It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

This kind of amused me in the supermarket this morning.

"Sugar" here is a common mistranslation for "candy". The two words are the same In Chinese.

糖【táng】 sugar; sugared; in syrup; sweets; candy.

 

No. I didn't buy them!

You know you spend a lot of time on eG when a song comes on the radio, and your brain immediately tries to tell you that Freddie Mercury is singing about a "killer" kouign.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

It took me a little while to get  the clerk in the Chinese store  to say "pRessure" cooker and not "pLeasure" cooker.

 

I was looking for a replacement gasket.

 

Actually, I like "pleasure cooker" better. I use it so often to make cooking easier

THANK YOU!!!  I adore

I think I may have posted something like this before but I'm not sure so here it is again.  These instructions were on a package of meatballs I bought at Costco today.
