Surely "the train"?

Or '10000000 volts'?

(What is the voltage of a tube line, anyway?)

Yeah, cos there's a massive problem at the moment with the teenagers slipping over because they think it's cool. What the fuck?

I bet people trip over because they're reading that poster and trying to work out what the fuck it is on about instead of looking where they are going.

It's a variation on a joke I must have heard first at least a quarter of a century ago:

"What's the last thing that goes through a fly's mind when it hits a windscreen?

Its arse".

Not that its the height of comedic genius in the first place, but the TfL version loses something in the translation. Such as the point.

I realise I'm a semantic pervert, but my problem with this isn't the weakness or unoriginality of the joke or even the assumption that people are ignorantly falling over for a laugh, but the confusion of the mind with the brain. We might ordinarily think of the mind as being instantiated in the brain, but the brain is what gets smashed to pieces on the floor, not the mind.

I look forward to hearing South West Trains's response to your strongly worded letter of complaint.

They're all type physicalists, so naturally they'll disagree.
