What makes it funny is that it was put out by the Department of Education. I pointed out the error at a school meeting where a similar sign was posted but was told that it was a federal program and they could not change the wording.

Here's a sign that I saw over the urinals at a men's room in the far east. I do not have a photo, but it looked something like this.

PLEASE FLASH
AFTER USING

Now that’s funny.

More pictures (I’m posting some of them from two different sources in case one of them disappears):



















My driver is an ass rammer? That's good to know.

In my youth I spent some time in the Orient and noted a lot of comical misuses of English. I collected all the ones I could remember, added a couple of my own invention, and included them in a passage in my novel The European Identity:
Quote:
The western portion of the United States was becoming more and more Chinese as China sought to dominate and eventually annex that territory by sending in more and more Chinese colonists in the guise of “immigrants.” It wasn't long before the city of San Francisco was nearly one hundred percent Chinese. The few remaining non-Chinese told stories of the strange English that was spoken there by the Chinese.

In one instance, a White man told of how he went to see a doctor, and the receptionist told him, “Please, shit over there.” She must have meant “sit over there.” When he saw the doctor, the doctor said, “I need to taste your urine.” He figured the doctor meant “test your urine.” When he went to the men's room to produce the sample, the sign over the urinal said, “Please flash after using.” It must have meant “flush after using.” When a nurse came to take his blood pressure, she said “Kiss me” as she rolled up his sleeve. He was pretty sure she meant “excuse me.” Complaining about how stressful her job was, she told him, “My work has too much pleasure.” She probably meant “too much pressure.”

Many Chinese-owned businesses were given names in English of the sort that that Asians would come up with who don't understand all the nuances of English. For example, a Chinese man obtained a permit from the city to open a chain of Chinese fast-food eateries in all of the subway stations in the city. As the subway system was called Bay Area Rapid Transit, or BART, he named his restaurant chain Bay Area Rapid Food and used the acronym BARF. Another Chinese man opened a pet store, and, noting that “fondle” is a synonym for “pet,” named his store Fondle Dogs and Cats. A Chinese-owned butcher shop had a sign outside that read, “Our meat is always flesh.”

Chinatown was still promoted as a tourist attraction, and as the city became one hundred percent Chinese, and English was no longer spoken or understood in most parts of the city, White tourists noted the anomaly that Chinatown was the only place in the city with signs in English and the only place where English was still spoken.

That picture reminds me of the following restaurant, for some reason...



P.S. Nikola, thank you for posting that excerpt about Chinese people from your novel.

Default Man Attaches Jet Engine to Amish Buggy, Reaches 60 mph

Jet-Powered “Thunder Buggy” Reaches 60 MPH
Quote:
It’s Friday, so how about something light. So, here are a couple of guys who took an Amish buggy and strapped a jet engine onto the back of it. Why not.


The two men behind the rocket buggy live somewhere in Amish country and are apparently racing enthusiasts.


One of the two bought a jet engine online by mistake (he thought it was “turbo shaft”, but it was “turbo jet” only, whatever that means).


In practice this means it wouldn’t work on a heavier vehicle (he had originally planned to attach it to a truck).

Living in “the Amish capital of the world” (going by the buggy I’m guessing he means Holmes County), he decided “an Amish buggy would be perfect” for the engine.
