Do not major in the changing room

« previous post | next post »

The Chinese notice says:

qǐng wù zài gēngyī shì dà, xiǎobiàn


"Please do not defecate or urinate in the locker / changing room."

Selected readings

  • "Pull!" (11/11/21) — with a lengthy, essential bibliography of posts on urination
  • "Pee straight" (9/5/13)

If you do a search on "defecate", "micturate", "poo", and related verbs and nouns, you will find dozens of other hilarious mistranslations on Language Log.
