It's got to be Photoshop, but damn that's good. I laughed ut loud at that one, possibly scaring a house-mate.

That inspired me to snap this at a local garden centre.

That bit of produce may have been at your local garden centre, but certainly did not originate anywhere near there. The verbiage in that one reminds me very much of when Japanese goods that required intelligent labelling were becoming common and the level of literacy in the labels was, well, "below par" and sometimes quite humorous. One of my favourites was a packet of silica gel desiccant that had a note on it of, "not good to eat". Damn, I wish I'd saved that.

Heh.

The garden centre is in northwestern Toronto. That part of the city is home to a massive south asian population, chiefly Indian and Pakistani immigrants, and language errors of that sort are common but not usually rich enough to snap. By massive I mean well over half a million. Wanna eat good or watch a cricket match, you know where to be.

Did I ever report the schematic I had for one of my now-lost camcorders? It was in the official Sony service manual. The sections of circuitry were all titled. One section was titled "Lipple Filter". I kid you not.
