Funny Things I've Seen

There are always ironic situations on the road which can be really funny when taken out of context or the translation is slightly off. Some are just plain funny. Here are a few of my favs.

Look Mom! It comes in a can!!

I wonder what they sell here.

This is a shop tailor made for Adkins Diet people.

The Malaysian Listerine man must be rushing out on an emergency bad breathe call. Hose em down!!!

Everything grows big here in the jungle!! I feel like I'm in the Woody Allen movie Sleeper.

If the veggies grow that big, image if you saw one of critters in the next photo. I think if ones of these guys jumped out of the trees, I'd pass out, especially because this is in the middle of KL!! NO dangerous species please. That said, check out my next post because it will include photos of some of the insects of the Highlands.

Man how I wish we'd had that digital camera when we were in India! We could've gotten shots of the "use me" penguins... the "bacteria resistant briefs"... "do not urinate"... "stickers will be prosecuted"...

Judging from the Chinese characters it means "Singapore & Malaysia", but that doesn't stop it from being funny to native English speakers!

How happy I was to see you being so efficient. Why wait for SARS when you can cut the middle steps and ingest it!
You've learned to cut corners and go for the big prize.

Thanks for the adorable photo. I have reproduced it and share it with much pride.
