Goes well with the laptop beef
Viruses, worms and now bacteria. At least the Chinese figured out a way to make rice out of it.
Not passed by McAfee or Norton.
GOD! If you ate off my keyboard, you would sure get some bacteria.
No, thanks, I have already got a laptop
Is a Bacteria the back-door of a Cafeteria?
I think I’ll order number 28.
“I’m a PC.”
“I’m a Mac.”
Darn Chinese Biology books. It’s supposed to be “Bacteria Lice.”
All entries come with Apple Ricepad as desert.
May I have my Blackberry topped with whip cream?
Yu like flies with that?
Dude, you’re gettin’ some rice!
Maybe the main customer are software developer.
Sorry to be today’s kill joy but I’m pretty sure the characters for “desktop” mean “Taiwan-style” and the other characters mean “rice with a variety of mushrooms mixed in”, i.e., “Taiwan-style Mushroom Rice”.
But “desktop bacteria” is probably more apt, anyway!
Which reminds me of one of my fave movie lines:
“That’s fried RICE you PLICK!”
All over your desk like white on communicable rice
Does the desktop bacteria come with a mouse?
Desktop bacteria rice: served at office potlucks since 1965!
THE meal of cubicle warriors!
…I’d also like the corn muffin with germs, please.
It’s the next generation of GM foods – sequenced right in your cubicle!
Desktop keyboards- delicious but deadly!
Could also be served with Windows Vista or 7 (Sorry, Windows XP owners…)! These also cancels out Norton or McAfee, because when you add them both, they had bad spamming taste.
…served with Screensaver Salmonella and a rich Aspergillus Font-du
don’t forget your free DIARRHOEA shirt on your way out!!!
If I wanted to eat off a desktop, I’d order Mac ‘n’ cheese.
“A desktop computer carefully laden on a heaping bed of rice and served to you by a waiter with a bad head cold.”
Wonder if the appropriate authorities should MONITOR the microbe levels in that place???
Intel’s new processor “Quad Core Bacteria”
Comes with a side of spam (unless you have McAfee).
Reported to be the cause of the motherboard of all stomache-aches.
This would explain the debit machine going bluescreen on me…
At least it’s not made with a virus.
~ Pete: correct, Taiwan style.
but the translator has a bright idea: when in doubt, transliterate. Xiangu simply means fresh mushrooms.
Pete: Does your last name begin with a Y? I think I may know you.
Maybe followed by an iPad cream dessert 😉
Yugan: My hanzi dictionary doesn’t have the character for “gu” in Xianggu. But I know that xian1 or xian3 means “fresh” from my prior Japanese study (“sen” in Japanese). But I can’t figure what “gu” means.
Za2Jun4 or Za2Jun1 appears to mean “Assorted Mushrooms”. (Or as my dictionary had it “assorted fungi”.)
Anna Rexia: No, my last name definitely does NOT begin with a Y. Sorry, no cigar. I’m not currently living in Asia these days, either, but rather somewhere on the east coast of North America.
What kind of dictionary doesn’t have è‡? It means mushroom. è‰å—é ,å…«åŠƒ/grass radical, 8 strokes, gu first tone.
Assorted fungi it is.
Anna: my surname doesn’t begin with a Y either. Isn’t that a coincidence?
Yugan: That would be William McNaughton’s “Reading & Writing Chinese” published by Tuttle. I’ve got both the simplified and traditional character editions, but only looked in the Simplified since the image was stated by webmaster to be from the Mainland.
Will check the traditional edition, but when I looked for “Gu1” the character wasn’t there.
Methinks I need a bigger, more extensive set of Hanzi Cidian!
Thanks for the follow-up.
Pete / Ani: è‡ is è‡ simplified and traditional. Methinks I agree, it’s time for you to get a more extensive dictionary.
I am NOT touching that bacteria filled desktop ever!
now you see why you need to clean your pc….might get a virus….
This is Epic… o.o
hello? are your potatoes running?
Just throw it through the Windows.
– Would you like a tablet with that?
