Japanese Translation Gone Wrong!

Japanese Translation SignOur family enjoys giving unusual presents – particularly if they come with translated Japanese (or Chinese) instructions. One year we received a toy that had instructions poorly translated from Japanese to English.  Our favorite line was, “Battery Into It.”  From then on, any wonderful gem of a translation we find is now called a “Battery Into It.” Yesterday I went to the restroom in a Chinese Food Restaurant.  I was tickled to find a real “battery into it” right in front of me, pointing down towards the trashcan.  So I flipped out my camera phone and *click!*  Battery Into It!
