(un)intentional (ab)uses of the English language


Those who have traveled abroad probably have been amused by (un)intentional (ab)uses of the English language. Here are some funny (to us) signs in "English".

-- In a Bangkok dry cleaners: "drop your trousers here for best results".
-- In a Tokyo bar: "Special cocktails for the ladies with nuts."
-- Outside a Paris dress shop: "Dresses for street walking".
-- In a Norwegian cocktail lounge: "Ladies are requested not to have children in the bar".
-- In a doctor's office in Rome: "Specialist in women and other diseases".
-- In a Hong Kong dress shop: "Ladies have fits upstairs".
-- In an Acapulco Hotel:"The manager has personally passed all the water served here".
-- In a Paris hotel: "Please leave your values at the front desk".
-- On the menu of a Swiss restaurant: "Our wines leave you nothing to hope for".
-- In a Japanese hotel: "You are invited to take advantage of the chambermaid".
