Wait a minute, the food is WILD, everyting else is NAXI, but what about the Horse and the Bow?

After reading about the “wild food toasting” I was half expecting a disclaimer like “flamethrower not included.”

Sounds more like a pitch for a retirement home. Or methadone clinic.

Ah, fond memories of our family visits to the Folk Musiem… making paper, dancing, playing the bow… ridding the place of horses… [sigh] good times!

I found out the Naxi spinning was organized by a spin doctor

Man, how can they mess up the work Fork! The 1969 Oneida Presidential chilled salad fork is by far their best exhibit.

Wait — “spining”? Do they rip out somebody’s spine?

I’m not so much worried about the Naxis of the past … it’s the Neo-naxis that I worry about…

I’m sure that when this sign was typed up, someone’s keyboard was configured a bit wrong. If ye substitute “Naxi” with “Taxi”, ye get:
. . Taxi resturant (Cabbie’s fry-up),
. . Taxi spinning (A typical cabbie’s U-turn), and
. . Taxi dancing (That, however, I cannot explain!)

Conclusion: This is actually a transport museum! 🙂

Wild food toasting – Daily demonstrations on the hour! (Please bring a packed lunch) 🙂

Last time I played the Bow in the UK, I got arrested for illegal possession of a weapon…And they reckon that China is a restrictive country? 😮

I like this one –it’s tricky because “Naxi” is about the only thing not Engrish here! (They’re an ethnic group located in parts of the Sichuan Province). “Hereis a funny place” inded!

Ahh, I wasn’t aware of that…It looked like a simple typing error, or a keyboard problem that got the Xs and Ts mixed up! 😮
Cheers for enlightening me though, I’ll have to try looking the tribe up online! 🙂

What?! Why are they going to be ridding of the horse?! Don’t tell me that’s what they meant by “enjy the wild food”!!!!

It’s a holistic experience. The Naxi concept of riding the food you eat, dancing and making the dung paper you need in the funny place.

Naxis? I shall resist making a crack about Nazis for the sake of China…and instead say, “Ridding the Horse? Mr. Ed ain’t gonna like that…”
