Friday FAIL

My good friend Erica sent me these photos of products with dubious labels. Google Translate has a lot to answer for.

From Hermione's Heart

These are hilarious! Thanks for the laugh Hermione :)


ronnie said...

Very funny.

Have a wonderful weekend.


Erica said...

Ha -- knew you'd like these! :-)

You can't make this stuff up.

Hermione said...

Roz - My pleasure!

Ronnie - You have a great one too.

Erica - They were all wonderful. We have the same taste in idiocy:)

To whom it may concern,
We are trademark counsel to The Moonlight Bambi Ranch of Carson Nevada. It has come to our attention that you are infringing our trademark MEGAPUSSY for "entertainment services" by your use of "Megapussi" on what appear to be potato chips. Please be advised that my client has invested considerable time and expense in promoting its MEGAPUSSY brand services, which consists of an hour long threesome with the ladies of your choice. We therefore demand that you cease and desist and remove "megapussi" from your product or we'll send Helga the Horrible to your potato chip factory with instructions to spank every one of you.

Hi Hermione,
Believe it or not I have actually had/made Barfy! It is originally an Indian dessert consisting of brown sugar and coconut. Very good, unlike the name implies.

We too have weird product names when translated into other languages. For example, the Chevy Nova actually means "No Go" in Spanish.

As you said, I like the timing of this post after my comment on your Spam post.


Hermione said...

Joey - You're welcome.

Leigh - I thought so too.

Rollin - That will scare them into changing the name of their product - ROFLMAO!

A. Lurker - I've never heard of Barfy. SO it's delicious, hmm?

We have Homo milk here, which was also one of the photos. I take it for granted because I see it on the shelves all the time. It only means "homogenized" to us, not a gay reference.
