Over the years I’ve written about a variety of odd and interesting museums. While I’m not a big fan of traditional museums, if they seem to be a bit bizarre, I’m probably interested in checking it out.
Here are some interesting museums that I’ve visited:
For those of you unsure of what I am talking about, here are a few details.
Have you ever seen a funny, strange or bizarre sign while wandering around, whether it be at home or while traveling? For me I tend to come across these kind of signs while visiting a new place. Many of the times it turns out that things just might be lost in translation. Either way, I like to refer to these sort of signs as Ridiculous Street Signs.

Last week I came across a really bizarre promotion being ran by Lufthansa Sweden. Lufthansa refers to this offer as a contest but this isn’t exactly the case. I find it more to be a promotion since the prize is a bit gimmicky yet funny at the same time.
Before I explain more I’ll let you know that this offer is only open to Swedish citizens but still worth hearing about.
Here is the promo:
Lufthansa is looking forKlaus Heidi and if you are willing to change your name, they might move you to Berlin for good!
Back in January I was happy to have Rene’s sign photo be the first Contributor- Ridiculous Street Signs post on Michael W Travels. He seems to also enjoy funny and humorous signs and was nice enough to send in another that he noticed while visiting his mother back in his homeland of Sweden.
I was glad to receive the photo and find out some more about the sign. I asked Rene to translate for us and also answer a few questions.
Here is the translation:
Crush Hazard (squeeze risk direct translation)
Dangerous to transport goods in an elevator that does not have an inside door or gate.
Here are a few questions that Rene answered:
MW– When / where did you spot the sign? Rene– Outside the elevator in my moms flat in Gothenburg Sweden
MW– What was you and your wife’s reaction when you saw the sign? Rene– OUCH! What a stupid way to go!
MW– Is there anything else of importance that you’d like to add? Rene– The risk is clearly real for serious injury thus the sign. My mom’s building was built in 1975 and I doubt this style of elevator would be allowed today. I have not seen this type in the states but maybe your readers have some NYC experience and can chime in!
I was curious to see a photo of the elevator but Rene did one better for us. He took a short video to show us how the elevator works.

Thanks Rene for contributing another funny and ridiculous sign!
