– What’s the difference between garlic and flies?
– Garlic can fly but flies can not garlic!

I’ve always thought it was curious how “L” gets replaced by “R” (and vice versa) often in English text written by Asians, but it does it kind of selectively. So, “Garlic” is intact but “Fried” isn’t. I used to frequent a tropical fish store run by a group of Asians; wonderful, nice, helpful people. The names of the animals that they’d put on the glass of the aquariums were often mangled in this way — but again, not with every word. So you’d have Alowanas, Morries, Pratys, Goulamis. But you’d also have Coolie Roaches and African Flogs and Bline Shrimp.… Read more »

Keep it. I can’t stand either; together it would be nothing less than prepackaged vomit, to me. (I mean, “plepackaged”!) 😉

Actually, this label is not incorrect once you learn the other ingredient.

Arrives by the root-fecal journey.

When the zucchini laughs in the cabbage plot,
And the melon leaps onto the turf,
It is then that the carrots start talking rot,
And the garlic flies into the Surf.

For the garlic loved the ocean madly,
And watched the waves from afar,
But he surfed so very – very, badly,
That he was dumped on the sand with a jar.

@Stopchicks. I know not about other Asian languages. But. In Japanese the “L” is pronounced with a “rl” sound, which our (English attuned) ears, hear as an “R”.

Even in German VW (the car) is pronounced “fo vee”.(Fau Vee)

It is jus that dem damn furriners don’t no how to speak henglish proper,
like us do.

Gutem fahrt….Marum. (Die verrücht Katze)
