Beware of the rug comes from the time when a Beware of the Dog sign literally took on a new look. Now we see them everywhere and often forget to write them down and they are lost forever. They are mostly auditory but can be visual as well. Part spoonerism and part just serendipitous pairings they can be quite funny or just dumb. It is hoped that this blog will help preserve some of them as well as provide family history stories, vintage postcards, artwork, stories, music, Rob and miscellaneous topics.

A couple of recent examples:

  • Grill (as in BBQ) in the rain became Gorilla on the train.
  • A box of magnets became a pox of maggots
