signs of the times...

i think most people know that true meaning can get lost in translation and that was DEFINITELY true in china. we saw some hilarious signs and t-shirts (LOTS of funny t-shirts). some we couldn't get pictures of, but here are some of our favs...

the non-funny first:

because i'm his "library girl"... we LOVED this sign...especially the mccafe ones...that means they had ICE CREAM!...
this was a nice sign too...
and this was fun...it counted down before the olympics started and then up after the opening ceremonies...
and now for the funny (or at least i think so)...

i just thought these illustrations were hilarious. is that what i looked like when i was pregnant??

i'm just confused as to what a cheeseburger has to do with anything...
me too, sista, but let's have a talk about WHAT you're buying...NOT attractive...
says the sign to the parents who just left their child in another country for two weeks...
"we're number one!"...
i think they meant 'irreplaceable'??...
thanks for pointing that out! (the sign says, "nice lawn")
no ALOOHOL, julia...
phew!
this was taken on my camera in a movie theater...oops!...guess i'm not supporting their efforts???
just in case you can't see the sign on the store that is 10 feet away...
good to know that part of the forbidden city was "made possible by the american express company"...i didn't know they were around back then...
hmm...
why yes it is!
i don't even have a sarcastic comment for this one!...
