comment Meaning of “Die Fische kommen oft ungeschoren davon”
You are right, it means the big fish often escape unscathed.. Ungeschoren comes from scheren (to crop). So maybe that's the joke. To crop a fish like a sheep is strange.

comment “Finder will be rewarded” in German?
@Grantwalzer Thats kind of a eye-catcher. It is unusual, so you look for it. They have lost nothing, the look for a new flat. Normally you would offer a Provision - but that sounds too business-like.
