92. 信号機


An old woman crossed the street against traffic and made it safely to the other side. The policeman was glaring at her.

P:    Didn’t you see the sign?

W:   What sign?

The policeman pointed to the traffic signal.

P:    Don’t walk.

W:   Oh, I saw it, all right. I thought it was an advertisement for
