Be careful - it's a gift! (English/German)
One year when my German teacher, Herr McCarley, was living in Germany, he once opened the door to a very nervous looking postman. The postman very slowly and carefully handed Herrn McCarley a package. His parents had sent him a Christmas present and did not want him to open it early, so they wrote "gift" many times on all sides of the package. What they did not know was that Gift is German for "poison". The postman very shakily said, Vorsicht ... Gift, careful ... poison, and left as soon as he could.
