A Gaelic grammar blunder means this sign reads 'Welcome to Penis Island'

ALL ABOARD THE FERRY TO PENIS ISLAND!

GRAMMAR MATTERS. Need even more proof? Try this sign welcoming people to the Isle of Bute in Scotland.

In Irish and in Scottish Gaelic, ‘bod’ means ‘penis’. So by leaving the accent off the ‘o’, the final line in the sign means:

The doorway to the beauty of Penis Island.

*snigger* What? We’re not laughing.

Penis Island!

Local councillor Len Scouller told the Daily Record sign makes them all look “bloody stupid”:

I’m not a Gaelic speaker but I would apologise to people who are Gaelic speakers and we will rectify it right away.

Penis Island. That is all.
