Rates alongside something I saw on a Chinglish menu in China

Crispy skin infections

Never did find out what it actually was.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

And that reminds me of a Portuguese menu containing "Dirty Pig". Turned out it was Black Pig that the translator was missing

It was a recipe containing pork from their local black pigs, Jan. They also had "Language Pig" on the menu Guess what that was?

The waitress could speak a little English and we informed her, as best we could, of the translation errors.

Language Pig should, of course, have been Pork Tongue
