Cross-Cultural Stuff-ups!

ON the Crusiers tour bus today going out to a national park in the jungle.
Tour guide has the microphone at front of bus and his Engrish is not tremendous:

"If you go to toilet behind a tree please say 'Pardon' to the monkeys or you will get swollen genitals."

A few minutes later the clutch burnt out.

Anyone had similar useful advice?

Use the bathroom instead of pissing off the monkeys? ...its probably better for ones sex life.
