    Tony- I had an uncle who was of Germanic heritage and worked as an engineer & I remember
    seeing that sign in his home workshop at least 30 or more years ago. . . and it's still funny.
    Tnx for posting! I've also seen it in an automobile shop that specialized in German cars.

    When I worked at UC Irvine and projector #2 threw a fit, I called it an "Ausfart" (not the correct German spelling) which I thought meant a certain body part. Then one show when I had a student guest learning film projection, the machine acted up again and I called it Ausfart, he asked me why I called the projector a driveway?

    Reminds me of the old joke:

    Q: Do you smoke after sex?

    A: I never looked.

    And there was me thinking that what one got up to in one's bedroom was one's own business! Allowed or not, it sounds painful.

    Tim- I've got that same book. I found mine in a used book store about a decade ago.
    I bought it not only for the great photos and tech info about old equipment, but also
    for all the corny cartoons it had inside too. The one below is one of my favorites:

    If you want to learn more than you'll probably ever need to know about circa 1940's vintage
    projection & sound equipment, there's a pretty good scan of the book at the Internet Archive

    Very Late One NIght Last Week On My Way Home, I Saw This:

    I Passed By There Again Earlier Tonight, & I Looked Like This:

    The building being used as a "screen" is The Hobart Building in downtown San
    Francisco. It was designed & built by architect WIllis Polk in 1914, and still has a
    lot of its' original interior architecture intact. One of the screening rooms I work at
    is located inside. When it was built, there was another, shorter, building right along
    side of it, which was torn down some time in the 1960's or 70's- - which is why one
    side of the lower part Hobart Bldg has this 10 or 12 story trapezoidal flat side with
    no windows, which make a perfect surface for this holiday projection project!

    The G key is immediately above the B, so I can see how this happened. What makes it worse is that "bog" in British slang means a toilet.

    This will only make sense if you're familiar with California's Inland Empire, but for those that aren't, suffice as to say that San Bernardino is nicknamed San Bernaghetto by natives of the surrounding settlements.
