Funny signage photos are… well, fun. Whether it’s published by clickbait sites or travel photographers who couldn’t help but guffaw at the grammar, mistranslation, or local humor, reading these signs is a good way to procrastinate.
I’ve been photographing signs from my travels since the mid-2000s, in hopes that I’d one day publish a book or blog post showcasing my “say what?!” collection. I almost forgot that I already have more than a dozen photographs waiting to elicit laughter from my audience.
Without further adieu, here is my first collection. Disclaimer: When translated to English, some phrases lose their essence and wit, so they may sound better in Filipino or its native Asian language.
