Silly Signs Around Asia

We loved giggling at the ridiculously silly signs we saw in Europe and in Ghana. Thankfully, the comical signage continued on into Asia!


On the New Delhi metro, this muskrat looking character reminded us not to hold the doors or we'd apparently get electrocuted.


In Japan, an irate car (to no fault of the driver) will run over any child attempting to reclaim a runaway ball.


 “Passengers with pacemakers or other medical devices”. Really? Can't this sign just say “Use your best judgement” instead of listing every possible passenger to whom you should offer your seat on the bus? We get it!

IMG_2822This one is just vulgar. Second from the right. What's that this injured man is holding with his left hand?!

We guess that requires a seat!

    We loved some of the signs around China lost in translation.

    Whilst trekking in the Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan Province we stumbled on these ones…..!

    You think those signs are funny? Try reading instructions manuals of gadgets and toys made from China, Japan or Korea translated to English. Guaranteed to crack you up!!!
