A sense of humour, perhaps?

Neither photograph has been Photoshopped. These are genuine establishments trading in Luanda, Angola.

Portas Janelas e Acessorios translates as Doors Windows and Accessories. I mean, look at it. At least he is being honest.

'You want doors or windows Guv? Give me yer money and I'll Fuck you over'.

"Any sauce with that?"

"Oh c'mon. Or rather don't, I can't wait that long"

I haven't managed to acquire photos of the following two establishments (it can be surprisingly hazardous taking photos in the street here) but there is a store selling car parts called 'Lady Diana Autoparts'. Just don't go there to buy Mercedes brake pads.

Not to be out done, across the road the photo and photocopying stand renamed itself 'Paparazzi'.

I kid you not.

Credit for the photographs go to my very esteemed colleague and intrepid reporter Ed Corbett, who wishes to remain anonymous.


  1. Priceless -thanks for the giggle !

  2. I have a brilliant photo from Burma; the writing on the poster is in Burmese, but if definitely looks like something very offensive in English. I'll see if I can dig it out!

    I did - whilst pretty pissed - persuade a bar owner in Ninh Binh in northern Viet Nam to call his bar Spunk Monkey!


Please feel free to comment, good or bad. I will allow anything that isn't truly offensive to any other commentator. Me? You can slag me without mercy but try and be witty while you are about it.
