PIC: The Sign On This Cork Pub’s Cigarette Machine Is Comedy Gold

James Fenton

For smokers, a broken cigarette machine in a pub can be a right pain in the arse. Faced with the prospect with have to traipse to the nearest shop, it can throw the whole night out of whack. 

It’d be even worse if you were in a foreign land and hadn’t a clue what the ‘out of order’ sign’ actually meant. With that in mind, it’s nice to see An Bróg pub on Oliver Plunkett Street in Cork produce this culturally sensitive sign which will ensure nothing is lost in translation. 

Spotted and shared by Reddit user lyrelad93, the sign reads ‘out of order’ in six different languages namely English, French, Spanish, Chinese, German and ehhh…. Cork?

‘Nah lads she’s fucked’. At least anyone left disappointed will be able to crack a smile after seeing this.
