“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind. Do this, don’t do that can’t you read the sign.”

Not long ago I posted about signs I enjoyed in Provence, France (check it out here). This time, I thought I’d have some fun with our Weekly Photo Challenge “The Sign Says” by sharing some colorful signs from around the world.
We begin with a beautiful horse wearing his very fancy sign of honor – and of course a nod to Ailsa for her “Costume” challenge 🙂
“A horse is the projection of people’s dreams about themselves.”
Now I don’t speak much German, but I can guess why the little fellow below is suggesting one should carry a bag while walking him. For the unimaginative, the little green squares give us a further hint!
“A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles.”
Apparently the proprietors of the Thai fruit shake stand below don’t speak English any better than I speak German 🙂
“Everybody laughs the same in every language.”
And in Chile, some creative entrepeneurs have set up a well-signed “local” drug store complete with English and Japanese translations.
“A strong positive attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.”
From La Boca in Buenos Aires, a colorful vendor of sweets and treats.
“Never trust a skinny ice cream man.”
And who wouldn’t want to take home some lovely Elephant Dung as a souvenir of a fun trip to Thailand!
“A fool looks for dung where the cow never browsed.”
Last but not least, from here in the US, my favorite sign of all – look closely at the sign on the gas pump. Can’t we all relate to this one sometimes?!
