Why is the sign so much whiter and brighter than anything else in the photo? More importantly, why is a sign in Dresden written in English?


#3

Because it's in the Anglo section of town


#4

Starting from EUR 35.00 + VAT. Job openings for the young and adventurous! LOL

25 to 30 minutes to get my car washed? I'm not going to make it to the erotic barber shop before they close.


#6

the best part about erotic car washes is all the free "armor all" you get at the end! stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye


#7

I do not think that word means what you think it means.


#8

Is that the Master Bates' Motel in the background?


#9

If you didn't give me the location I might have picked Detroit.


#10

Well, that's handy. I'd been wondering where I could get my erotic car washed.


#11

It's surprisingly common there. I lived there for about a year and saw ads like this all the time. I'm pretty sure I've walked by this particular place a time or two; it looks very familiar.

Marketing 101: Nowhere on this sign does it designate there will be attractive and nubile young women, and even then, it should be pointed out that "attractive" is a subjective term.

I shudder at the thought of what lies in wait...

edit: Okay, I admit I'm a fan of Oglaf.

This gives me chills. When my Uncle passed away his will specified that I had to spend the night in an Erotic Carwash or forfeit my inheritance. I still have nightmares about the waxing.

Because English is somehow perceived as special, fresh and alluring.

Personally, I can't stand it. Annoying as hell and when I'm writing German I try my best to weed out unnecessary anglicisms.

“Importing” words is just fine, of course, but I think most of it is just en vogue [sic] because of bad dubbing. The translators just try anymore.

Look like Koenigsbruecker Strasse to me, around Industriegelaende. Pretty sure I passed this on a hike last year.


#16

Is it closed? My car is really dirty...
