Off beat "tattoos"

Now, this is quite a silly twist on some of the "tattoo" requests that are (too) commonly seen. I've been thinking about the time someone asked for a "meaningful" tattoo and got "Exit Only" inked onto her rear in Chinese.

Now, what would be really funny tattoos in foreign languages?
(I prefer non-Latin Characters, but anything is great.)

I was thinking about this because I wrote some Japanese Kanji (左側だ[1]) on the back of my hand in liquid eyeliner, and had it mistaken for a tattoo.

[1] The internet says it means "left hand" but I may be am probably mistaken.

Deutsch Heute

Help! Is there anyone out there who has taken an introductory German course with the workbook for Deutsch Heute (8th edition)??? I am missing vital pages!

Missing pages I've noted so far:
1-33
121-131

If you have them, and if it's possible, could you scan them and send them to me? Or if you have a pdf of the book or whatever, that'd be awesome, too.
Pass it along if you know someone who's got 'em... please?

I bought the book used, and now I know why I it was so cheap.

I'm cross-posting this to everywhere I can think to do.
