Language: Corrected correct??

Spotted these recently.

We got plenty of signs all over the jobsite that tell you about common work-safety practices. Do note that there have been 'paste-over' corrections made to the grammar.

"Isolation inflammables for welding"
"Ban access in danger zone by falling the weighty things"

D'oh ~ the person who corrected the wording on these signs (obviously the smarter person)... messed up!

The corrected phrases are still incorrect! :P

I must fess up....grammar never was my forte....even then this is atrocious stuff. Aaah go on...

Please isolate substance which are inflammable during welding???

Enter at own risk: Danger of heavy stuff falling on head. You have been warned.

That's how I would put it IMHO.

These signs are hillarious. I've never seen signs with pasties and I love bad English! The less sense it makes, the better it is.
