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.
Wrapping paper that I purchased at the local hobby shop. I’m still confused by the intended message.
Packaging from a bubble sword that the girls bought in China. It’s a good thing that it couldn’t eat because we would have had a hard time getting it through customs.
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 wasn’t translated incorrectly; I just thought it was funny that the obvious of having to step up and down the stairs was stated.
