Along with that ephemera, I also found myself snapping pix of strange and humorous signs (most notably, Austria's surreal Freedom From Fear advertisement for the Polizei). Problem is, I haven't had an excuse to share them. Thus, for no particular reason, here are some goofy signs I saw in Europe. Set your snark detectors on high!
|German exclamation points |
make child's play look mildly disturbing. Like,
aren't those the girls from The Shining?
|Yes, I agree. It's a bad idea to enter the railway facilities.|
But why make the guard look like Gort from
The Day the Earth Stood Still?
|Maybe it's my Puritan heritage speaking, but sometimes a sign can be|
a little too iconic, you know?
|Warning: This elevator occupied by slackers with nothing to lose!|
|Big Brother is watching. Watching you drink!|
|Not here. Not here. Nope, not here either. And God help you if you stop here!|
