If only they knew! Cringeworthy pictures show what happens when T-shirt slogans are lost in translation

Anyone who's ever watched a foreign language film will know that some things can get lost in translation.

Cool

AND THEN there's those T-shirt printing companies that know quite well what they're doing...

Like a tourist t-shirt that I saw on someone who had returned from a trip to Thailand back in the late 1980s or early 90s, that read "I got phuked in Phuket"..          Laughing

My Pops and my grandfather would have gotten loads of mileage out of a shirt like that; they'd have walked around going - 'help, me - pull my finger ...quick, I've got such a bad cramp in this finger, PLEASSSSSE'

They sell one in New Orleans that reads, "I got bourbon-faced on Shit Street."

I always think it's weird when you see people in the Middle East or Africa wearing shirts of American sports teams. Once saw a boy in Iraq on the news, wearing a Dallas Stars hockey jersey Smile

Or when you go to other countries and their markets try to sell you fake sports wear. They happily wave a t-shirt at you and say "Look! Nike!" And it clearly says "Nake" with the little tick next to it.

I did buy one once just to wear for a joke, and it was a lovely burnt orange colour. When I got back to England all brown and obviously had been away, and obviously wearing the t-shirt as a joke, people would say "O M G! Like you didn't buy one of those fakes did ya? You know it's like, not real?"

Dunno why I bother.
