“Beijing has corrected over 6,500 traffic signs and will next target public toilets, museums and menus as it erases bad English translations before the 2008 Olympics, a city official said Wednesday.
The host city is taking aim at sloppy and often hilarious translations that dot the city to avoid Olympic-sized embarrassment over menu items such as ‘fried crap’ and attractions like the “Racist Park” — a venue dedicated to ethnic minorities.”
Don’t get me wrong… I’m pleased to see that the eradication of “Racist Park” is near. But why does it take the promise of the world’s largest international sporting event for you to get your shit together? You’ve known that “fried crap” had to go for at least six months.
