My favourite line in German was ever "Halt!" rief der Polizist. "Oder ich scheiße!

If we're including stickers on cars, I was tickled by this one we saw in LA

Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

There's an upside-down speed camera sign on the A435.  I found it strangely discombobulating.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Silliness ensured by the absence of a box of tissues, a nearby bin or indeed a sink.

A colleague and I arrived in Joburg once and the driver at the airport was holding a sign aloft that said EMMA PENIS (for her actual surname, think 'the menace.')

Obviously thereafter she was called Ms Penis (pronounced Pen-iss).

That name would be especially unfortunate in Dundee where the local accent lends new meanings to the foreskinname. "Ehm a" being the local lingo for "I am a" We had a kid at our school called Emma Goodfellow. When her name was read out at registration, there was oft the response, "Eh. So um eh".

Didn't have time for a photo, but an official looking "Do not leave horse manure here" sign on a roadside electrical cabinet with Severn Trent Water branding and contact details.

I assume there's a story to that oddly-specific instruction.  Presumably involving somebody (who?  why???) using the adjoining concrete platform as a convenient (?) place to store manure, to the frustration of some long-suffering engineers who required access to the water-related infrastructure beneath.

ETA: Found it.  No sign, but possible evidence of poo on the concrete?  It's a sewage pumping station, ironically.

It's just occurred to me, pingu, that the list time I saw you on a bike* you were performing that very manoeuvre, having hit some Schienen.

* You later waved to us from the back of Lars' and Monica's car.
