They should have separate bins for cats and dogs.

In North Korea there are 94 bins identified by colour. If you get it wrong you will be sent to a Collective for Political Re-education.
Strangely; The manage to pick it all up in the one truck.

There’s nothing Engrish about that. Just the bin for PET bottles.

I don’t think this is actually Engrish. In Japan, at least, they refer to plastic water and soft drink bottles as “PET” bottles. Assuming this is also true in Korea, the sign is worded correctly.

Polyethylene terephthalate. PETB are now obsolete. (Thank God)
None of this crap should ever have been invented. They exist by the millions in our world’s oceans. Then when they finally grind down into micro-particles, all the marine animals ingest them.

BTW. We call them “PET Bottles” here in OZ too. I thought that was their normal name.

A pupil told his teacher he’d found a cat, but it was dead.
“How do you know that the cat was dead?” she asked her pupil.
“Because I pissed in its ear and it didn’t move,” answered the child innocently.
“You did WHAT?” the teacher exclaimed in surprise.
“You know,” explained the boy, “I leaned over and went ‘Pssst’ and it didn’t move”

Not only that. But PET Bottles have been found to be giving off oestrogen compounds. So guys – If you find yourself growing boobs, DON’T DRINK THE WATER.

Yeah, this isn’t Engrish. The container is for PET bottles; the sign is correct.

Okay, PET refers to bottles, but where’s the fun in that ! I prefer to envision Koreans taking their animals to the movies.

BTW, a bunch of us went to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show at a small revue theatre in Montreal. On the way there, we came across an injured pigeon. Someone – not me – had the bright idea of smuggling it into the theatre.

At some point, the poor thing expired. A designated bin would have come in handy !

A police officer sees a man walking a lion out in the park. The policeman says “Hey, you can’t take a lion out for a walk here in the park! You should take him the zoo!”
“Okay, I will.” says the man, and he and the lion leave. But the next day the police officer sees the man walking his lion down a city street. The cop yells, “What are you doing? Didn’t I tell you to take that lion to the zoo?”
“Yes” the man said, “And now today I’m taking him to the movies.”

They have a separate receptacle for those wooden cup-boxes the Japanese drink sake out of? Cool!

PET is correct, it says “pet.can”. not funny.

That’s not funny. Pet is the term for a type of recyclable bottle in Japan. That’s not a mistranslation at all, so it really isn’t Engrish.. Also you see that term in many public places near recycle bins and garbage cans in Japan, so I’m surprised they didn’t notice this elsewhere.

Oh this was in Korea, well I’d imagine it’s fairly common there too.

Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly abbreviated PET, no periods, one of the easily recycled plastics ( triangle 1). No engrish here move along.
