Welcome to Friday Funnies – where we find humour in mistranslations from around the world. These ones made us laugh out loud. Enjoy!

  • East African newspaper: “A new swimming pool is rapidly taking shape since the contractors have thrown in the bulk of their workers.”
  • Sign in front of a rock garden in the Forbidden City, 2002: “Please do not climb the rocketry.”
  • Note included with the complimentary hotel workout wear, China: “Uncomplimentary pants.”
  • Car rental brochure, Tokyo: “When passenger of foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet him melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your passage, then tootle him with vigour.”
