August in China: Panda Signs

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape

There were lots of fantastic bilingual signs in China. Even though a lot of them were grammatically correct, some, like the one below, couldn’t quite translate the poetry in the Chinese language. Here we have a polite sign telling people to get the hell off the grass. I like how the Mandarin version includes a rhyme.


I saw this sign at the entrance of the Giant Panda Breeding Research Centre and wonder why people need to make use of the free sewing kits. Horrors! Do so many suffer maulings from the pandas?


And the last classic in the giant panda exhibit is hardly serious and scientific but it’s so whimsical I love it!
