A hotel has got itself a little bit tongue tied - much to the amusement of everyone else.

In a massive translation fail, the Erbil International Hotel labelled its meatballs as “Paul is dead,” according to this photo uploaded to Twitter.

Best translation fail. The arabic spells out a transliteration of 'meat ball' in English - which sounds like 'mayit baul', or Dead Paul.

And it looks like it could just be catching on:

The hotel's mistake also single handedly reignited conspiracy theorists who think the original Paul McCartney died in a car crash in 1966.

Those are some powerful meatballs.
