Just finished reading this thread over a period of two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. I now run the grave risk of mixing up my spellings!

Got these in a chain e-mail. I have not included some which I think are already featured here. Even after that, if there are repeats, please don't Condor me.

Chinese do have some major fight with English.

Snapped it at a shop in Vizag. I'd have bought the ladder, if I understood what the "punchline" meant

I used to work for a Japanese company in London, and I asked my expat colleague about this sort of thing on Japanese packaging. He said they use it in the same way that Westerners might sometimes use Chinese characters: as pure decoration, with no regard for any meaning at all!

I think you should have bought that ladder. Not sure how it might have changed your life; but looks like pretty powerful stuff!

Only thin is, you might have needed a writhing board if the ladder had broken!

From my recent trip to Aamby valley here (Not a YetiBlogģ but a Photologue - My visit to Aamby Valley)

How do you stick a bell on a wall? Pics of Quirky Signs-dsc_7730_l.jpg

I even contacted some of the support team to check if these particular fruits were against TBHP rules and they said they weren't sure
