  1. “My Father was a very highly reputed coco merchandise”

    I wonder what he was, powdered chocholate milk mix? A hot chocolate mix? A nice chocolate flavored coffee perhaps? I’ve never heard of humans taking on these forms, but in the SPAM world I suppose anything is possible ;)

    I do hope Paul, that you will not betray her trust! We wouldn’t want the world knowing that people can take on the form of cocoa products, imagine the fortunes that could be made!

      On these things I usually put a sub-header that says, “Once Again It’s Time To Play Let’s Count The Typos!

      But this one has so many.

      Kind of hard to believe these things still appear..

    “You can enjoy the fresh air after finishing a civilized Urinating” I don’t think there’s anything more amusing than botched English translations :)

    • Dave,
      That site is a very popular one, and yes, the ad slogans that come out of Asia strike me as … odd. Then to mis-translate the idea… often makes a “perfect storm” of hilarity.

      That’s the great thing (don’t you know) — once you’ve been a winner once, the winnings just start rolling in!
