This bad English sign hangs above a fast food place in Changdong, Seoul in South Korea. The restaurant actually serves hot dogs and burgers and could really benefit from hiring a proofreader with even a slight understanding of the English language; otherwise they will continue to find themselves turning away customers looking for a nice, juicy grilled poodle steak with a side of pan-fried crickets.

Haha, that’s hilarious. And the thing is, while it’s so off, the words are still food related and so believable – as opposed to being so wrong that we’d know there was a mistake.

You’re right. You can get both dog soup and boiled or steamed silkworm larvae in Korea. Maybe they just wanted to save money by buying a used sign from some other place and figured it was close enough.

Can’t go wrong with a little dog and bug in your diet lol. I remember seeing signs like this all the time in Japan and just shaking my head. The worst was my company’s motto, which the English version of made no sense – and it was a translation company!

I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised that even a translation company might have some difficulty with the English language, given the abundance of bad English in Japan.

Is it true that they serve dogs in Korea? I have heard of this before but not too sure about it. I think I will stick to chicken for the time being.

They do, but it’s not nearly as common anymore as it used to be. In fact, I think they’ve outlawed the sale of dog meat in Seoul, but I went to a market in Moran just south of the city and they were still selling live dogs and butchering them right there in the market.
