    This is one of my favourites, I must admit. Another one is:

    “Tender, fragrant grass. How hard-hearted to trample”.

    “Keep off the grass” seems quite superficial in comparison really. Just an order, as opposed to an appeal to your better nature.

    That said, I could be reading far too much into it! :)

    To be honest, I think that this war on Chinglish is a bit silly. Hopefully, a professional translation company is being used for the important things anyway but wherever it’s harmless, Chinglish ought to be left alone.

    Hi Jodie,

    I totally agree… while traveling through China, I have often thought it would be an excellent business to help them translate… My wife is from there, and mentioned that they may not care about spending the money…

    Apparently they had a MASSIVE gov contract before the Olympics to translate all the signs in the general area where the games were taking place… but that is only a roomer I hear… Damn, I may have been a millionaire by now haha

    However, I like getting a good laugh from these… apparently, we make the same mistakes with our translations to Chinese… who would have thunk it? haha

    Glad you liked the joke. Kept your link, hope it helps you get business…

    BS Team…

Got something to say?
