Good to Know

We had wings for dinner tonight. This handi-wipe came with our food. Don't you love it when packaging is actually helpful?

And what exactly would happen if this was used in that capacity?

I simply can't imagine! Do you think they'd send people to confiscate it? And then... um... "un-use" that in that area? ew. Yuck. Packaging is wacky. Read the book "So Long and Thanks for All the Fish" for some laughs about the instructions for use on the outside of the box of toothpicks. ;-)

You might also enjoy http://www.engrish.com It's a site that finds asian advertising that uses English incorrectly and sometimes they have instructions. My favorite set of instructions is

"Danger! A dangerous toy. This toy is being made for the extreme priority the good looks. The little part which suffocates when the sharp part which gets hurt is swallowed is contained generously. Only the person who can take responsibility by itself is to play."

YES!!! Yes, I love that site! It's a great place for refreshing perspective. Did you know that "over there" they have their own site poking fun at us for our mistakes with their characters and their language? It's true! They take pictures of caucasians with poorly configured kanji tatoos and post them on similar websites! :-D

I only have one item with Kanji on it and I have no idea what it says. (and it's a pet toy, not something I wear!)
