Chinglish ddung

Posted on September 4, 2011


The product below appears to be a package of sanitary wipes.

I assume the sanitary wipes can be used for many sanitation purposes, although the brand name “ddung” does seem to suggest a fairly specific use.

The next product wasn’t found in China, but was actually found on a Waitrose grocery store shelf in Scotland.

When my friends visit my house and snoop around my medicine cabinet, I would never want them to discover I brushed my teeth with retarDex or any other product that contained the word “retard”.  I assume the word “retard” is not as sensitive a word in Britain as it is in the United States, so this may not be funny to any other nationality.  Maybe also not funny to any Americans who are more mature than I am.


Check out this week’s caption contest finalists.  Don’t forget to vote at least once a day, every day in the caption contest.  If you have trouble remembering to vote every day because of your hectic work schedule, have you considered quitting your job and finding a job that doesn’t require you to do any work?  If you do find such a job, please tell me about it first so I can check it out for you and make sure it’s not a job for which I’d be a better candidate.
