More screwed up English signs...

I think one of the best places to see terrible English is at the rest stops along highways. There you can find all sorts of public announcements about rules and regulations.

Unfortunately, there is no regard for correct translations. Here are just a couple of hilarious results.

The first photo is talking about the regulations for driving through tunnels. If you break the rules, you will be fined 'ceaselessly' until the end of time.

The second is at a food stand. Both the sausage and the tofu names are pretty screwed up. However, the tofu should read charcoal barbecued stinky tofu. Instead a direct translation has changed charcoal into carbon.
