This kind of amused me in the supermarket this morning.

 

Sea salt pineapple mints sugar?

"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.

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 

pastis and have written him several times.  He has graciously replied once or twice.  Really, I'm not stalking him.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

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.

Totally inappropriate because "advise" is a verb.  My doctor told me to eat more white meat.  Berkshire pork.  Pork, the other white meat.

 

Not entirely funny, the woman who was eaten by wild pigs in Texas.  No one actually saw the pigs.  My theory it was zombies.

I used to make our dog a heartshaped Alpo "meatloaf" on his birthday.    Doubt he noticed.
