I worked for "Studio Filmów Rysunkowych" as an animator's assistant in my early twenties. I had an unspoken pleasure to work alongside those, who invented "Bolek and Lolek". There were also North Koreans employed as animators and assistants there (funny people they were). They let us watch a Korean animated movie once. It was a thrilling story how good bears from the Northern forest fought, apparently bad wolfs from the Southern forest. Bears wore acorn made hats to which small red stars were attached. The movie was perfectly done, I think 24 frames per second, so probably as good as Disney's movies are. Koreans were very proud after presentation and we, we Poles...we just could not open our mouths for another 10 minutes.

Until then, I had never ever seen more intrusive communist propaganda product, apart from Soviet-Russian "how to play chess" book.

Amazing it was. But actually, it was drawn rather for grown ups than children.

I want to show you a multilingual (even if it's now almost rusted) sign in my town, Busto Arsizio, that has Turkish language in it.

It's a sign about the truck customs → http://goo.gl/maps/tBLlj

Is this for real? Because it doesn't seem very political correct.
It may be read:
"Beware of gypsy children, don't run over them"
or
"Beware of gypsy children, they may pickpocket you"

Yeah, well.

Surely "children" in the street would have sufficed.

The sign was put there by some gipsy families

http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2009/0...253552793.html

Google Translate:

Quote:
Several residents of the Roma village of As Rańas (on the outskirts of the city of La Coruńa) set up a signal in the area, with the slogan "Caution, children gypsies on the road", to warn of the presence of children in an area by the passing trucks working in the construction of the AVE and urge them to slow down in the stretch.

Estrella Montoya, one of the residents of the area in which they live five gypsy families, said it was his brother who installed the sign in early summer, when the kids finished the classes, since the lack of a close or a gate on the street where they occur live caused dangerous situations, to which is added the gap of several meters, only after a guard rail road separates the train tracks.

The sign isn't xenophobic, but "gitanos" (gypsies) is unnecessary.

In the Vatican:



(OK, to what extent is this a "road sign" ... it is placed along one of the country's few roads, after all).

In Wales there are many examples of place names which were originally in Welsh but which had their spellings anglicised over the years and which have now been switched back to correct Welsh spellings:

Eg Tywyn => Towyn => Tywyn, Llanelli => Llanelly => Llanelli, and it is government policy to correct all similar cases back to correct Welsh spelling

But now there is now a row about a small village in Gwent called Varteg which the authorities want to revert to the correct spelling of Farteg. It is still pronounced with a hard V but residents think (correctly) that they will become the object of much fun....
