When Signs Go Bad - Mistranslated Posters From Around The World (Pictures)

People pedantic about punctuation have long been on the warpath for signs bearing grammatical-errors but these posters take mistakes to a whole new level.

Vigilant Daily Telegraph readers have been snapping mis-translated signs from around the world and sending them into the paper. The eagle-eyed enthusiasts have been so prolific that now a book has been released documenting the foul faux-pas of the less punctilious sign makers.

These misunderstood, mad and dangerous to read signs include rude shop names, advice against washing yourself and some unintentional toilet humour. Share your own experiences below.

Sign Language: Travels in Unfortunate English from the Readers of The Telegraph is available from all good book shops at £8.99
