In Case Your Wondering....

I think you can find a tour guide here. And feel free to ask them as many questions as you like.

Is it just me or are a lot of these signs just hard to understand!? Well, look at the bright gives us a lot of 'Funny English' to write about!

Unclear Store Signs

So, you're in China and need your name written in Chinese. Where do you go? Well, to a professional translator of course. However, when the local professionals have store front signs reading "Write The Name", you may never know they offer translating services. You see, the sign reads "Write the Name", which sounds like they want YOU, the customer, to do the translating...

The Daily Special?

Is this the daily special for a restaurant? No! It's on the menu every day of the week! I'm sure customers avoid this entree!

A Blindfolded Masseuse?

What's next, blindfolded surgeons? I think I will stick with the professionals who watch what they're doing!

Clean up!

This English name is understandable, but I think it is cool:

On a play of words with McDonalds, which means "fast food" to everyone, this fast shower at the train station in Zurich, Switzerland, is called McClean!

Just do it!

This one is actually quite cute! "Just do eeeet!" as a Frenchman would say it.

Which way is up on this sign?

It looks like this sign is normally posted rotated to the right, making the English hard to read...  and I certainly don't know what it means!

No idea...

Again, I have no idea what this is trying to communicate...
