Signboards are everywhere in the Philippines and most of them are written in English.

It isn’t surprising. English is much shorter to write than Tagalog or Bisaya.

Anyway, due to human error or just plain deficiency of vocabulary, there are signs that just make us laugh. It’s just that Filipinos are usually himantayon and they easily notice if someone failed to use the right English words (I’m careful to not make any grammatical errors here!).

Sorry for laughing!
