The needlessly alarming commandments, unwittingly suggestive shop signs and appetite-killing menus – anyone for ‘bottom sauce with yogurt’? – produced by poor or mistranslated English are sources of both bafflement and guilty pleasure for modern globetrotters. Indeed, for the past four years the Telegraph’s Sign Language, which presents the funniest and oddest of the thousands of unintentionally amusing signs spotted by the newspaper’s readers whilst on their travels, has become one of its most popular online features, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors every week.
