Signs in the UAE - Part 2

For years, I have had it as a hobby to collect photos of funny and/or strange signs whenever I came across one. Dubai and the rest of the UAE is one of the easiest places I have been to spot them. The multi-ethnicity and cosmopolitan nature of the city and its inhabitants from literally all corners of the world makes it difficult not to loose things in translation from time to time when trying to convey an otherwise appropriate warning or message in English.
Here are some examples from different parts of Dubai and a couple from Sharjah too:

No public, straight parking.
Tecom Area.

Sharks not allowed either.
Dubai Metro.

Nudes only.
Union Coop Hypermarket, Al Barsha Mall.

No flashy cameras.

Meet the birds up for sale
Sign on Al Rashadiya Road.

4991.5 graduates later...
Exiting Dubai Emirate on Sheikh Zayed Road.

All you need for furnishing the tent of your nomadic bride.
Al Khan area, Sharjah.

Poor lift!
Sharjah Aquarium.
Frisking coming your way.
Near Jebel Ali Club.

The company returns in 3 days.
Al Noor Tower 2, Tecom.

"Waste" clothing charity collection bin.
Discovery Gardens.
