lost in translation

 

While in Shanghai, a fellow photographer bought something (I think it was a jacket) at a department store and this is the tissue paper that was used to wrap the item before it went in the bag. There was a lot of “creative” english translation around so I wonder if anyone associated with the store even realized what it said. Another favorite of mine was a beautifully made sign in a large park that gave rules for behavior including, “Barebacked or lying randomly is prohibited in the park” and “No spitting, pissing outside toilet or littering of fruit peelings”.
