There was this viral email that was forwarded around between the years of 1999 and 2003 containing funny signs reportedly from Malaysia. I received the forward many times, and thought it was about time I would post them here in the Brog for safe keeping. Some have been individually posted (recycled) and Dugg as well later on (after everyone forgot about the email):
You probably recall this Engrish entry from this past Sunday:
Well, looks like someone tipped them off and they have changed the sign already – only thing is it is still spelled wrong (saxophone has 2 “o’s”):
Thanks for the update – Craig Winter!
I checked it out – this thing is actually legit!
From the package of Metal Gear Solid 2 (back in 2002):
I was going to put this on the main page, but the file size is kinda big – I didn’t want to shrink it too much to make it unreadable.

I took this photo of a Japanese tourist at a Waikiki hotel (questionable angle, but I couldn’t help myself). Not really sure how Engrishy the English is, but I still thought that it was funny saying to have on a shirt – and the location is a bit bizarre…
Can’t tell if the caretaker woman in the illustration is wincing or happy (either way it is disturbing). Just spray it from a distance honey, and let the buttocks washing seat do its job.
Not sure I want to grow old anymore…

Here is a typical Japanese department store signage showing various boutique shops for women. Some interesting names – one stands out in particular:

A submitter to the site recently wrote in the following note with this picture:
Yesterday was a really tough day for me in Baghdad, Iraq. My room was just too cluttered, and I was just down in the dumps. I needed to find a place for some of my extra gear and was feeling a bit sad and lonely. Good thing they have dual purpose rooms here in Iraq. Two problems solved. What a country!

My good friend Andree took this picture at a local golf course here on Oahu. I think it is intentional (?), but still funny nontheless…
Thanks for the pic Andree!
