Visual Trivia | Engrish

Original text and pictures from Darren Barefoot (one of the top Canadian bloggers).

Audible Penis
Caution: Sitting down may cause your erection to become noisy.

Engrish

Deformed Hand
Warning: Readers will be smacked with a novelty hand.

Engrish

Fingerless
Danger: Fingers may fall off if unmonitored.

Engrish

Inconvenience
Apparently masturbating workers can be a real distraction on the streets of Taipei. Men at work, indeed. The Chinese appears to say a lot more than just "Pardon for Inconvenience".

Engrish

Iraq Chart
A chart used to obtain intelligence from Iraqi prisoners.

Engrish

Japanese Subway
"Priority sheeting should be given to John Holmes, midget lovers, medicine ball users and women giving birth to noisy children." Fakir, who sent the photo, explains that they actually indicate (from left to right): person with injured arm, person holding a child, pregnant woman, person with injured leg. C'mon...how is that last one an injured leg? Disappointingly, James "Kibo" Parry writes to point out that this image is indeed a hoax.

Engrish

Man Down
"For God's sake, watch out for attack boxes"

Engrish

MERB
"Beware of over-sized books, bubble tea and tampons." Not exactly technical documentation, but apparently the logo of the EPA's Microbial Exposure Research Branch and too bizarre not to include.

Engrish

Strange Tea
"Our tea makes you want to smell other people's bums!" From an illustration on a box of Yogi Tea?s Ginger Tea. It?s even funnier if you note that the text immediately under the drawing reads ?inhale deeply through the nose?.

Engrish

Water Heater
"Using this water heater will send you straight to hell. Possibly via your colon."

Engrish

Wheelchair-Unfriendly
This just seems cruel.
