Some silly, some gross, some downright racist. Many just funny to the native English speaker with a very immature mind.

1. This one’s just rude.

Wicklow, Ireland

2. Heh-heh-heh…’gina.

San Francisco, CA

Melbourne, Australia

8. If you get crabs from Dirty Dick’s Crab House, that’s really your bad.

Florida Chain

9. File under: Things I would never order at a restaurant.


This place is actually pretty cool — it is run by an organization that tries to respond to current social and economic dilemmas. The restaurant itself is environmentally sustainable and promises that its “food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy.” Phew.

10. This one is pretty darn clever, I’ll give ‘em that.

New Canaan, CT

11. Nothing about this is what I want in my mouth.

26. Oof.

The owner actually just changed the name of this Philly restaurant on Aug. 5, 2013, to “Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop” stating, “It’s 2013…It was time to do it.” Probably a good call, yes.
