I am here now getting all the last minute details organized for the upcoming international conference and workshop on Technology for Innovation and Education in Developing Countries (TEDC 2008). Just for fun, here are some of the interesting images that jumped out at me today while walking the streets of Kampala, Uganda…
What if you are not the “management”? Then is it OK to put up posters?
Aren’t you glad that some advertisements don’t come with pictures?
You probably couldn’t even comprehend this hall if you saw it!
I walked in here and asked them if they could make me beautiful. They said they had a lot of faith there, but not that much.
Don’t get your hopes up. No “slushees” inside.
Get a lover! Don’t die! HAHAHAHA. These were great! Thanks for posting them!
I wish I could post some good Chinese signs I’ve come across in response- some of my faves are “Do not trample the toilet” in a prominent mall restroom, and a billboard posted at the entrance to the city of Langfang that says “Drive politely for the Olympics, Obey the rules for fluent traffic,” and on the garbage cans in a historical site it said “Protect relic begin with me.” So fun!
I’m thinking of calling the number on the “Gaining Bums Quickly” just to see what on earth they are offering exactly?! – I wonder if they give a free consultation before charging for treatment? 🙂
Maybe I could suggest a tag line:
There are no “side” effects, butt the “bottom” line is obvious.
Oh man, OK – enough cracking myself up. This is the kind of humor that my nephews would love, but is probably not suitable for general public consumption.
Clint- you and I have a similar sense of humor. These cracked me up! I don’t know if I can even pick a favorite- all good, all favorites! My only question is why we don’t have “Get a Lover” posters here in Provo… imagine. 🙂
That is hilarious check out these other funny signs they are chinesese mistranslations.
