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.
