Project 365+1 :: Day 42 :: “Lost in Translation”


One of the great things about living in Okinawa is the daily comic relief.  Honestly, I’m sure these signs are placed strategically to cause us to pause and think.  Then in thinking, we laugh.  I giggle ALL THE time when I’m out and about.  It just seems like every sign that was in Japanese is plugged into a translation generator, like one you find through Google, then hit enter.  This sign is not as hilarious as others I’ve seen, but it does use jargon that Americans don’t necessarily use in regards to pet waste.  Also, the faded picture of a dog’s back end is the cherry on top of this Translation Sundae.
