Germany has some pretty fun signs for various things. Their “Exit” sign is nothing more than a stick figure running toward a door. At the train station, the “Watch where you walk” sign was a stick figure losing his balance on a train platform with a train approaching in the distance. Our favorite so far, though, is the sign for the U-Bahn:
It’s more or less a stick figure walking down a flight of stairs. But they’ve classed things up a little bit by putting a hat on him. And if you look closely you’ll notice two different images. Is he casually walking down the stairs with his arms swinging by his side? Or — as we prefer to see him — is he really a man wearing a cape and creepily walking down the stairs with both hands out in front of him?
It’s like one of those illusion puzzles.
