Signs: No Fishing In Toilets In Saudi Arabia

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

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.
