaced the old one. Evidently, the “baleful biology” phrase still persists.

In my opinion, this is more like ‘Notes for NOT entering the Tower’.
