Oh my!! You have caught me off guard, Thad

@IronHawk: I don't think its a PS job. This is quite a common sight out here, just that the wrong letters went off in this case.

Just pray that nothing goes wrong with this signage

For ages, Bangalore's Cantonment Railway Station has been abbreviated as "Cant." or "Cantt." but our authorities think otherwise and have coined a new one - "Cont." , someone probably thinks it's Continental!

An 'only-non-veg.' restaurant opened up last week here. They serve only non. veg. dishes (and tastes pretty good btw). A click from one of the pages in their menu:

Some of those are funny in the extreme --- but China has been enriching the world with its literal mis-translations for years, and there are whole sites full of that stuff, so what's the point of copying it here?

Can we have the ones we see? Or maybe seen by a friend, at at most, a friend of a friend?

Having a doubt, is the word 'Tekhnology' exist? Even the college's website uses the same...
