Poor Interpretations of International Signs That Will Make You Giggle
The fire extinguisher sign was what started it all. Standing on a subway platform in Copenhagen, I wondered what the half circle was about. Kinda looked like a taco…
We are fortunate to live on a planet with a multitude of different people and cultures. Try as we might, there’s bound to be some miscommunication. This is a humorous attempt at purposefully misinterpreting the signs from several different countries. Hopefully it brings a chuckle to you during these times when travel is verboten. Oh, and it should probably be said: DO NOT TAKE THESE SERIOUSLY!
