Fractured English from around the world, including the U.S.A. I have seen some of these elsewhere, but many were new to me, and I got several good laughs out of the book!

Sign in a Milan pension: "No ladies in the bra--she's lounge only."

Subtitle in a Hong Kong movie: "I'll fire aimlessly if you don't come out!"

Advertisement at a Detroit savings and loan: "Ask about our plans for owning your home."

Menu items in Egypt: "Muscles of Marines; Lioness Cutlet; French Fried Ships; Hot Dog Mustache Pringle; Bosom of Chicken."

Great little book of bad English. I had seen some of these before, but my favorite was:

In New York City: Marital Arts Studio

This is because there is a place on Ashland Avenue here in Chicago that I have driven past probably 10,000 times in my lifetime that is a dirty bookstore. It has a big sign that says "Marital Aids." EVERY TIME I pass that sign I think it says "Martial Arts." It's one of those silly mind tricks.

Thanks Rampallion for letting me in on this one before it starts its journey around the country!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book--what word person with a sense of humor wouldn't? Before I sent it on its way to the next BookCrosser, I enjoyed it all over again by letting my daughter read it while she was in from Michigan this weekend. She has a great giggle, and of course, I made her read aloud the ones that really cracked her up. Now it's on its way to Missouri by first class mail.

Received via mail today. Thanks for sharing Rampallion.
What a funny little book. Here are a few of my favorites:

In a Tokyo ladies' room: Tidy HO!

On a faucet in a Finnish washroom: To stop the drip, turn cock to right.

In the window of a Swedish furrier: Fur coats made for ladies from their own skin.

At the Budapest Zoo: Please do not feed the animals. If you have any suitable food, give it to the guard on duty.
I will mail to Daidy tomorrow if I'm able to get her address tonight.

Released on Saturday, June 21, 2003 at Postal Release in USPS, postal release USA.

Releasing via mail to Daidy. Enjoy!

I haven't rated this book because, what can you say? My husband and I have enjoyed reading these. I could probably offer a few of my own from my ESL students.

Hahahahahaha. We are driving around with this in the car to read at odd moments. More later.

Well, time for this book of manglish to move on to North Carolina. There are definitely some funnies here.

My favorite part was the movie subtitles and dubbed dialog section. (Ever seen Kung Pow?)

Also the Hungarian Madonna interview!!!! Reminded me of thje "wild and crazy guys" of the old Saturday Night Live!

Mailed out to theresalynn57 on 10/20/03. Sorry for the delay.
