Instagram Photo: Saying No to No?

Saw this at Great World City and Meg from Nelson said something that 'aha' me.

There's a No and they cancelled the No.
So, this sign is saying, You can smoke, you can have pets, you can carry a camera, you can tout etc... right?

Saying No to No?

Yup, many places like to put No signs in Singapore.
Even most kids in Singapore, when you ask them anything, their standard answer is "No"!

Haha! Although we know what the sign is trying to say, this can still mislead others.

Ha! Send them back to primary to re-learn maths.

But what they put down there actually makes sense if you think deeper...

First sign: -ve + -ve = +ve

Second regulations: -ve

Hence, 1st sign (+ve) + 2nd regs (-ve) = -ve
So the final answer is still "no".

Apparently, you guys need to go back primary too!
Ha! I'll come back and play with you guys next time lah.
Be good!
