Typo fun around the world

Typo, typo on the wall, which is the funniest of you all?!

Please don’t get me wrong: I do not want to ridicule anyone around the world for the typos and misspellings they use. English is clearly not their first language and I seriously appreciate them for at least trying. But these typo signs you find while travelling are just hilarious sometimes!

Even I often make mistakes in English, so feel free to find my own typos and laugh about them, too!

But here come some of the ones that made me smile the most during my travels.

Ready to have some typo fun? There you go:

Typo fun: No have include

Now this one is a common typo in South East Asia, good for a start. ‘No have’ simply means ‘There isn’t’. The ‘No have’s and ‘Can not’s will probably resonate forever in everyone who’s been there for a little bit. I can still laugh about it every single time I see or hear it! But let’s get a little weirder:

Typo: Sign in Myanmar

What danger? And the machine is being what?! I guess we’ll probably never find out. It’s good when a sign includes a phone number, so you can possibly ask how it’s meant:

Typo: Sign in Thailand

This typo cracks me up! ‘Sell to land’ instead of ‘Land for sale’. Brilliant! No real need to call the number, hahah! But it was going to get worse:

Typo: Sign in Malaysia

Ever since I took this picture, I am wondering what a butt centre might be. Thinking about it, it could really be a lot of things

Why not come back to something more normal like happy air? Yes, you heard me right:

Typo: Sign in Thailand

Well, the most important thing is indeed happiness. So why not buy happy air?! And after that, maybe something to eat?

Typo: Sign in Costa Rica

Yummy, fried pans! Frying pans, fried pans – it really isn’t easy sometimes…

Ready for some philosophical typo fun?

Typo: Sign on bottle in Myanmar

Personally, I think I get it. At least line 2. Maybe.

It gets better though; and almost more philosophical, that is:

Typo: Sign with woman in Ukraine

Now, don’t you love summer body, too?!

OK, back to food typos:

Typo: Sign in Myanmar

They pickled a whole village? I never got to see that… I wonder what it would taste like, all these houses and streets and stuff…

What about a whole buffet of  happiness instead?

Typo: Sign in Thailand

Funny, right? Does that, for some reason, make you think of mud? No? Well, this one might:

It really does not get much better than soaking collective mud. It is probably the most ‘integrating’ activity of all.

What about some water with it? Warm, you say? Sure! I’ll make it real warm for you:

Typo on a menu

Seriously, how are these Asian chefs doing all that stuff? All these delicious dishes are one thing, but chapeau for frying water. Like, seriously.

Well, one thing is for sure: Food is always a more pleasant experience in Asia than changing money. Here comes one of many reasons why that is:

Get it? I don’t. Never mind. Just hand them the bills.

Well, but if there is one thing you should never forget, then it is this:

Typo on a sign in Myanmar

Ah, and, of course this:
