WTF? (What THE? Fridays) Part 11

Hopefully continuing collection of pictures of things that make me scratch my head, chuckle, or just generally go–HUH?

Because everybody else has a Wordless Wednesday or TMI Tuesday, or whatever, and I want one, too.

This week’s WTF is brought to you by the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. And it includes Engrish, so if you are offended by that, do not read on. It makes me giggle and I find it amusing, but I’m not like, ‘Oh my god, these people are idiots because they don’t write English perfectly.’  I have spent my “career” working with people whose first language is not English. Mistakes are funny in any language. If I started writing things in Thai like, ‘To the good sir with funny respect and froggy legs: Not to go with the waves redly! Poop!’ I would laugh at my own damn self!


I actually feel like Dr. P might be an intentionally hilarious play-on-words for these adult diapers. Well done, brand namers, well done.

The story of a musical play that we kept forgetting to go to. I like that Ho Nguyet Co knocks herself up!

"The boys roasted salted." Heh."The shaggy sheep boy." This was a seafood restaurant.

What. The. Friday? Poor little chickens! Or whatever! They look so sad with their little claws sticking up out of the cans, don't they?

Friday Update:

1. I’m off to Phitsanulok on Monday for a bit. Anybody been? Any tips?

2. Jason started watching 30 Rock and sent me this text message: “I can’t believe how much like Liz Lemon your psyche wants to be. No wonder you’re in love with her.” I’m not sure how I feel about that.

3. Harry Potter 7A is a very good movie! I was impressed.

4. The new Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp, however, is not a very good movie. More like a very crap movie.

    heehee! Oh, my, I laughed so hard at this one! Those sad little chicken feet! Boys Roasted Salted! Ha!

  2. Phitsanulok is pretty awesome. My favorite place there is Wat Si Chum (this one When I was there it was totally silent and peaceful. If you’re lucky enough to find it in the same state, sit down, take a few deep breaths and stop your brain for a moment. For me that was easy, but you might find it a bit of a challenge ’cause you’re smrt and all.

    I think the chickens look like little toy soldiers hanging out in soda cans.

  4. these are awesome! i worked on a fundraiser recently where some materials had been “translated” into spanish. when one of our fluent staff members went in to make some edits, she discovered that we were offering things like, “the pig of the long sun” (summer sausage). hilarious AND totally embarrassing.

  5. the boys roasted salted sounds like a new band – excellent dude!

    holy crap – i can’t keep up with your blog!!!!!!!

    It was nice meeting you this evening even though it was short and sweet. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your evening where ever it took you. I’m sure Melanie or the blogs will update me.

    I thought I’d send you a link to my/our blog. I enjoy reading yours, especially the WTF posts. Hilarious and honest, a great combo. is mine. Feel free to read through it whenever you need to procrastinate. :-)

    • Hey Mary! It was great meeting you guys, too. I hope our paths cross again soon. Love the pictures on your blog–and that scene of the train going through the market was amazing!

  7. Those chicken feet are total weirdness. I like weird :-)
    (I’ll have to keep my eye out).

    One SE Asian delicacy I’ve never taken to is chicken butts on a stick. Parson’s noses are what I usually throw out, but not here…

    • I had to read a couple of times (early morning) because I thought you HAD taken to chicken butts on a stick, and I was going to be like, ‘Well, Catherine, to each her own!’ :)

  8. :-D Chicken butts on a stick are bags of fat wrapped in… Yuk.

  9. Yes, it is a very crap movie, would have been mo’ crappier without your popcorn though ;)
