Here is sign we came across while walking around the city of Florence, Italy.  From afar, it looked like a “no entry” sign. But when we looked closer, there is someone carrying the horizontal bar. So, does this mean there is construction up this road? We looked beyond the sign and there was no such work. Can someone enlighten?

We came across this sign in Prague, Czech Republic.  Okay, you can argue that someone scratched off the man’s head to make it look like a headless worker. But what about the amputated leg? And why is one arm holding his back?

This block of stone has the word “Toileta” inscribed on it.  We looked it up and could not find if this is a tombstone or memorial for someone.  Is someone’s toilet buried there?

Then, there was this sign outside a building entrance not far from the Brandenburg Gate. Shhh!

    You have really found some amazing signs. My favourite is definitely the no entry turned into someone carrying the horizontal bar. Great work – and well seen and captured on your part. They all gave me a good laugh.
