    "So, this is what girls who make `that face` are interested in..."




    In earlier generations, the word "slut" was related to the word "slob."
    The label should probably say "Soup for Lazy Chicks..."

    I`ve read that the issue is usually caused by automated translation from simplified Chinese symbols to English (or many other languages). The same symbol can have multiple meanings. A human who understands both languages can judge the correct translation by context. A computer (or a person translating into a language they don`t understand by just using a dual language dictionary) can`t.
