So why is this humorous? Could you translate the sign? I can't read Greek or Swahili.

Default To mdchachi: Look out for landslides

Hi Mike,

There's one thing you must know, I can't read Greek or Swahili too. And the way you gave this comment sounds as a considerable insult for the Danish people, because it's Danish.
This is a typical American reaction, maybe an apology would be nice.

It was a joke, a gentle reminder that probably 90% of the views of your photo wouldn't understand it.

Even if I really mistook the sign as Greek or Swahili, how could it possibly be an insult? It would just indicate that I am stupid.

How many Americans do you actually know? Before you start stereotyping people maybe you should meet a few more.

Cheers,
Mike
