Adventures in Bad Translation

Adventures in Bad Translation is a weekly article where we gather 'round and laugh at slaughtered attempts of the English language.

When your own computer is telling you not to use a floppy disk, it's time to get a new one.

Isn't that pretty much what they are though?

I came across this one on a local Chinese menu. I asked if they served brown rice and they promptly told me to look at the front page of the menu.

Children, drink for them.

If you have any examples of bad translations feel free to send them to us.
