Thursday, January 04, 2007No seriously...noticed something today and am trying to figure out if it's bad translation, or symptomatic of a REALLY big problem in China.
What am I talking about? Well, Elnora got one of those little grocery baskets filled with fake groceries for Christmas. You know, fruits, little boxes of cereal, ketchup bottles and so on. Well, one of the bottles is this little white bottle that's labeled "Chocolate Milk." I happened to look at it today when she was "sharing" all the food with me.
Take a look...
Notice anything strange? Read the text on that little fireburst up there toward the top. Yeah...that's it...the text that says "No Antiseptic."
Now what in the WORLD is that supposed to mean?
Does most milk in China have antiseptic in it and this is supposed to be a selling point? If so...egads.
What I'm guessing is that it's one of those infamous translation mistakes. It's probably SUPPOSED to say "No Antibiotics" which is a big selling point of organic milk here in the U.S. At least that's what I hope it means.
Hmm...now that I think about it, maybe I should send this image in to David Letterman... ;)
