no food use enquiries


this sign has a brilliant phrase (in brackets) “no food use enquiries”.

perhaps they are plagued with people phoning them to ask if Eggs make good hats, or whether you can stand on a potato to reach a lightbulb, or if you can use custard to artex ceilings, or if it’s appropriate to threaten a policeman with a runner bean.

what food use would you enquire about ?
