Arabic to English Translation Mistakes (Blunders)

Some translations made by the Arab people amuse me the most in Saudi Arabia. It will be unfair to associate it with Arabs only, people from all around the world who don’t have English as their basic language gang rape it while translating. Since, I am living in Saudi Arabia so I am sharing with you some Arabic to English translation mistakes. These are few pictures which have already been available on internet but I have just compiled them for you. I bet you will not be able to stop your smile while looking at these pictures.
