Prats of The Week - Swansea Council

Well done Swansea council for wasting money on a spectacularly poorly translated road sign.

In English the sign reads
"No entry for heavy good vehicles. Residential site only"
When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they received an email response in Welsh saying (as per the BBC):
"I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated". 
This of course was duly emblazoned upon the bilingual sign!

Swansea council, well deserving Prats of The Week.

  1. That is so funny!

    Perhaps Ken, the "Prats of the week" award could be renamed "Council of the week" award because it seems to me, that more often than not, councils win the award.

    Errr Ken......
    You should probably award yourself a Prat of the Week award for running this story. If you look at the top of the BBC website page you have linked to, you will notice that this story was news in 2008 !! Indeed, I seem to remember that it ran on HIGNFY at the time and has been repeated on "Dave" a few times since.
    Sorry Ken !! Love your site though :o)

    1. Oh my goodness!!

      I picked up the story from the BBC site yesterday from the part that shows most read....mea culpa!

      Well spotted:)
