Drunk In Japan

(PICTURE: My favorite sign in the Japanese subway.)

Out of all the Asian countries I've been to, Japan had the least amount of puzzling signs in public. Usually when you wander around Asia you see really odd English that you can sort of figure out the meaning of. However in Japan, a country that really values perfection, the signs usually make sense.

One sign that I saw a few times in the Japanese subway was this:

This sign totally makes sense. The message is very clear. However, that doesn't stop it from being really funny to me. I love the Japanese honesty in this. To paraphrase the meaning: It is okay to be a drunk idiot but just do it at home.
