Warm, wet & wonderful

The funniest signs are the ones that aren’t meant to be funny at all. Just spent a weekend at the Citrusdal Baths. Amazing place – an old Victorian hot springs resort, where for $15 a person per night you get to swim in this amazing, warm, non-sulphorous swimming pool of hot mountain water.

Warm, wet and wonderfully. No pussy-footing around this one. Just in case you thought warm baths might be cold, dry and horrible.

The Afrikaans marketing slogan means “hidden away/secluded paradise”. Although “steek” can be funny all on its own, cause it also means the verb “to fuck”. The English one had us all in regressive hysterics: “Warm, wet & wonderful”.

And then there’s this sign in the restaurant.

And to cleanse your visual memory, I’d like to offer this photo of taken out of the window of the place where we stayed.

The view from the lounge of our self-catering flat.
