I dare anyone not to laugh at least once at this English translation of a Chinese menu.

Warning: Some language is strong, even if it is inadvertant.

For those of you who think this is funny you obviously have never had a big steaming bowl of fresh immerse miscellaneous germ and a refreshing cold Sprit.

That's good eats people!

And of course as we all know four out of five geologists recomend eating a mountain. Because it's good to eat a mountain.

That's a really good find Grady.

Right up there with all your base are belong to us.

I'm having trouble deciding between the "Cowboy Leg Beautiful Pole" and the "Doublle Boiled Forest Frog."

They both looks so good!!!

I read it and Laughed.
Then, for some reason, about 20 minutes later, I felt the need to read it again, and laugh.

Oh dear God! I laughed until I cried! I need to know where that restaurant is!

Thanks for sharing that Grady!

Good find Grady. Well, I have stayed in China for some time and I am currently staying in Vietnam. I saw these stuff personally. Sometimes, in big billboards. I laughed so hard too.

Sometimes, this has something to do with the structure of their language. (I can speak both Mandarin & Vietnamese) Exact translation from Chinese to English or vice versa is not possible all the time.

For example, I mentioned to a friend of mine who was opening a Chinese restaurant in Vietnam about his menu, it says "China Food", "China Juice" etc.

So I told him that I think it would be more appropriate to say "Chinese" than "China". He agreed to me for the Chinese food. But for the juice, he explained that it will be gross if we call it Chinese juice. In Chinese, that would literally means the juice of a Chinese person. No wonder even some more Chinese that I know personally who operates restaurant in Europe, you can see in the menu, business card etc that it is being written as ''China Restaurant" or "China Food". It is complicated.

Ouchhhh my stomach hurts... I laughed so long and hard that I cried...

Don't ever bring me to that restaurant, I won't be able to control myself, which may create a scene to the bemusement of everyone else there.
