Broken: Box directions

I received an order of Christmas decorations in a corrugated box made in China.

I noticed that "sharp instructions" are forbidden. I had planned on getting into the package with the command "Open, @#$(*!! " but the Chinese supplier wanted me to be more polite. So I used a sharp instrument instead.


yay first! i think. anyways, broken, and funny.

Man this is scraping the bottom of the barrel


take barril in hand and see that you can reach bottom part with using suitable tools and that all materials is scraped off. then barrel bottom will be scraped.

Ditto my comment on the Magnavox Instructions - that too often these things are written by those for whom English is not their primary language. Manufacturers should be sure that the person who is writing/reviewing/printing anything that is to be shipped to places other than their native land be fluent in the language of the day! It IS funny - but sad and broken too that we accept this and just laugh at it. I'm not saying we start a movement or anything but is it too much to want things to just be right?

That's why you don't see Chineese politicians.

Maybe this particular person who translated this message drank the monkey-picked tea? XD
