There is a roadside political sign a friend of mine posted on Facebook. I am unable to post it unless I blow his cover.   Anyways it reads as follows:

Erect Mike Hock for U.S. Senate. Will screw YOU in the end. Paid for by the Mike Hock erection committee.

At the local laundromat at the Osterstraße (here's how it approximately goes, I don't fully remember how it was): "Kinder haben nur in Begleitung ihrer Eltern Zustritt in dieses Geschäft". This can be roughly translated like this: Children many only argue themselves into this store if accompanied by their parents. It should have been "Zutritt (Entry)", but thanks to an evident typo, an S popped up and changed the whole meaning of the word.

And for German speakers, another example, this time of a small party politician making spelling mistakes (and I'm talking about mistakes that not even fourthgraders would do) and getting immediately parodied:

Here's one that always gives me a chuckle.... from Havana Cuba.



A Cuba Libre is the name of a very popular drink in Cuba. Literally translated it means "Free Cuba" and is basically a Rum and Coke. What makes this sign funny to me is the obvious political statement of Cuba chasing Uncle Sam with it. The rest of the text translates out as.......

Yo Soy Abstemio
Ingredientes:
Una Revolucion Verdadera
Un Pueblo Que la Defiende
Un Partido Unico
Un Lider Historico

I'm a Teetotaler (or Abstainer)
Ingredients:
A True Revolution
A People That Defend
A Single Party
A Historical Leader

So what happens if you park INSIDE (or outside depending which way you look at it) double yellows?

Here's a classic. Upper sign: Cementary; Lower sign: Shooting range



And in this case, the translation into German is somewhat harsh but straightforward. It literally translates into "shithouse".



And finally, why go to the United States to see California if you can visit Kalifornien (German for California) in Kreis Plön. The town does exist.

In regards to names can I just say that the Swiss first division club "Young Boys" of Bern plays at the "Wankdorf stadium".
You couldn't make it up if you even tried to.

True, but what would go through the heads of the parking police - brown bombers here? Presumably "We got this one whichever way you look at it". Then there would be the opinion of the poor bewildered beak if you got that far.

Great pic.

My guesses:

a> done by a vehicle mounted system and the driver forgot he was painting lines and drove around the bump
b> they thought it was a wheelchair ramp or something?
c> ... spent some time at the local pub before painting that day?
