Superheroes not allowed?

I’m really puzzled by this sign.

My spontaneous interpretation is don’t run up this wall, but given that only superheroes such as Spiderman can do that, I guess it must be outlawing them instead.

I guess in theory the photographer might also have rotated the picture 90 degrees before uploading it, but then it just gets even more bizarre – something like don’t dance wildly?

Has anybody here got an idea what it might mean?

Hvilket dyr er dette?


Not Sure

Jeg fandt dette skilt på Flickr i dag.

Jeg formoder, den sorte klat skal forestille et dyr, men hvilket?

En blanding af slange og en præriehund? Et krabbemenneske? En deform søstjerne?

Jeg har aldrig været i Panamá, så jeg véd ikke, om det er et hyppigt forekommende væsen dér, men jeg tvivler nu lidt, ikke mindst da kommentarerne på Flickr også er dybt undrende.

Feed your kids to the puma

I think the people who designed this puma encounter guide failed to realise two important facts: (1) People tend to read pictures as a temporal sequence. (2) Not everybody can read English.

If I ignore the text, my interpretation of this sign would be as follows:

  1. Move backwards, holding out your hand to the puma (to make it follow you?).
  2. Then hold up your hands and scream in terror.
  3. Now get your kids and feed them to the puma.
