When translated into English it has endless opportunity to produce
amusing phrases and thus create funny Chinese signs.

Engrish - Keep table cleaned after dying

Chinglish has distinct forms, here we have a Malapropism, ‘drying –> ‘dying’.
On close inspection I saw a second funny phrase in the above notice.
Not only is there ‘Keep table cleaned after dying’, but also there is: ‘Thanks
for your corporation’.

On their menu was: ‘Hot Bowel of Soup’.

Cultural Signs

It seems to me that all cultures have variations of this Chinese Great wall sign.

To digress slightly, do you find that when you are in a pub listening to jokes, how one joke reminds you of another?
Well here is an example.

In English the loos are labelled ‘Ladies’ and ‘Gents’, but in my homeland, Wales, the word for ‘Ladies’ is Merched.  Well a group of visiting
Chinese tourists were heard to
All day we see everywhere sign posts to this place Merched, but we no find it.  Is it nice place? Could you direct us please?’
