Part of Europe

Part of Europe

I spotted this on one of my many trips to the local council, aka the Bezirkshauptmannschaft (German: why use 7 letters when 22 will do?).

What I am wondering is, why is this the first such sign I have spotted?

I’m off to put this letter in the mail:

Dear Iceland,

I’m sorry that your banks collapsed and now all you have are geysers and Björk. I just wanted to know, where are you going to put your sign once you get EU membership?

Yours sincerely,

Sonja

  1. I too have always wondered why German words are so unnecessarily long.

  2. “I’m sorry that your banks collapsed and now all you have are geysers and Björk”.

    Hilarious! “I miss you,” to quote Björk herself.
