Does Not Compute...

Driving up to Basel today, we passed a transport truck with this sign on it:



Obviously the branding team that came up with this name and logo didn't test market it to English speakers.

As if that wasn't laughter-inducing enough, we then passed an edge community near Bern called Wankdorf. I wish I had a picture of the scaffolding tower rising from a hill near the autobahn sheathed in banners announcing WELCOME TO WANKDORF CITY!

I love Germanized English!

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
