I like the following one:

Reisender Huhneraugenarzt (Umlaut at u)
This translates as: "Traveling chicken oculist"

Maybe the chicken crossed the road but could not see the oncoming car. <g>
Huhnerauge (Umlaut at u) is not a chicken eye, but a clavus/corn. The
Huhneraugenarzt was helping people with a clavus on the foot.
