“Honestly, Honey! I’m sure if it was really dangerous it would be clearly marked! Honey…? Honey..!? Hey, where’d you go…?”

It looks to me like it’s only dangerous if your name is Stan.

I’m glad you pointed that out, because otherwise I may have done whatever it is I’m not meant to do. Or maybe not done it. Or maybe followed your instructions. Or something. Thanks again, though.

Funny I thought the sign was telling us about the dead trees.

And we’d rather not see Kyle, Cartman or Kenny around here, either.

When did the Chinese start using Flench instead of Engrish?

I’m a little disappointed they got “this” and “strictly” correct. Other than that, though, outstanding work.

Advice to tourists:
For your safety, please learn Engrish before you tour Trohibistan.

Stan was under the influence of alcohol when he put up this sign…

Apparently the Super Famicom was called SNES in Trohibitstan as well.

It’s funny, but the sign was probably assembled by someone with no knowledge of English, following directions from the boss.
Before long, we’ll have hilarious Western attempts at writing Chinese signs. 風水輪流轉.
