Biting trout

Posted by Richard on November 2, 2007

The other day, I was looking through the online symbol library provided by the German technical documentation firm CPTec. In the warning symbols section, I happened across this amusing posting, a "watch for biting trout" sign:

Creator Günter Ratz entitled it "Warnung vor Hommingberger Gepardenforelle" ("Warning: Hommingberg Cheetah Trout"). A high-quality EPS version is available at the link above.

The cheetah trout is an imaginary species (and Hommingberg is an imaginary place) that figured in a German SEO (search engine optimization) competition a couple of years ago. Go here for details (in German) and a lovely picture of the fish.

Those wacky Germans. 😉
