Signs of the times

I enjoy looking at advertising in different countries - signs, menus, posters even graffiti.
Often the meaning or subject in a foreign language can mean something completely different, or the English spelling or meaning is not quite there. I have loads, here are a couple to start with.

Umm, shortened, usually, to ‘‘Llanfair PG’’: the PG is VERY IMPORTANT!!
This is because there are COUNTLESS villages throughout Wales called ‘Llanfair’ (Church of St Mary).

A sign near my home in Switzerland that caught my eye:

“Careful - Falling Goats”. It’s next to a bridge that the goats like to fight over. I haven’t seen a falling goat yet but I have seen a goat trying to push another one off the side.
