There have been several "Favorite Picture" posts. Just curious....what's your "funniest" picture.
My entry is this shot in Burgos. It was supposed to be of my wife and I goofing off with an ice cream. However the background was ....um....unintended.
I laughed that even the store sign on the upper left is announcing what is below.

Not only can translating something be difficult but translating the translation can be too.

A sign on the Camino Frances where it descends to Molinaseca:

I would translate the Spanish sign to an American sign as:

Attention cyclists
Steep slopes next 10 miles
Proceed with caution

This was on the Portugese Camino about 4 days out of Porto. We laughed and laughed at the weird randomness of this.

Well we thought it was pretty random to have a doll stuck in a tree, seeing how it was the only one we saw, let alone the clown wired to its' arm.

Strange! I saw similar dolls in Gallicia, tied up to a tree. I thought they were used against naughty birds, but maybe I'm mistaken?

Forgive my weird sense of humour. I thought it was someone with their own take on some of the little grottos that you can come across... and I would have laughed too, such a focussed expression on the doll’s face!

From my 2016 Caminos...

I just had to take a photo of this guy on Praza do Obradoiro. He came in sweated Che Guevara T-shirt and then he changed into a T-shirt with Pope on it. Imagine...

Those two were taken on Camino Ingles. If you have any explanation please feel free to respond :)

Sorry about the blurry image - no fancycam but just an elderly iPhone...

I really loved these signs. The upper one is sort of funny ('keep your shoes on'), but the lower one is priceless: 'we don't have wifi; talk to eachother'. Such great advice... It may not really come as a surprise the photo was taken somewhere along the last stretch of the Camino Francés (which, by the way, I enjoyed thouroughly - even after the relative peace and quiet on the considerably less crowded Camino del Norte and the complete serenity of the practically deserted roads leading me to St. Jean Pied-de-Port - as if doing three different caminos in one go; four if you count Santiago-Finisterra. Ah, memories...).
