Things that sound vaguely racist

Ok, been cleaning out my hard drive desperately trying to stay distracted until tomorrow’s ultimate presidential smack down of death, came across a slew of pics from various and sundry travels that I have been meaning to post.

While I am sure in their native language or culture they are entirely innocuous, the following four are all definitely borderline racist or at least just make me slightly uncomfortable.

Saw this one in Turkey – cookies for the black man called Negro

Saw this one in Sweden – I am 100% certain you are not supposed to say Jap (or even Japp):

On that note, how are Nips still allowed to be sold as well?

These last 2 are in San Antonio TX.

How do you ding? Ding how?

Any finally, Porky’s?? Really? Do fat people really not get offended by this?

Cocktails for Candidates

From some random guy on Facebook:

This made me smile, unlike most of the real news from this campaign.

And while I am quoting random people off the internet, I am reminded of a post from some random guy on Twitter that went something to the effect of: “Illegal immigration will actually increase under a Trump presidency, but then Canada would send all the Americans back.”

Seen on the train from Madrid to Cordoba

This bathroom sign cracks me up. Look I get that we’re on an internal journey in Spain and that signs in English shouldn’t be required – but to have every language *except* English just seems odd. Especially since every other sign in the country, if it’s not in Spanish only – it’s in Spanish and English… including another sigh in this same bathroom which explains the flush.

More train signs

There’s something very disconcerting about this image. I just don’t trust this guy’s intentions and I sure as hell don’t want him anywhere near my child!

It actually strikes me as kind of like what a changing table for vampires would look like…

Pro-littering rules???

I am sure I must be misunderstanding this but it looks like this sign says it is ok to throw bottles out the window:

I wouldn’t have even commented except I saw this sign:

on the way back from Berlin to Prague, which seems so say to not throw trash in the trash cans!
