Signs of The Times: "Do not trust wily strangers."

In our Bangkok hotel room, the little sign sitting on top of the safe said, "In case of an unfortunate incident, the management will not be responsible."
Without even going to the extreme of Engrish, one can find many signs in English that get their message across, not as idiomatic but more cute than the writer intended. As for the Chinese restaurateur in Napoli describing the varieties of duke he offers, that just quacks us up.
