Sign that automatically turns to face the wrong way so that people aren't encouraged to venture into Thorpeness during a power-cut, where they'll have to listen to the inevitable person described below...
There was a power cut yesterday. From eight-fifteen until eleven forty-five. Irritating for everyone to a greater or lesser degree.
And then there was the inevitable person walking around volunteering information about a previous power cut that lasted three weeks and started right in the middle of their dialysis. Apparently, they had to resort to the petrol-syphoning method through the tube from their freshwater aquarium pump.
I may have made up that last bit.
