  • The exterminator

    Who do you gonna call when Ghostbusters are on their lunch break?

    [Sydney, Australia]

  • Crocodile Dundee

    Apart from the box jellyfish, there's also the occasional crocodile to avoid on the walkway.

    [Cairns, Australia]

  • Crocodile Dundee

    Don't mess with the croc or it will eat you.

    [Sydney Aquarium]

  • Dear gust

    As seen on the entrance to the restrooms at a restaurant.

    [Luxor, Egypt]

  • The taste of blood

    Do not feed the horse with your own hand, or the poor animal could lose his teeth.

    [Slottskogen, Gothenburg]

  • No swimming

    If you had an idea of go swimming 50 feet from the waterfalls in this fast river, don't. If you do, you're obviously headless, as the sign says.

    [Iguazu Falls, Brazil]

  • No soup for you

    I suppose the NYPD does have humor after all.

    [34th Street, New York]

  • Bo shudda!

    A somewhat odd sign, considering the fact that they have managed to select the only few Star Wars characters that are never armed.

    [Sci-fi convention, Gothenburg]

  • Bones in the stars

    In translation: 'Astrology kit - dig out your own dinosaur'. I hope they meant Archeology?

    [Haga Nygata, Gothenburg]

  • Hellboy

    Believe it or not, but this is actually one of the many surrealistic paintings on the wall of a kindergarden. Are they implying that only hellspawn are permitted?

    [Grönsakstorget, Gothenburg]

  • Who do voodoo

    We found this sign near a waterfall, telling people to stay away from the practice of voodoo here.

    [Ubatuba, Brazil]

  • Pizza the hut

    Well, we're all hungry at times.

    [Market Street, San Francisco]

  • Random exclamation

    I don't know what it means, but I'd rather not pass it with the car.

    [A closed street in Paraguay]

  • Feed me, Seymour

    To feed the wild aligators is another no-no. They could get stomage ache if they eat you.

    [Lousiana swamps]

  • Fierce and furry

    Go ahead. I won't tell anyone.

    [Lake Karapiro, New Zealand]

  • Unknown liquids

    I would feel a lot more comfortable if they hadn't put those quotation marks around the word 'water'.

    [Delsjön, Gothenburg]

  • The public crook

    This is probably the most photographed doorway by Swedes in all of Berlin. Would you buy a video from a place with a sign reading 'What a crook'?

    [Unter den Linden, Berlin]

  • Guardians of the night

    Bloodsucking vampires? Walk this way.

    [Skansen, Stockholm]

  • Keep off the wing

    Some bridges are worse than others.

    [Dangerous sailing in Ofotsfjorden]

    In translation: 'Gift from Kreml'. Above this toilet seat there was a large framed photograph of the Swedish queen. What would Dan Brown have to say about this?


  • Welcome to Alcatraz

    The friendly sign at the entrance harbor on the island.

    [Alcatraz, San Francisco]

    [Chocolate Fish Café in Seatoun, New Zealand]
