What do you think this sign is trying to tell you? I think it’s pretty obvious. “Adults and children are forbidden to walk hand in hand with each other from here onwards.” or “You are leaving the adults-and-children-walking-hand-in-hand-zone”. Obvious indeed.

You know how certain words in one language need to be translated to a lot of words in another language?

So I think this description of the sign (“Perill de caigudes”) means this:
“If you step over this wall, and thus fall off the cliff all the way to the bottom, and if you happen to have smashed your head as a result of that, you probably won’t be able to feel the arm indicated by the arrow.”

What do you think the sign says?

Gracies

Taken: 19 July 2007, Barcelona, Spain.

This street sign says “gracies”.
Now, I’m pretty sure it means “thanks”.

But what is the green on white street sign thanking for?
Is it thanking for dog owners and their pooping dogs?
Is it thanking the dog for pooping and their hunchback masters?
Is it thanking for people pointing out dog poop?

What do you think the sign means?
My first thought actually was:
“Now that is an ambiguous sign.
It can be faulty interpreted as ‘thank you for touching the poo.'”
