Shut up, something? I recognise a few words...one of the Welsh boys at school taught me some swearing.

No offence meant of course...I always got on really well with the Welsh people at school.

da iawn, bach. cae dy geg = shut up. i haven't really spoken welsh since primary school- all i have used since and can now remember are random insults.

and no offence taken. wales is great. never rains and all the people are dead happy, as is common knowledge

Heh, Geoff, you must speak some Chinese to me one day. It'll be great...I won't be able to understand you.

UndiscoverdSelf, have you ever read the Xenophobe's guide to the Welsh? Good book.

I think Pol was actually expelled once?
Expelled once, compulsory transferred once (i.e. basically expelled twice )

LOL, wild! I've only ever used hairgel once though, so you have me beat.



Hmm, it was so long ago I barely remember it, but I know I got it from a convenience store kind of place near my boarding school. They basically had three sections: one for food, one for mail (it doubled as a local post office), and one for everything else. I remember finding the tampons among everything else, but I don't really remember what other stuff was stored with it.

When I found out later what tampons were actually used for and where they were put, I figured out why they expanded in liquid.
fair enough

howwever as we all know from countless ads etc

it;s expanding SIDEWAYS that is important and we must shun inferior brands that merely lengthen

Cuireann sé mi-áthas orm é seo a rá, ach ní rabhas in ann tusa a thuiscint ar chor ar bith Cad a dúirt tu as Béarla/Gaeilge?

Ní féidir liom ach “bore da” agus cupla focal eile a rá as do theanga!

Léigheas arís é agus thuigeas “siarad cymraeg” – sin “ag labhairt Briotanais/speaking Welsh”

I think these are urban legends, but they're funny:

In Taiwan, the translation of the Pepsi slogan "Come alive with the Pepsi Generation" came out as "Pepsi will bring your ancestors back from the dead."

Also in Chinese, the Kentucky Fried Chicken slogan "finger-lickin' good" came out as "eat your fingers off."


The perils of English-Chinese.

Well, it's a good conversation starter anyway.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say too. The "Chow" certainly sounds like it's Cantonese.

I can see why that is the case, but I've never seen it in an advert. Which ones do you watch!

Nah, the Xenophobe's guides are pretty irreverent. They'd never be on a university reading list.
