There must be a really peed off translator working over there


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.

"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..."
