  13. Ali-Kins | 5:14 am |

    Can’t help thinking this would be more appropriate in British Columbia or WA state with their recent epidemic of human feet washing up on beaches

  14. Xerofset | 5:57 am |

  25. amy | 9:38 am |

    “beware of missing foot….don’t worry you will be protected by the hand”

  26. Dude | 10:14 am |

    Missing Foot? Is he Big Foot’s long lost cousin or something?

  27. beechoak | 10:38 am |

    A missing foot?!?? I suppose it just grew legs and walked away!

  28. David | 10:39 am |

    And also be watch out for missing head, missing arms, and missing hands.

    While you’re at it, maybe you could help me find my other hand…please?

  37. Alix | 7:54 pm |

    If the foot approaches you, you can subdue it by grabbing its Achilles heel!

  38. Tan | 8:27 pm |

    LOL….

    I believe the problem here lies in the literal translation of 小心失足 means watch your step, or literally “be careful of missed step” (be careful of falling).

  39. amanak | 12:32 am |

  66. Anonymous | 1:38 pm |

  67. Emma | 3:50 pm |

    Tan: so in English you could also say “be careful not to lose your footing”, which is what they were going for.

    But it wouldn’t be as funny if they all got it right would it?

  68. Tan | 12:56 pm |

    Yes, correct.

  69. Deebo | 10:04 pm |

  80. Civious | 10:27 am |

  87. Steph | 1:21 pm |

  88. Carlo | 7:32 am |

    Nice way to say: ‘don’t step in this mine field’

  89. Atli Hafsteinsson | 5:49 pm |

    And talk to the hand.

  90. Sandor | 7:48 pm |

    It looks like a hand so it must be a monkey foot. A magic monkey foot. That grants wishes.

  91. Swedish non-blonde | 2:35 pm |

    Hands hands hands everywhere I go…a foot would be a nice diversion.

  92. yoyo | 9:09 am |

    Now we know where they train shoe bombers.

  93. drumming_panda | 5:29 pm |

    I thought Bigfoot didn’t exist.
    Oh, Wait! He’s just missing?

  94. Fede | 12:06 pm |

    Leprosy anyone?

  95. Stoikko | 4:37 pm |

    Thats where bigfoot got his feet!

  96. mdalsted | 1:36 pm |

    Sandor said, “It looks like a hand so it must be a monkey foot. A magic monkey foot. That grants wishes.”

    Sounds like that one story by W. W. Jacobs, “The Monkey’s Paw”.

  97. mdalsted | 2:02 pm |

    Oh, crap! The Monkey’s Paw returns!

  98. Alissa | 1:28 pm |

  105. FatKenney | 4:45 pm |

  106. Lala | 1:08 am |

  107. Shannon Enns | 12:49 pm |

    If you have lost a foot, please go to Vancouver, BC to claim it. Be prepared to identify your lost foot [size, R/L, etc], and explain how it came to be separated from your body!

  108. Steven | 10:23 am |

    Everyone who dares to cross this sacred Indian ground, shall be punished by Chief Missing Foot.

  109. Steven Arwinkle | 10:34 am |

    Wait……shouldnt big FOOT be called big FEET?? cause right now in thinking about a lopsided bear……

  110. steve wong | 8:16 am |

    …but you can chill out when the foot comes back??

  111. Jeff | 8:55 pm |

    This if one of my favorites.
    It’s as if it’s warning us about the dangers of the missing foot, but for some reason, the picture of what we’re supposed to beware of is a hand.

  112. Mandy | 12:50 am |

    They don’t KNOW where they’re coming from. They haven’t found any two that matched.

  113. Dermot | 10:01 am |

    MISSING FOOT-FIVE!!! YEAH

  120. iLock | 10:33 pm |

    A sign warning of a missing foot: that’s handy.

  121. Carolyn Gaylord | 3:17 pm |

    I have some odd socks for the lost foot. You know those that are left after laundry and the mate never shows up.

  122. Omega | 4:12 pm |

    Shredder will be so upset if the turtles find this foot first …

  125. Biff the Understudy | 11:41 am |

    Nasty things, missing foot bites.

  126. Interestingly Caption | 1:44 pm |

    It may be disguised as a hand.

  127. Certainly not an english speaker | 3:07 pm |

    I wonder what kind of place China would be if all those chinglish translations happened to turn out literal. Creepy.

  128. RocketCat | 8:24 am |

    Don’t lose your head

  129. Seventy2rd o clock | 11:22 pm |

    It’s typical for a fast foot to go.

  130. Seventy2rd o clock | 5:04 pm |

    BIG FOOT IS WATCHING YOU

  131. […] Chinese characters on the sign in question, found by someone while hiking in China and posted at engrish.com, don’t say anything directly about feet. Part of the problem is that which is universal to all […]
