Those are hysterical!

HA, classic! I nearly spit cappuccino at the computer while reading these.

I have a dear friend that works as an executive of a large well know company. Her job includes traveling to many different countries at a moments notice. She is always telling us of these kind of translation goofs and has begun to collect them. Hope she gets to enjoy this soon.
