More funny english signs: Japan to Germany

More funny signs of the times as sent to me by email – its Queens Birthday weekend in New Zealand .. . a good time to look at in English that’s NOT written in the ‘Queen’s English’!

Hotel, Japan:
You are invited to take advantage of the chambermaid.

In the lobby of a Moscow hotel across from a Russian orthodox monastery:
You are welcome to visit the cemetery where famous Russian and soviet
composers, artists and writers are buried daily except Thursday.

A sign posted in Germany’s Black Forest:
It is strictly forbidden on our black forest camping site that people of
different sex, for instance, men and women, live together in one tent
unless they are married with each other for this purpose.

Hotel, Zürich:
Because of the impropriety of entertaining guests of the opposite sex in
the bedroom, it is suggested that the lobby be used for this purpose.

Advertisement for donkey rides, Thailand: Would you like to ride on your own ass?  ( PS this one would  only be funny to  speakers of  American English .. other English speakers use this spelling for the donkey type animal  and the rear end of a person is their arse!)
