Home » General News , featured Bad anime subtitles can be funny, bad real world translations have their own special humor aswell. These pictures were compiled by the nytimes ; Fortified by an army of 600 volunteers and a politburo of adroit English speakers, the commission has fixed more than 10,000 public signs (farewell “Teliot” and “urine district”), rewritten English-language historical placards and helped hundreds of restaurants recast offerings. The campaign is partly modeled on Beijing’s herculean effort to clean up English signage for the 2008 Summer Olympics, which led to the replacement of 400,000 street signs, 1,300 restaurant menus and such exemplars of impropriety as the Dongda Anus Hospital — now known as the Dongda Proctology Hospital. Gone, too, is Racist Park, a cultural attraction that has since been rechristened Minorities Park.
Hey there Engrish fliends! It's with no small amount of sadness that I have to say we are no longer updating Engrish Funny with new content. Don't fear, however!
Why does Engrish have such a fascination for us native speakers? Personally I find it a huge source of amusement that in Japan - a nation ostensibly obsessed with learning English - that there's so much "English" visible which is not only wrong, but often hilariously so. This isn't poking fun at other people's speaking abilities - no doubt I make enough howlers in other languages myself - but at the sheer flood of weird words which wash over you in Japan. ( For a view of the world of linguistic cockups from the other side of the divide, see the Orientalish section ) ... but if you are, don't worry: Sanity Soap is provided for all your mental health needs. (Seen in the gentlemen's facilities in a rather grotty izakaya near Shinagawa )
Qui n'a pas déjà eu le fou rire (ou un haut-le-coeur) en lisant un menu de restaurant écrit dans un français ou un anglais approximatif ? Si ça ne vous ai jamais arrivé, allez vite faire un tour dans le Quartier chinois de Montréal... Vous allez rapidement comprendre ce que je veux dire. C'est absolument délirant la quantité de coquilles qu'on peut trouver. On en voit dans les menus, mais sur les produits alimentaires aussi.

I noticed on my most recent trip to Singapore that there seems to be a lot of mainland Chinese on that little island state lately. Nothing against them of course. But I do find it fascinating that so many of them mainland Chinese can be found at virtually all levels of society in Singapore: in coffeeshops taking orders for your drinks, in universities studying for their exams, or even in a luxury condo after marrying some rich Singaporean tycoon. Like what Chinese-turned-Singaporean actress Gong Li did. It is very different from the situation here Kuching, where the only place you can find Chinese nationals, is in a foot reflexology!

9/4/2007 under Funny Signs - TAGS: engrish, funny engrish signs Engrish refers to grammatically incorrect variations of English, often found in East Asian countries. From poorly translated signs, menus, and instruction manuals to bizarrely worded advertisements and strange t-shirt slogans, meet twenty funny engrish signs. Deformed person??? worst funny engrish ever "Eliminate horniness" "A time sex thing"??..
Mistakes with English make many badtime for when at on top of oceans. Make yourself aware of these and the misty carpet. We please you to be the kindness if you should say "I am more than these" to the signs. Mind it that maybe your Mandarin not is the sun. Many times!

Funny Engrish Signs I'm not sure which museum has this sign up. I could understand the no smoking part and the keep clear part, but tortoises and uncomfortable passages had me confused. I certainly hope the liquor queen doesn't drive a car! They must export capsules as I know a few people that have taken way too many retard pills. I almost cried laughing at some of the funny things over at Engrish Funny .

Mercredi 11 mai 3 11 / 05 / Mai 00:00 Pas de flancais cette semaine mais de l’ Engrish . Ce terme désigne l’emploi barbare de la langue des Spice Girls au pays du poisson cru. Comme chacun le sait, mon après-midi de samedi dernier fut consacré à la visite du Villaggio Italia .
