Wha’s ‘At Say, Taffy Bach?

In my native Wales, it’s long been government policy for all roadsigns to be written in English and Welsh. Usually, that’s not a problem, until the sign maker cuts back on Welsh-speaking employees in an effort to reduce costs.

The above sign is fine in English, but the Welsh translation actually reads:

“I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated”

Ah, the wonders of email!

Thanks to the BBC for the laugh.
