The sign is to express proof that times are indeed tough for the superhero set. Because we can trust that the facial depiction is accurate – police sketch artists are seldom false – we can correctly surmise that the Silver Surfer, of Marvel Comics fame, has resorted to a life of shameless beach thievery in order to support his lavish lifestyle.

Danger Sign in Norway
Geography buffs know that Scandinavia is a perilous and precarious land. We have no doubt that a casual drive in the country could spell disaster if you read the directions “turn left at the fjord” the wrong way. But just how blind are Norwegian drivers that they require a sign such as this?
