A Scottish Town Just Realized a Sign Says ‘Welcome To Penis Island’
You should never have anyone who doesn’t know the language making signs unless a translator is supervising.
According to Metro, a town in Scotland called Rothesay is on the coast of an island called Bute, and they have a big sign at their port to welcome visitors in both English and Gaelic.
Unfortunately, they just realized that when they translated it, “Bute” became “Bhold” which means “penis,” so anyone who speaks Gaelic will read the sign as “Welcome to Penis Island.”
They’re working on getting a new sign now.
