This is where you can share and talk about odd or funny English statements because of the way the statement is constructed. Try to include the places where the statements have been posted too. Here are some examples to get us started.

In a Bangkok temple:
"It is forbidden to enter a woman, even a foreigner, if dressed as a man."

Cocktail lounge, Norway:
"Ladies are requested not to have children in the bar."

Doctors office, Rome:
"Specialist in women and other diseases."

Dry cleaners, Bangkok:
"Drop your trousers here for the best results."

In a Nairobi restaurant:
"Customers who find our waitresses rude ought to see the manager."

On the main road to Mombassa, leaving Nairobi:
"Take notice: when this sign is under water, this road is impassable."

On a poster at Kencom:
"Are you an adult that cannot read? If so we can help."

In a City restaurant:
"Open seven days a week and weekends."

In a cemetery:
"Persons are prohibited from picking flowers from any but their own graves."

Tokyo hotel's rules and regulations:
"Guests are requested not to smoke or do other disgusting behaviors in bed."

On the menu of a Swiss restaurant:
"Our wines leave you nothing to hope for."

In a Tokyo bar:
"Special cocktails for the ladies with nuts."

Hotel, Yugoslavia:
"The flattening of underwear with pleasure is the job of the chambermaid."

Hotel, Japan:
"You are invited to take advantage of the chambermaid."

In the lobby of a Moscow hotel 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."

A sign posted in Germany's Black Forest:
"It is strictly forbidden in our Black Forest camping site that people of different sex, for instance, men and women, live together in one tent unless they are married with each other for this purpose."

Hotel, Zurich:
"Because of the impropriety of entertaining guests of the opposite sex in the bedroom, it is suggested that the lobby be used for this purpose."

Advertisement for donkey rides, Thailand:
"Would you like to ride your own ass?"
