Rantings and Ravings and the Occasional Sane Comment of a priest blogging from the Global Center. I have a camera and I'm not afraid to use it! Now with Lovely Mona!!
Apparently the entertainment value of bad translations goes in both directions. Language Log has a recent piece on the 'Chinese' language sign for a ride at Coney Island, which helpfully advises Chinese visitors that 'pregnant women should not ride horseback' on the roller coaster.http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=2382
Thanks for the link, Rick. It's good to know that English speakers can translate just as poorly.
