Amusing signs, hilarious fun. Many international signs include off-beat English translations such as "The Yelling Dental Clinic" and "Painful Treatment Center of Cancer." Photos capture special signs such as: The Optimist Club of Cape Fear, Don't Walk In Front of Moving Traffic, Torture Chamber Unsuitable for Wheelchair Users. etc.
"Giggle without leaving home with this album of the most ridiculous street signs from around the globe." -- Washington Post
In 1993, writer, NPR contributor, and Travel Channel host Doug Lansky began capturing funny signs from around the world. Over fifteen years and 30,000 signs later, he shares them with audiences, weaving together hilarious images from his collection with his equally outrageous travel anecdotes and observations.
Both entertaining and enlightening, these signs offer insight on cultural differences, while others simply highlight the comical challenges that all travelers face. Lansky's sign collection - the world's largest - grows daily, some signs appearing in his best-selling Lonely Planet books, and others in his acclaimed open-air exhibit, which was the most visited attraction in Stockholm during its run and is now heading major cities around the world.
