While traveling around Southeast Asia for the past few months, we've met an exceptionally high number of people who speak English as well or better than we do. That said, English is a complicated language, and the meanings of certain words or phrases often get lost in translation for some non-native speakers. Take the sign above, for example--this beauty was posted on the lawn of the Patuxai, or "victory gate" in Vientiane, the capitol of Laos. We're thinking this was more what they were going for. Although, googling "passing a grass" for alternative meanings gave Liz a good laugh.
