Another translation masterpiece: A poster for a new anti-pickpocket campaign in Prague. Three English sentences, an error in each in one of them.

By the way, your image didn't show up. When I tried to open it in IE, there was a %20 before the .jpg.

...It showed up now.

How disappointing Dec 1, 2005

It is truly frustrating to be faced with a bigger-than-life example of such rubbish, especially when the same poster awaits you in every tube station etc...

How can this sort of production come to be? It's beyond me.

I tried to link the image directly from the news article, but it didn't work. It's fixed now.

The marks are not mine, by the way.
