A sex shop in Munich’s main railway station has got special permission to sell condoms, porn DVDs and sexy skin lotion on Sundays after three local judges ruled they were legitimate travel supplies.
Three administrative judges visited Erotic World ahead of the court hearing to inspect the shop’s goods, carefully assessing whether each item might come in handy on a long journey.
This is an actual restaurant take-away menu from a place improbably called the Hotel Cafe Deluxe; and which serves Veg, Non Veg and Chinese. Take a look at the menu.
This is the back page, but I have it on as it has the fold-out front page on. So we see such delicacies as various souses (sauces) and a crish pea chicken (crispy?). Incidentally souce is spelt sause in places, so there is more than one way to err. One learns from one’s mistakes and finds new ways to make mistakes. And let us not pass over shop for soup, and don’t even ask me what Attention Soup and Lump Pung Shop are – for I have no idea. And what about the great Chicken One don ciliyr soup (Chicken Wonton Clear Soup). Creme for cream would have been okay with a grave accent in the right place.
Those are not all the errors, of course. As they say in text books, the rest is left as an exercise for the reader.
And here is the main page. Once again enough hilarity almost on every line. Competition time folks, find as many errors as possible. Comment away.
Note that clicking on the photos will take you away to flickr.com, so you might want to Control-Click / Command-Click to force open in a new tab instead.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch spends 1000 words on the controversial topic of whether the earth has four or five oceans. This is obviously important as Ladue Middle School earth science teacher Kathy Murphy explains “resistance to accepting the notion of the Southern Ocean to opposition regarding a change in Pluto’s status.”
This is a serious issue and need debating. The National Geographic Society refuses to recognize this as does the US. Good for them. We can’t have oceans declaring themselves independent. What about school books? What about quizzes?
Won’t someone think of the children?
By the way, did you know that Greenland is an independent country? It retains some relationship to Denmark, but it has self-rule. With a population of about 50,000 (or in Mumbai terms, 10 local trains) and a parliament of 31 members with multi-party democracy, it has to be crazy holding elections there. Polls probably open during lunch hour and everyone gets together to celebrate in the evening. The coat of arms of the country is a polar bear with its tongue sticking out.
