Here are a few funny pics that we’ve collected since our departure…

Tanzanian "Fat Spread." I can't believe it's not butter!

Spotted in the Air Asia catalog, on a flight from Bangkok to Yangon: get your very own Oakland Raiders Air Asia model plane. (No other NFL teams were offered.) Huh?!

Elabola. Not a good name for a snack bar.

Bug / Van Hybrid

Seen in Turkey: Yes, that's indeed a VW bug welded to the top of a VW van. Nice!

No Comment

In Turkey: No Comment.

A "growing" for breakfast?

A "growing" for breakfast? What the *&$@!# is a "growing"? Well, it's a croissant that you run through Google Translate.

Not really 8 a Huit

Working hard in France: The name of this store translates as 8 to Eight, meaning 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. But it's 2:00 pm and the place is closed. Figures... Everything's always closed in southern France.

Everybody's got lice!

Seen in a French pharmacy window: Here's how to conjugate the verb "avoir" (to have)... as in having head lice. What a lovely way to learn!

Exploding Generators!?!

Improper translation in Madagascar: In English, this sign states that plugging in electrical appliances could lead the hotel's generator to malfunction. In French, however, it states that the generator could EXPLODE!

Very useful advice!

Seen in our hotel room in Amsterdam. What kind of hotels are we staying in? What kind of guests do they have?!? Gypsies?

Seen in Florence, Italy

Florence, Italy. Not quite sure about the significance, but this was right by Dante's house. A fallen angel, perhaps, relegated to installing "Do Not Enter" signs?

Dalai LOMO

Dalai LOMO in Santiago, Chile. Lomo means "tenderloin".

OK Bar

In Bologna: Not a great bar, just an okay bar.

Buticrac

Spotted in the Calama airport in Chile. Not quite sure what "buticrac" flavored pizza tastes like, but, uh, I think we'll pass.

God Smak

Seen in Norway: There'll be hell to pay if you don't like this cheese.

Viking Hotdog

Seen at the Viking Ship Museum in Norway: Note that the hotdog looks a lot like a Viking ship!
