Omnibus tomfoolery

Three very wordy posts in a row there. Sorry. So here's a bit of light relief. Look at the picture below:

It's a badly-drawn bus. But my question is ... which direction is the bus travelling? From left to right? Or right to left?

To see the answer, click on the comments for this post.

Primary school children all over the UK were shown this picture and asked the same question as you just were. 90% of them gave this answer: 'The bus is travelling left to right.'

When asked to explain their answer they said: 'Because you can't see the door to get on the bus.'

Ouch. I feel so thick.

(Oh, and for my European and American readers, the answer would, of course, be right to left as the doors are on the other side.)
