Every country has them, interesting ways to get points across. Mexico does not escape the laughter. Here are funny signs in Mexico that are translated in funny spanglish ways.
Anyone that uses Google Translate to turn Spanish into English knows that it is not perfect and can be downright frustrating at times. Bing translation services are even worse. Just imagine the funny things we say when we are learning Spanish!
Sometimes the best way to get a point across is in picture form but sometimes that gets lost in translation.
We are bringing you a gallery of funny signs and Spanglish. We will be updating this as we find things to share so check back often, like all our galleries. If you think this is funny, also check out our funny things we see while going around Playa gallery here.
Funny Spanglish Signs in Mexico
There is an epidemic of “hod dogs: in Mexico. This was not just a typo on one sign because we have captured it several times.
This funny sign in Mexico calls the food like it is, fat. Not though the best name for a restaurant especially if you want English speaking customers.
This next funny sign in Mexico is 0 for 2. It is kind of phonetic through.
We saw this sign at a lagoon that had swimming. Being drunk is so inconvenient at times.
Actually this one is more funny when you know more about it. The word “super” in Mexico is short for supermarket and “Man” is a Mayan last name. So they may have no idea the double meaning of this sign.
Oxxo is a well know convenience store in Mexico. This hand made sign on a local families house is too funny. They actually do sell drinks and snacks here. Their sign reads “Cleoxxo”.
The sign below is way off in meaning. They meant to say ” Do not place objects on the plastic countertop because it will melt. ”
