Welcome to this week’s Friday Funnies. These ones made us laugh out loud and reminded us why professional translators are so important. Without them, you get:
- Mountain Inn, Switzerland: “Special today – No ice-cream.”
- Hotel lobby, Moscow, across from a Russian Orthodox monastery: “You are welcome to visit the cemetery where famous Russian and Soviet composers, artists, and writers are buried daily except Thursday.”
- Hotel, Yugoslavia: “The flattening of underwear with pleasure is the job of the chambermaid.”
- Tourist agency, Czechoslovakia: “Take one of our horse-driven city tours. We guarantee no miscarriages.”
If you are ever lost in translation and need some help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
