Obey the Sign

The funniest part of the Eddie Izzard show on Saturday was not even part of the show. While everyone was taking their seats, ushers were walking around holding up little 12" square signs with a picture of a camera with the universal "no" circle and slash through them.
That's it.
Just walking around holding them up. No interruption of the Tom Jones music over the P.A. for an announcement. No reminder as you had your ticket torn.
Just a guy walking around holding a laminated piece of paper with a cartoon on it.
It wasn't even a red circle with a line through it!
I really wish I had my camera with me to take a picture of the guy "telling" me not to take a picture. Dang!

Mostly Unrelated Anectdote:
On of my favorite gags from the incredibly uneven but likeable show The Critic is one in which Jay gets into a cab and asks the cabbie a question. The cabbie replies in a thick accent: "Look at sign," and thumbs to a sign that reads: "Driver speaks only three words of English."
