European Signs I Woefully Misread

During my recent expedition to Scandinavia and the Baltic, I encountered perplexing signage which I admit, being American and not used to subtle European symbols, got me in more than a few sticky situations. Here are a few:

Do not give flowers.

The American dream (a car, house, and children) is strictly
prohibited.

Jump the shark.

Though dogs and cigarettes are not allowed. Pole dancing, on the
other hand, is fine.

Modern art this way.

Push button for inferno.


In 100 meters, run someone smaller than yourself down and punch
them in the armpit.

I have no idea.

Free hugs within.
