of course, there is a famous story about romanian language and croatian city Pula. tv speakers have problems when they have to mention Pula at romanian tv because it means - dick

but not to be owe to Romanians, today i have foud similar situation. i was feeding my cat with cat food with duck meat. there was written in more languages "with duck", also in romanian: cu raţă. and it is read "ku rac". explanation of that is in post #218 but now i'm absolutely off topic

No, the sign is in Afrikaans, and that has developed different from Dutch in the last three centuries.
In Afrikaans a "Inligting-Aftrekplaats" is in Dutch formally a "inlichtingenbureau": a place where you can get information.
A "aftrekplaats" doesn't exist in Dutch. But the Dutch verb "aftrekken" (also) means masturbating, while a "plaats" is just the same: a place.
The sign is also quite harmless in Afrikaans - but in Dutch it has quite an alternative meaning...

Wasn't there something with this when some guy was singing the Croatian anthem before England-Croatia? Didn't he make this mistake to say "pula" instead of "bula"?

It means you're owned by the gasoline companies because we all pay a way too high price for gas. Or perhaps the government in European countries
