  • Jerusalem – there’s no such city! (tourism brochure trying to say ‘Jerusalem – there’s no city like it!’)

  • Frozen ice sold here (shop in Toledo, Spain)

  • If you are interesting call me please (job application letter)

  • This tastiness cannot be carried, even with both hands (chocolate snack in China)

  • Take me home, let’s make happy in your basket! (Bread packaging in China)

  • Not an entrance to no workers (Spanish building site)

  • You are required to declare all sorts of private things (Port of Jeddah)

  • Family Planning Advice: Use rear entrance (Northampton General Hospital)

  • Martini and nipples (Lake Garda, Italy, wine bar)

  • Depressed soup (menu in Russian)
