Or you are not allowed to cross the road. (PS. Trust me, you’d be better off blind when you cross the road in Thailand)

If I ever left my house without my walking stick
Well, it would be something I could never explain
Oh, the thing that makes me click on lovers lane
Would go for naught, if I were caught without my cane

There must be something really ugly up ahead. Or else a poorly guarded government secret.

Why do a blind cross the road? To be on the other sight.

In South Brissie there is a sign at one of the bus stops:

BLIND PEOPLE ALIGHT HERE.

Which gives rise to a few questions:

1. How do they know if they are blind?
2. Am I expected to throw a blind person off the bus at this stop?
3. As I have never seen a blind person burning at this stop, am I expected to light one up?
4. If after throwing a blind person off the bus, should I throw his
Labrador after him?
5. Should I make all of the above redundant, by killing the Bus-driverm and setting fire to the bus?

@Marum. It is the latest game craze. You wear an isolation suit, and you use that long pointed thing, to spike all those little silver eyes that glare at you from the floor.

I’m sure there’s a Marxist political message in that sign somewhere.
