Signs: No Fishing In Toilets In Saudi Arabia

This week the NYT asked readers to send in their best strange signs from abroad, and this was the result. Some highlights?

#24: When in Saudi Arabia, it’s okay to sit on the toilet, but please refrain from fishing in it, no matter how tempting your catch may be.

#9: When in Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park, South Africa, be careful when navigating downhill in your wheelchair, you’re likely to land in the mouth of an alligator.

#41: When checking into this hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia, please remember that handguns, grenades and heroin are all prohibited. If this is a problem, head to the hotel next door with laxer policies.
