Lost in Translation

One of the great things we saw in Thailand were the poorly mistranslated American t-shirts, films, posters, signs etc...

they always provided with a great insight into where our languages break down

Here is a funny post about a poorly translated from English, to Chinese, then back to English subtitle for the latest Star Wars movie Revenge of the Sith, or as it was translated, Backstroke of the West.
