Giggles I love it

This is fabulous and I'm here for it any time you post one!

Antidotal reference...
A few years back I was trying to place an emergency food order for a woman who only spoke Spanish while I only spoke English and ASL. The food order was a printed list of available food and other items that one could check off with amounts needed; 2 toothbrushes, 1 box of oatmeal, 2 lbs. ground beef, etc. Things were going along pretty well via an odd game of charades and laughter until I got to the dairy section where I found "cottage cheese"...hmm, ok, how do you mime that? So I pulled out my computer (wondering why on earth I hadn't thought of google translate earlier) and selected English to Spanish and wrote "cottage cheese" click! "casa de queso"... what little Spanish I knew told me this was actually "cheese house" or "house of cheese"... after a lot of various attempts to describe American cottage cheese we laughed a lot and she decided against ordering any. lol

Vanillia ice cream..

"vanillia" !! so funny !
I have translated many menus for restaurants in Beaune because the originals were so terrible, and hilarious.

In Quebec, do they serve French toast with Canadian bacon? Or, is it just toast with bacon?

Corey - I don't care how it's written or translated - I'm ordering it! It is funny though!

Great translation. I want the runny heart one.

There are facebook pages dedicated to poorly translated Japanese into English, they call it Engrish. Quite amusing. :).
