LOL! A friend of mine had a decal in his engine compartment with this written on it. I've been dying to find another like it. Anyone?

It's "pig german"

Hard to translate because it ain't real Deutsch.

"Das Machine Ich Nicht fur Gerfingerpoken und Mittengrabben!"

This car is not for poking and proding, or Don't touch.

"Folken Schannpen Das Springenwerk, Blowfusen, und Popenkorken Mit Spitzen-Sparken. "

No clue what they were trying to say, sounds funny though

"Ist Nicht Fur Gerwerken by Das Dumkoffen! "

Could be either, It's not to be operated by idiots or It's not to be worked on by idiots.

"Das Rubbernecken Sightseenen Floken Must Keepen Das Hands in Das Pockets und Watchen Der Blinken Lights "

The rubbernecking sight seeing people must keep their hands in their pockets and watch the blinking lights.

Achtung ist nicht "stop". Achtung ist "attention". Halt oder halten is "stop", ja.

Re: Translation needed

Yes, this is pidgin German with some serious spelling/grammar issues, but I'll try:

Achtung!
Attention!

Das Machine Ich Nicht fur Gerfingerpoken und Mittengrabben!
This machine is not for poking with fingers or grabbing with hands (gloves).

Folken Schannpen Das Springenwerk, Blowfusen, und Popenkorken Mit Spitzen-Sparken.
Will result in flying springs, blown fuses and popped corks with bright sparks.

Ist Nicht Fur Gerwerken by Das Dumkoffen!
Is not for operation by idiots (dummkopf=dumbhead)

Das Rubbernecken Sightseenen Floken Must Keepen Das Hands in Das Pockets und Watchen Der Blinken Lights
The rubbernecked sightseeing folks must keep their hands in their pockets and watch the blinking lights.

You know, here in the great NW, it gets dark early. Since driving in the dark is not my idea of fun, I thought I would liven up the postings a bit. Thanks to all who responded.

If anyone knows where to get a decal like the one I posted, I would be interested in getting one or two.
