Procreation, anyone?

Fellow friends of Chinglish,

I am urgently looking for any "f..." signs ...

Please send me your original contributions (not stuff downloaded from the Net) as soon as possible to chinglish at

Many thanks,

Beautiful, indeed. This is a good example of why Chinglish (that doesn't lead to dangerous consequences) needs to stay. In the West, we are so used to a certain approach with public warning signs or Do's and Don'ts that we don't notice them anymore (and, in the end, often end up doing things that these signs tell us not to do).

But can you resist the charme of this approach, taken at the Great Wall?
It's part of a series visible at countless other spots along it.

Many thanks, Angi!
