lost in translation



Cecilia's trip to Thailand revealed some odd translations complete with quotation marks. Just keep your "fins" away from our "coral", ok?

TRIPLE quotes around the first fin -- I guess they mean business!

Fins really do cause a lot of damage to live reefs, one kick can wipe out hundreds of years of growth. I suppose "Inconsiderate divers will be caned!" makes for a poor slogan eh?

Those sentences are just screaming for adorable kitty pictures!

I like "Fin Do Not Used Here" the best.

I like to think the carved figure is doing the talking.

I love the comment by Bethany: just keep your "fins" away from our "coral", ok? the best... that made me laugh right out loud!! Hahahaha, see I'm still laughing!
But I do like the tiki head, too. =)

I think that eaxamples from places that doesn't have english as their main language are a lot less fun than the "american" examples.
