Anyone horsing around here must have big bronze balls.

The worst part is, this is not a machine translation. The Chinese text contains no “please”.

“Warm tips” is clear, that’s what the Chinese text translates to word by word (or “warm prompt”, as some other Engrish does it).

As for “no horsing”, I guess they had no space for “It is strictly forbidden to (?) the horse”. And what’s in (?) place anyway? Ride? How can you RIDE a bronze horse?! Mount? That brings unwanted associations…

@alexmagnus 0559. Well, at least you would be “sitting on your bronze”.

@alexmagnus: If someone “mounted” the horse, that could be regarded as statuary rape.

‘Tis the bronze horse of a great war hero.

He found it less exciting,
But when his regiment ran away,
He was at the fore o,

@Pete. 0635 The rider has merely hopped off, to crap on the pigeons.

Actually. It is not a horse,but a Unicorn. When the rider tried to climb on, it gave him such a surprise, that he vaulted clean over the saddle, into the creek below.

As a result, he was well, truly, and completely, ducked.
