Breaking the rules

I've seen a few posts with funny pictures from Engrish.com, and I felt the need to contribute. After all, I'm getting this first-hand! So here's an old picture from the Forbidden City in Beijing. The English is perfect, no spelling or grammar errors... but it still cracked me up.

 


Damnit Amanda! Didn't you read the sign??


 


I shall be on the lookout for more hilarity.

LOL...rough translation might be "no drinking in public!" heheheI saw your post on mommy/daughter yoga and that is sweet! I wish my mom had that book. :( I\'m still a total newbie at this stuff, and I\'m awkward and goofy still, but I tell you, I totally underrated it\'s toughness!!!And hell, I would NEVER laugh at aquafit! That is a workout! Anything in water is 10X harder than without that resistance....so you go girl! :) Plus it\'s soo soft on your body in terms of impact on the joints, etc. Good choice - I\'d be more willing to try myself if I didn\'t have the ol\' bathing suit complex. ;-)Take care girl.
