Lost In Translation.

All of these signs and bloopers are located in countries where English is a second language and in some instances in English speaking countries they are not much better.

Tailor sign reads: Order now your summer suit, because is big rush, we will execute customers in strict rotation.

Car Rental sign reads: When passenger of foot have in sight tootle the horn, trumpet him melodiously at first but if he still obstacles your passage, then tootle him with vigour.

Hotel Elevator sign reads: To move the cabin, push button for wishing floor, if the cabin should enter more persons each one should press a number of wishing floor, driving is then going alphabetically by national order.

Newspaper ad reads: There will be a Moscow Exhibition of art by 16,000 Soviet Republic painters and sculptors these were executed over the past two years.

Sign in milk bar window reads: English well talking. Here speeching American.

Wine list menu reads: Our wines leave you nothing to hope for.

I LOVE the car rental one.
All that tootling and trumpeting!

These are all great, and I think, once or twice, wine may have left me nothing to hope for.

The tootling bit sounds a lot like the Japlish instructions in my Suzuki handbook about 30 years ago.

But I LURVE the works by artists executed over the past two years. Don't we have a work of art somewhere in Melbourne called the Red Peril?
