If you're running a business in a tourist-heavy country, having signage in English is a smart move. Your smarts go out the window, however, if the English translations you display are horribly, hilariously wrong. We understand that not everyone knows the language well enough to do it all off the top of their head, but please - don't trust Google Translate to give you anything but an absolutely literal conversion of whatever you type in.

Well, to be fair on Google Translate, it's possible that some of these errors were just honest typos. Either way, scroll down to see the funniest mistranslations people have come across during their travels, and vote for the ones that had you howling. Anyone up for a nice 'decomposed Moscow mule' later?
