Domestic Violence Secretariat

I'm two weeks behind (at least one post a week). I'll get to the reason in another post. What I got today had me in stitches this morning and I just got to share.

The Domestic Violence Secretariat is in the Osu Cemetery (I am so serious). You know how I've been going on and on about deadly billboards, well, this billboard (if you can call it that) is the embodiment of deadly.

The white wall is the wall of the cemetery, the trees are in the cemetery and the Domestic Violence Secretariat signpost has a red arrow underneath pointing into the cemetery.
This has got to be a joke. If it is, I'm not 100% sure it's funny (doubt if victims of domestic violence will find it funny).

I use this route every morning but I'd never paid attention to the signpost advertising the Domestic Violence Secretariat up until this morning.

I'm just curious. Does it mean something? Are victims as good as dead so the secretariat might as well be in the cemetery? Or is the secretariat really situated in the cemetery with live people as workers?

I wonder if the secretariat gets live visitors.

As for the call to advertise here, I figured there'd be ads next to a cemetery on funeral insurance, coffins and related stuff. And then I saw an ad advertising Stephanie Benson's album. Ummmmmmm... are the songs dirges or for people about to die or for dead people or something?

Don't mind me. I'm just wondering why I would want to mount an ad right next to a cemetery (aren't there other available spots?). Or maybe more people look that way (making it an ideal spot to advertise) and I am just being someway. If more people do look that way, is there a reason? Or is it just an open available spot to advertise? Maybe the rates to advertise right next to a cemetery are cheap.

Again, my mind in overdrive. But seriously, a secretariat in the cemetery, very curious.


  1. Hahahahahahahahaha like seriously? Osu cemetery?? Whos gonna go there.. Efua easy ooo.. A.M.A workers might see this post.. The dead need music too right?? lol

    1. Yep, seriously. They listen to music too? (definitely shocked).

  2. this is hilarious!!! the arrow pointing to the cemetery? I guess its an error that someone needs to call their attention to.

    1. Totally hilarious. The error (if it is one) really must be corrected ASAP (it's scary).

  3. Lol I think it's like a warning. That a lot of victims are now there at the cemetery
    But either way, it is extremely hilarious

    1. I hope that's what it means and I hope people get it too, otherwise, it's too hilarious.
