‘ARABLISH’ – Amusing English signs found in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia attracts many foreign firms, which means there is a constant population of ex-pat workers. Since few read or speak Arabic, many signs and advertisements are translated into English, which sometimes leads to humorous results.

Photo of a store sign advertising “slit-throat chicken” which means “halal” chicken. However, the English version advertises it as “chicken murder.”

Apparently, this chicken vendor didn’t know that the Arabic word “dik” which means chicken in Arabic, sounds like a slang word for penis in English.

These last two are self-explanatory:
