Monday Contest #2

Remember this?

The bottle-opener that I posted as my in-case-of-emergency when I couldn't find the fire extinguisher? Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is...

Tell me what it says.

Now, I know what I think it says, but I didn't get my translation from a native speaker of the language that it's in -- close, but not quite -- so I could be wrong. And no, I'm not going to tell you what language it is.

You can say something funny that will make me laugh, or you can actually try to figure it out. The winner will be the one that I like best, which may just turn out to be the truth. Who knows?

And, since we're on a translation kick this morning, you're playing for this:


I already gave one of these away, but I bought two and was saving the other for a special occasion. This, apparently, is as special as it gets here at the AssVac.

Now go!


My finger, by the way, is not included in the prize.

I think it says 'please open my beer before i club you with this big stick.'

Drink softly and carry a big stick, in case some damn fool tries to steal your beer or spill your beer then hit him in the knee caps. (loosely translated of course and I think it is in Pig Latin. Some of those foreign language words have double meanings so It may say, restroom key)

I love that book! My favorite bad asian translation isn't in that book. There's a brand/property in Japan called "White". It's a caucasian girl who looks very much like a tall Prec. Moments figure in anime style. Much of the "White" product has bad English translations on it that say "White is Good" or "White is Best - Love White". It just makes me laugh...

Top is "Drink Order"

Bottom is something like: "It was paid, was it, have forgotten."

cake said...

The top says, "The meaning of life is 42."

And the bottom says, "Just kidding."

No, really, I wouldn't lie to you.

Drinking Rules: Next round is on you, or I bash you with this tree trunk.

(Seriously, I thought maybe objects in this image might be smaller than they appear...but nope, there is the opener thingy at the top for scale...)

Jenni said...

It says: "In case of fire, use to open beer, place finger over opened top, shake bottle, spray beer. Repeat until fire is extinguished".
