Strangeplaces.net has a listing of funky English translations found around the world. Some of my favorites:

In a Leipzig elevator:
Do not enter the lift backwards, and only when lit up.
In a Paris hotel elevator:
Please leave your values at the front desk.
In a hotel in Athens:
Visitors are expected to complain at the office between the hours of 9 and 11 A.M. daily.
In a Zurich hotel:
Because of the impropriety of entertaining guests of the opposite sex in the bedroom, it is suggested that the lobby be used for this purpose.
In an Acapulco hotel:

Well, made me laugh, anyway.
