But please don’t leave any silly messages like this one, at lightning of a lamp or a buzzer; it may be disturbing. Please corporate.

An extraordinary telephone doesn’t need to be told which number to call. It just knows.

I’m just an ordinary guy and I certainly won’t do anything like that.

This phone is extraordinary because it’s impossible to dial a wrong number, it never rings when you’re in the shower, and you’ll never get calls from telemarketers. The secret of this extraordinary phone?
It doesn’t work!

Tank, we’re going to need a signal soon. Not just any signal, I want it to be from a nearby extraordinary telephone.

Wha’t’s an extraordinary phone? A phone that can translate this sign into understandable Engrish? I wonder if that’s even possible…

By ‘extraordinary telephone’ – did they mean public phone with telephone book still attached, or perhaps an ordinary cellphone with extended battery life?

Red Lamp? Buzzer? There’s an app for that.

To find the direction your soul mate is in and rescue her go to the red light or buzzer and tell me the extra terrestrial phoning nearest here.

See! Easy to translate.

Hand me the dumb phone please, never mind ..I’ll just write a letter.

That’s word-by-word translation for you.

The sign actually says: “Anyone who notices the red light is on, or hears the buzzer, is kindly requested to cooperate with the rescue personnel. Please contact us through the nearby emergency phone”.

The translation is really a work of art.

So, my suggested caption is “In case of extraordinary”

My regular mind does not cooperate but my companion mind however, likes to cooperate with rescuing red lamps.

maybe they better use Google Translator, it translate better, even if a bit Engrish … but I guess we can at least guess what the whole sentence is about …
