Lost In Thai Translation
January 5, 2015
The Thais love English on their clothes. It's pretty flippin' amazing:
Thai unnofficial motto: If it's in English, it's on my chest.
The more obtuse, the better, the Thais say.
London is hot as well:
How about Boy Kingman? Huh? What about THAT Thai Hipsters?
There is even a local Zonie baseball team logo over here on a woman's chest:
Arizona Diamondbacks T-shirt spotted in Mae Phang
But it isn't just Ts, the Thais love to name their businesses with English names and on signs with English names, but somtimes it gets a little warped in the translation:
The Greasy Nail & Spa (right next to the Gassy Bowl)
Well, Happy New Yewr to you too, Thais!
Mai Dang Automotive. Dang, I've got one of those too!
"Would a greasy nail by any other name smell so sweet?"
