More signs: Translating into American, this is funny

Another post on signs in the UK and Ireland that I find amusing.  You might need to be familiar with American English to understand why this is so amusing.

The window is appalled.

Given this blog is supposed to be about politics, how is this sign remotely political?  It was posted in the tearoom of Kilmainham Gaol.  Pronounced “Kill-main-em jail,” for Americans or anyone else who doesn’t read anglicized Irish.
