Don’t Fall Down

Over the years I have received a large number of photos of the classic Chinglish sign “Don’t Fall Down” – found in the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. The sign is funny on its own, but everyone has their own unique take on it:

The traditional “I was here” photo:

To give you an idea of where this sign is:

Uh oh, people are starting to fall down…


And my favorite (featuring the dead cockroach look):

Not when you are dead drunk…

This was posted outside of the entrance to the women’s section at a hot springs bathing facility in Tokyo:

Not quite Engrish per se, but I don’t think you are going to bother reading the sign if you are dead drunk!

Disnney Bilingual Kindergarten

Submitter Suzie Tombs sent this in with the following note a few years back:

I am currently working at ‘Disnney Kindergarten’ in Taiwan. Here’s the outside of the school…   And it takes how long to proof read?

Japan’s New First Lady Has Been to Outer Space

By now you may have heard – the new first lady of Japan, Miyuki Hatoyama, has been to Venus and back on a flying saucer, and used to be friends in a former life with Tom Cruise.

Mrs. Hatoyama wrote a book last year entitled “Very Strange Things I’ve Encountered” wherein she claims that “While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus,…. It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green.”

On a recent television appearance, she talked about her life with Tom Cruise – in a former life of course:

“”I have a dream that I still believe will come true, which is to make a film in Hollywood… The lead actor is Tom Cruise, of course. Why? Because I know he was Japanese in a previous life. I was with him then. So he would recognize me when I see him and say ‘long time, no see!’”.

She subsequently said on the show:  ”I also eat the sun,” looking up with her eyes closed, raising her arms high as if she was tearing pieces off an imaginary sun. “Like this, hum, hum, hum. It gives me enormous energy.”

Her husband Mr. Hatoyama was just elected as Prime Minister and has the arduous task of trying to turn around Japan’s struggling economy. Maybe his goofy wife will take all of the attention away from him so he can do his job?

Elfen Lied Anime Engrish

Here is a screen capture taken from the Japanese anime series Elfen Lied. I am not familiar with the series so I am not sure what context this is in, but seems a bit odd nonetheless…

Harry – You’re So Rock!

Harry Potter is so cool he generated some rockin’ Engrish:

This photo was found on a major Finnish newspaper site called Ilta-Sanomat (Evening News) from an article entitled “The Boy Who Conquered the World” a couple of years back. The photo was taken in Japan.

Thanks to Aino Pokela for the heads up (even though I am two years late…).
