Stupid driver can't do an u-turn and blocks the traffic in Naples for a while.

About today banner (Loarre castle, which is about 30 km Northwest of my hometown), I have visited it a ton of times, not less than twice a year when I was a kid. The main reason is simple: One of my grandmothers is from the town located below it, so I went there on a regular basis. But now I haven't been there since October last year, so maybe it's time for another visit.

Very trollish, and Italian was almost completely wrong (and Spanish too), but still funny

Geschlechtverkehr is super silly if you translate it technically "Generation traffic"

I can't agree that, because Mexican and Spanish are the same language as British English and American English are English.

Even more funny, the difference to say Concha in Spain (A women name and a shell) and what the hell means concha in Argentina… guess what…

Right now I am browsing the internet, but I am still unsuccessful to find the similar photo.

The photo has been made in tavern focusing on daily menu offer. In Slovak language there has been written "Mušličková polievka", what literally means "Soup with shell(-shaped pasta)". The English translation below stated "Pussy soup"

We also call that you-know-what-I-mean "pussy" as "shell" due to visual similarity. A small translation error.


Edit: I have finally found it It is in Czech language, but the nature is the same.

We call football nogomet, which means "foot-throw".

In Italian is calcio, that is also completely different from football.

This is a funny translation in a Chinese hospital

Istead of the scientific term "******", they wrote a ruder slang.
