Back in the 50's we'd see German camera manufacturers include technical manuals that were quite poorly translated into English. Today European products seem to make it here (North America) with manuals that are more useful than entertaining. Fortunately, China has stepped into the gap left by Germany in the 1950s and Japan in the 1960s. We've collected a few of these here for your chuckling.
|My daughter Martha found this one for me. It's great just for the marketing-speak: "It has become the slap-up neccessity of kitchen in modern times."|
|Some like this aren't all that funny but the use of words in inappropriae context is amusing. "Tender feel make it be used abroad." Note the placement of the item number in the tiny image of a computer monitor to try an lend an air of "high tech" to the product and the "1 Free 1" rondel at the bottom of the front label. That's baffling.|

|The foks at Sabre products in St. Laurent, Quebec really should look after packaging their wonderful products themselves. Instead they've left the job to their contracted manufactureers in China with the result that you now must "groon" your beloved pet.|
Here Stella, here girl... time to get grooned.
Hold still, damn it.
"No says just feeling". Well, I guess that says it all! Thanks!
If anyone knows what or who a Pocari is please let me know.
Not even to explore the organisation of a well.
There are no typos in the preceding text. That's what's on the package.
I've alway's wanted my own precicns of lady.
The front of the package is harmless enough, except for reversing the order of their photos but the instructions on the back are truly rich. I especially like the recommendation that 4 balls be used when they are sold in a package of 3. Just like the 8 hot-dog and 6 bun conspiracy I think or maybe like that "grassy knoll" thing.
For further stoopid (and very funny) English labeling check out these.
