These 32 Bad Translations Are The Worst The World Has Ever Seen…LOLOL!

English is a notoriously difficult language to learn as an adult. There are countless ways to mess it up and the grammar rules are downright insane. That’s why, in many foreign countries, the English translations you find can be hilarious. They’re especially bad (and also awesome, in a way) in countries that use a different alphabet. When people in Asian countries attempt to make bi-lingual signs or products… the resulting “Engrish” is just too good NOT to love.

1.) Is that a haiku?

2.) Kissing sounds? Adorable!

3.) That’s not the only thing.

4.) These can be so tricky.

5.) Aww, that’s so sweet.

6.) What?! My favorite.

7.) At least they know their buffet food is gross.

8.) I absolutely HATE tense chicken feet.

9.) Nacho Hippo? Nothing can go wrong here.

10.) NOOOOO! I thought that was just a conspiracy theory.

11.) BURNNNNN.

12.) They always think they are holier than thou, too.

13.) No. No I won’t.

14.) More lawns need to feel confident about their emotions.

15.) Rushing: what you do when you really have to pee.

16.) Ummm. Thanks?

17.) But where can I get coffee, then?

18.) Ugh, those are the worst.

19.) Because old crap would be gross.

20.) I’ll have the “Ugh, whatever.” please.

21.) That sweet, sweet tiny grass.

22.) Heyyyy, back off, okay? I enjoy my meal how I see fit.

23.) Sorry, man, I can’t control the rain.

24.) Ah yes, that ancient and wise phrase.

25.) And I will not.

26.) Ah yes, his classic catchphrase.

27.) That just sounds like an insult.

28.) Is that an offer or a command?

29.) At least they don’t pretend to know why.

30.) That’s convincing.

31.) Okay, sure?

32.) This is a mint for your mouth, right?

Traveling through different countries around the world can be an awesome experience, even if it’s just to experience the awful English translations. Share these hilarious typos and mistakes by clicking below; you’ll make someone’s day.

The Only Purpose These 30 Signs Serve Is To Make Us Laugh Way Too Hard

Most signage exists for a few pretty good reasons.

Signs are made to keep us safe, discourage stupid behavior, and provide us with useful information — well, usually. But when you see how completely useless these signs are, you’ll seriously wonder what people were thinking when they put them up.

There’s going to be a lot of confusion ahead, folks.

1. Something tells me they’re not going to put up a fight.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

2. Because everyone knows you enter through the exit.

3. You can’t miss it.

4. I would have NEVER figured that out.

5. That worked well.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

6. Who would have known there were other things beyond this point?

7. Because this really needs to be seen.

8. Rain is wet?

9. Guess it’s not a secret anymore…

10. I had no idea…

11. So THAT’S what those are!

12. But it kind of is…

13. Wait, what?

14. There’s no way you’d see it from here…

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

15. What an ingenious solution!

16. Thanks for the heads up.

17. Good thing that sign was there to warn me about…that sign.

18. You don’t say…

19. It’s like talking to a brick wall.

20. I totally would have missed that.

21. Um, okay.

22. Who knew?

23. Well, yes.

24. I definitely needed that clarification.

25. But I was hoping to throw my valuables in!

26. Just to be clear.

27. So which is it?

28. Darn, I really wanted to.

29. Now I’m dying to know if they’ve ever had this problem.

30. I’m so confused.

(via List25)

There is only one thing to say after all of that.

These 11 Unbelievably Obvious Signs Have Completely Believable Advice.

Sometimes, a well-placed sign can be helpful. Paying attention to signs can be incredibly useful, or even life-saving. For example, the New York subway alerts commuters to whether or not they have to enter a sub- or sub-sub-basement to take the L-train. Without signs, they’d be lost in a labyrinth. Forever.

Other times, though, signs leave you scratching your head. Their confusing language or redundancy is just… weird. The signs aren’t wrong, but that doesn’t make them any less ridiculous. Here are some signs that are so rational and literal, they are unbelievable.

1.) Oh, but it looks so comfortable! Thanks for the advice, sign.

2.) … well, I wouldn’t if I could.

3.) I think this was meant for amphibians. Right?

4.) Very thin. So thin it’s nonexistent.

5.) The sign that will replace all traffic lights in America.

6.) This sign is saying what the barbed wire apparently couldn’t.

7.) This sign applies only to swimmers who are not bound by the laws of physics.

8.) Shouldn’t this sign just be everywhere?

9.) I guess after putting that arrow in a crappy place, writing ‘STOP’ was easier than just erasing it.

10.) This sign trusts you’ll be the judge on whether or not your friend’s outdoor black metal listening party is “unnecessary noise”.

11.) Cannonball?!

If you have a friend who is attempting to pick up a giant horse, give this a share on Facebook! He may want to know that the owner of the farm doesn’t allow that kind of nonsense.
