(Improved) signage from London's underground

These more useful versions of the signage on the Tube are excellent. I especially like "For a more efficient service please alight at the next stop where a team of heavily drugged sloths will drag you to your destination."

I'm willing to bet most, if not all, of those are real. We used to do something similar like that when we were in our 20s, although messing with signs at escalators in malls and things like that, part of a band publicity stunt.

I like the "Priority seating for people who are overweight, conjoined, or charming snakes."
