And Awaaaaay We Go!

Thought for the day:  Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, and then beat you with experience.
It's that time again. Time to hop into the back of that ol' truck with Chopsticks and see if we can find some more funny written translations.

Translations from Oriental languages into English often provide an unintended source of humor. I guess you could say, What we have here is a failure to communicate. [Cool Hand Luke]


Once again, sincere thanks to the super duper folks at engrish.com for granting me permission to share their funny stuff with y'all.


























                           (Dunno about you, but I always prefer frank steaks over the liars.)

                                              Smiling? Good. My job here is done.

                             Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.

                              Man who eat many prunes get good run for money.

  1. I am definitely smiling. I serve some type of steamed crotch every time I cook.

    Love,

  3. I believe smorking is that sound one's butt makes on some plastic chairs. Noisy, but more fun than the non-smorking section.

  4. The signs are funny, but Geo's comment above is the one that almost made me spit my coffee.

  10. Janie- Put enough gravy, sweet 'n' sour sauce, or whipped cream on it, and anything tastes good.
