Travelling is sure to bring some funny moments, but it's probably a fair bet that travellers don't expect to be warned againt tucking into the carpet.

This funny sign was captured at Chennai International Airport by businessman Justin Ross Lee, owner of Pretentious Pocket.

He posted it on Facebook with the message: "What an outrage India.

"All I want to do is go down on your curry-stained airport carpet..."

The long list of mistranslated signs in tourist destinations around the world always raises a smile, but it's unclear what they intended by this sign.

The best guess is that they don't want people to eat on the carpet.
