You’re under arrest. And you should get that looked at.

We just want to ask a few questions. This won’t hurt a bit.

“Modern chinese medicine has found that most patients can be cured simply by finding the weak spot in their case history though relentless interrogation. We call that the Policebo Effect.”

Ordinary people were forced into hospital because they tried to escape from police who attempted to arm them with big guns.

You can get arrested, tested, de-infested and possibly molested

People with no arms should go to the hospital on the other side of town.

@DnT: Two observations:
1. The Chinese is written from right to left.
2. The translation is indeed correct when read backwards.
Conclusion: the translator was either an idiot, or someone with a strange sense of humor.

Do I get points for alliteration, using the last two letters, instead of the customary first one?

3. You are reading it from the wrong dimension.

Chinese is a beautiful written language, looks like art… yet the people who “translate” it into English seem to just throw some English words up on some signs. I don’t get it. Why put art on a sign but make no effort to make the English fit?
