    Slowly walking in front of the train is perfectly OK though.

    “Jumping into the tunnel” and “Do it” could be euphemisms for the same thing.

    Yes. Just like Wile E. Coyote.

    Jumping into the tunnel is forbidden.
    Foreplay is not optional.

    Jump into the tunnel, but remember, JUST do it. Nothing more!

    Asian little angel on my left shoulder:
    “You don’t jump into the tunnel! It is forbidden and not allowed!”

    American little devil on my right shoulder:
    “C’mon dude, be a man and break the f***ing rules.”

    You’re right, A Non-Y Mouse, but dohthehumanity is no longer being updated (http://www.xcom2002.com/doh/viewer.php).

    Just… wear a sneaker on your elbow.

    Jumping at large athletic black men is also unwise

    Just because your friend Nike does it, doesn’t make it right!

    I guess it depends on whose tunnel it is.

    Reminds me of that ethnic joke: “How do you do people of different nationalities make jump from a bridge?
    American: “If you jump, you will receive a million dollars, here is the contract”.
    German: “Your boss ordered you to jump from this bridge”.
    Russian: “Did you know that it is forbidden to jump from this bridge?”

    It’s not really bad English so much as a badly-placed advertisement.

    Tunnel? It’s just a patch of wormhole paint, just like in Bugs Bunny!

    I wouldn’t necessarily call it Engrish as much as it is a poor placement of advertising. The signs them selves are okay in terms of grammar and spelling.
