Mice and Groups? The value of good translation!

After staying 5 days in the Blau Punta Reina Resort on Mallorca (see review here), I wanted to figure out where Blau is based (it is the German word for "blue" after all). While perusing the homepage wasn't that successful, I did find this in their menu bar:

I suppose "Mice & Groups" is better than "Mice in Groups"…

Going by the phone number at the top, I presume the company is based in Spain somewhere - or perhaps even directly on Mallorca. Which goes to show the advantage of having a native speaker go through the translation of your worldwide web presence…

Whales from Wales...

I was in a pub on Friday night. Had a few....
I noticed two large women by the bar.

They both had strong accents so I asked,  "Hey, are
you two ladies from Scotland?"

One of them chirped:  "It's WALES you friggin' idiot!"

So, I immediately apologized and said...,  "Sorry, are
you two whales from Scotland ?"

That's when the lights went out....
