There once was a Laundromat in China,
That had machines which were quicker and finer,

Do not wash clothes here please thing. 请勿在此洗衣物 Hey, guys, to help you better understand this ridiculous Engrish sign, we have to first get the meaning of the original Chinese message. There are altogether 7 characters here meaning: Please (1) – not (2) – over(3) – here (4) – wash (5) –clothes (6+7). Apparently the translator knew enough English to put “please” at the end of the sentence, but the 2nd Chinese character must have given the poor guy a lot of trouble, as it shared the same pronunciation as “thing” or “matter”(物) (though different characters).Thus, the tragic result.
