Krötenwanderung

Krötengasse

This is a groaner in German and I have to explain.  A funny synonym for money is Kröten, or toads.  So I found this sign where to find the next branch of the local bank, which happens to be in Toad Lane, particularly fitting for One Word Sunday: money.

The literal meaning of Krötenwanderung is toad migration but it can be used in the  figurative sense: when a stream of my money wanders from my pockets into the pockets of an unscrupulous organisation or company.
