Spotted in large American chain bookstore in UK

A sign reading:

For health and safety reasons, food and beverage will no longer be permitted in the children’s section of this store.

Um, does that remind anyone of anything? Post-9/11 in the US, when strange and unrelated things were commonly being out-lawed for “security reasons”? What can I say, I’m guessing after all the H. Potter madness there were a few too many books splashed with Starbucks’ newest fruity summer frappuccinos… but hey, that’s just my guess. The UK sure loves their “health and safety” laws more than anywhere I’ve ever been.

  1. Makes me think they are afraid that someone will spill, someone else will trip, and they will be sued. Can’t do that elesewhere in the bookstore, when they are selling coofee right there…
