2. Is there an alternative?
This is a signboard that is as funny as signboards can get! Whatever warning the Chinese pictographs might be giving to passersby, its English translation for sure is going to make them stop by and laugh out loud! ‘Slip and fall carefully’ is what the signboard says! And this will perhaps prompt you to ask all but one question ‘Do you have a choice?’! Maybe, the sign actually was intended to read ‘be careful or you will slip and fall’. But note how the misplacement of just one word has altered its meaning totally. English is not called as a funny language for nothing!
