Funny Thai Sign

Funny Thai Signs Written in English


Funny Thai signs brighten any dull day. I respect any native who tries their hand at writing English signs, but to our amusement, they’ll likely just end up making a funny Thai sign.

The only thing better than when Thais speak English is when Thais write English. Not only do the Thai and English languages contrast structurally, but they’re stylistically different as well. Thais use totally different adjectives than we do to describe everything. When applied to writing, these huge language differences makes for hilarious English reading material.

    It usually means that they love boobs.

    • Yes, I know. It’s a reputable company and its name is in no way shape or form in miswritten English. I just really, really like the name. And the odd, indifferent face logo they picked.

Let me know what you think
