It is real funny - but in the long run I think you get tired of living there.

it's from London. two reasons:

1. You can see a faint Union Jack on the sign

2. How this works in London: The pimp takes money from intet-anende turist tryner (unknowing tourists), tells him (well, unlikely to be her) to go to a specified address and knock the door, and he will be welcomed warmly by love-you-long-time-ten-dollars. When the turist-tryne appears, knocks on the door, no love-you-long-times appear, but more like an english stiff upperlip opens and says "what do you want?... WHAT?? I BEG your pardon?"

When this happens 5 times a day, you would set up a sign like that

If you head in to the West-end, you'll find several doors with similar signs on them.

Best at

- Hackney has the fourth lowest average level of rainfall in the country and the fifth highest level of sunshine.

Worst at

- Hackney ranks fifth worst for crime, with over 8% of the population likely to have been a victim of crime. It has the highest rate of burglary in London.

- Only 62.6% of those of working age economically active.

- Education results are poor, with only 47.2% of students achieving five or more GCSEs between A* - C*.

- Hackney is in the bottom 15% for life expectancy: men live on average 74.6 years and women 80.8.

- All 19 of Hackneys wards are among the most deprived wards in England

- 35% of Hackney’s population (that’s 28% of its households) lives in overcrowded homes, the third highest level of overcrowding in England and Wales.

- Hackney’s residents have the highest incidence of schizophrenia, the second highest incidence of tuberculosis in inner London, and the number of people infected with HIV has been steadily rising. By 2001 the diagnosed rate was over five and a half times that of the England average and one and a half times that of London as a whole.

I think that even if he is a under-educated sorry ass with violent tendencies, you should still try to get your money back.

no wonder the homes in Hackney are overcrowded; for every person there are at least two personalities
