Unintentionally Hilarious Thai Signs
Thai is not an easy language to read. It looks like this: สวัสดีคะฉันชื่อขอบคุณคะ คุณชื่ออะไร With no space between words, punctuation, or capital letters, it is very difficult to read and write, so one can understand why Thai signs in English don’t always make sense. The wonderful thing is sometimes they are inadvertently comical.
This cracked me up. I looked, and sure enough the old man was there. I was non-verbally urged not to take a picture of his grumpy face by someone near him.
In the bathroom at a cafe, one is reminded that flushing paper down the toilet really stucks!
While at the cafe, a glance at the menu is an easy source of humor.
Yes, two orders of dragon feet please. While you’re at it, throw in a unicorn horn.
Mmmm the greassy salad, please
Excuse me, do you have any human sized prawns? Because that doesn’t look like something out of a horror film.
I don’t know, maybe some cervid would be nice for dinner tonight.
Oooh, I’m stuffed. Moving right along…
…and just out of the comfort zone…
What have we here? A stamp pad or tampon?
or, on second thought, screw the planet!
Found in the baking area of the grocery store…
I’m thinking about making some cookies…
Forget about the cookies, I’ll detox.
…and have an enema. Really though, if you saw this cute little chef drawing and couldn’t read the package, wouldn’t you put this enema set in the baking section?
Why not integrate with banana too?
Leaving the store and going outside….
Dangeraus – warning or reggae band?
Everyday does not mean Wednesday.
Seen on the minivan that took our students on a field trip. Thankfully no one asked what OK meant.
I live on a soi off this street, which I’ve seen spelled at least 5 different ways, but this one is the worst. Seepingmuang – street or rare skin disease?
After all this, I needed a drink. Unfortunately,
Penalty 6 Mouths
If after the alcohol you have a headache, Duran Duran to the rescue!
My very favorite of the bunch…
Really, take some time and re-read it. It’s a gem!
Why I’m here
I’m still happy in Thailand just about everywhere.
More to come!
