Lost In Translation

Thanks to Krisann who writes, “this sign was posted on the door of a great Vietnamese noodle place down the street from us.  Great people running it, we love to eat there…  and yes, they talk about the same as they write!  It’s always fun to try and interpret their English for one another after they leave the table.”

    (Just kidding about the Klingon bit)

    @ al skdjfh
    No one said that speaking multiple languages is a bad thing. No one said that the failed translation means they are not smart individuals. The only thing that this blog pointed out was that the failed translation was funny.
