Lost in Translation – Part II

Here are a few more pictures of expressively challenged signs and messages that we’ve stumbled across at jobsite and during our travels. After our last collection of pictures (Lost in Translation), we found that there’s a lot of fun looking for blunders, gaffs, and mangled messages in signs. In fact, it’s turned into a little obsession for us to find and collect pictures of near and completely lost translations.

Made in China. Wrapping paper that I bought at the hobby shop to wrap a baby gift. I'm not sure what it meant to read, but it, clearly, wasn't translated properly.

This is the packaging from bubble swords that the girls bought in China. I'm glad the toys can't eat because I didn't want to return to jobsite with pets.

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when the sun went out? The girls were watching an episode of Spongebob Squarepants when the world came to an end.

This message appeared on the TV screen after the connection was lost. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when the sun went out? The girls were watching an episode of American Ninja Warrior when the world briefly came to an end.

This message isn't translated incorrectly; I just thought it was funny that the obvious was stated.

      Hey, Yesim! I replied to your email a few days ago. It was hung up in the out box for a few minutes, but it looked like it eventually made it through. If you didn’t receive it, let me know and I’ll resend it. 🙂
