Unique? You bet!

I read a column in yesterday's paper about how Inglish (Indian English) is the slowly becoming the most-spoken variant of English in the world. Well, here's some food for thought:
This pamphlet has been hanging on my colleague's pinboard for a while. His cousin was handed the pamphlet somewhere in the market.

Hehehehe...I'm too lazy to post similar ads from Korea. Plus, it's almost 4am and I'd have to go out and find some, but there are similar ads here too. The expat community gets quite a laugh on a regular basis.

@expatjane: Yes, I have been to this site called http://www.engrish.com where one can see the gems of English usage in the far east. Visit it sometime for a few more laughs.

everytime i see this post, am reminded how we laughed while eating our sandwich at subway...good comic relief for some time :D

Tanushree said...

@Aparna: Yes. Actually there are so many places where we can see such humour all around us, but mostly it needs a camera to capture it. This one was conveniently scannable.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I really enjoyed reading your comment. Ribtickling funny!

@M: Thanks for stopping by! That issue is really close to my heart. As the title of my blog says, "I laugh, therefore I am". Glad to have been able to make some others laugh too. :)

Last comment, last-ditch effort!

Tanushree said...

OK one more last comment.

Bald Monkey said...

Nope ! THIS is the Last Comment -- the lesser known country cousin of the immensly popular Last Laugh.

If you can give me a good hack to put a readable summary of "recent comments" on my sidebar, then I will cede the last laugh, comment, whatever to you. Till then, I shall have the prerogative to the "last comment". :)

"I laugh, therefore I am" you know what? This is so damn close to what I have in my profile that it almost feels eerie. Like minds I am presuming.

@M: You know, my very good friend Aparna has a very similar title on her blog too, which wasn't influenced by mine, coz she did not know the translation from the Latin when she named hers. Guess it goes to show that we gals spend some time thinking about the mysteries of existence. Here's another good one: "I doubt, therefore, I might be". Have fun!
