I was strolling in Chiang Mai’s hot sun for too long today, and after a while the local signposts began to conjure up hilarious scenes in my head. See if you giggle as much as I did at these examples, or if I really just have an overactive imagination and need to take a cold bath.
Apparently, hammer massage (with a small, delicate wood stick) is actually an official type of Thai massage. BUT the sign still evokes images of the following scene:
“Ahh… that feels… wait, what’s that giant metal– AGHHH!! OWWW!!! OWWW!!!”
2. Top Right: “Washy Mashy Laundromat.”
This sign just sounds cute. I can’t tell if they meant to say “Wishy Washy”, or just sort of invented two words, but I like it. Wouldn’t “Washy Mashy” be a cute puppy name?
But… but then no one will know about your company, and you won’t get any business!
4. Second from top on the Right: “PP Hair Cut.”
This is me being three years old, but come on– can’t you picture… ok, I’ll stop. Hehehe.
WHOA there! I immediately see a sleazy man in a cheap suit who greets any woman walking into the door with: “Hey baby, can I help you develop a baby? Oh, and we can find you a job, too, maybe.”
Clearly, this is someone with a reaaally bad cold answering the question: “What is 12,348 divided by 3.52?” Get it???
Hehe… I love me some English Language twiddling! Now, off to take a cold shower.
