Say whaaaat?

(This is a post I wrote a while ago, but was unable to post due to our slow internet connection.)

During one of our orientation meetings a while back, we had a speaker who showed us a lot of amusing slides of interestingly worded signs that he has found around China. With any language, things don’t translate exactly when you go from one language to another… so you’ve got to be careful. I thought that this was a marvelous idea, so during my five months traveling around China, I put together a mini collection of sayings that you can check out below. Keep in mind that not all the signs in China are misspelled, but there are a few if you keep your eye out for ’em. They were amusing.

So this one isn’t really mispelled… but I just thought this was hilarious.
