Promises! Promises!
If the Endless Screw has ever started in the past, it would still be screwing. In which case the sign would only have say “Endless Screwing”. Thus, (a) the screw is not endless or (b) there is no screw.

Not the turtles, the snails. The German says: “Attention! Danger! The snails can start at any moment and automatically!”

I wish people in France wouldn’t stereotype themselves like that. And if it mentions turtles or snails in German, it must only seem endless because it takes so long. 🙂

The German one is funny, too.
It says:

Attention! Danger!
Any moment the snails can all of a sudden and automatically warm-up.

In German it says: “Attention! Danger! The snails can at any moment and automatically start”. Well, better watch out for those snails then!

In French it says: “Attention! Danger! The screw can engage itself automatically at all instances”.

Well, at least the translation error is understandable. The French word used for translation is obviously “vis sans fin” – which is “Schneckengetriebe” (snail drive, but they forgot the drive!) in German and literally means – well, a screw without an end, an endless screw 😀

The german snails are likely to start? Lettuce all be careful, then.

A horny young man named Carew
Thought he’d try for an endless screw.
At first it was good
But he finally lost wood
And his right hand was cramping up, too.

♫ Danger! Danger! Be Careful!
Endless screw, when we touch,
When we kiss.
Don’t you want to know how we keep starting fires?
Automatically and at any moment! ♫

@iLock: You’re right, I think Drew even scans a bit better.
I was too busy trying to come up with a last line; I don’t often do limericks. 😉

A Snail drive is a worm screw drive. Usually used in 90degree angle drive gearboxes to get a 30;1 reduction or more

So in French it’s literally “endless screw”, but in German it’s “snail drive” and in English it’s “worm drive”? How bizzarre…

The endless screw can be stopped by the endless cold shower. :p
