Gelatipulpo and other things that make me laugh

I know, I know. I haven't blogged in forever. Sometimes I just don't feel like it. So to make up for my absence, here's a whole post of stuff I found funny enough to take a picture of.

Pretty much this entire menu is funny. Who would order something containing "sea squirt"? Don't even get me started on the Echinoderms. 

This is a sign in Villarrica. It is supposed to say retorno which is a lane set up to make a u-turn. Anyway, some clever kid changed the t to a p. I like to imagine that every time he (obviously it was a boy) drives past this he laughs to himself ala Beavis and Butthead because it says porno.

Poorly translated signs will never not be funny. This one is in a grocery store in Púcon. 

 Grampas for sale! Only $1890! That's a pretty sweet deal. For only 4 bucks you can get your very own grampa.

Every day I have to drive past this horrible sign. "Camping"? 
It "kills" me every time I see this horrible apostrophe catastrophe. 

Update: While driving to work this morning I realized that the sign is incorrectly using quotation marks, not apostrophes. I would have just changed it, but I so enjoyed "apostrophe catastrophe". Every time I say it in my head I use a made up accent so the two words rhyme. And it makes me laugh. So I'm leaving it here. 

It may be hard to read, but this imported garlic (that we bought without realizing it was imported) has the slogan "Fresh, we always".

Yum! Placenta conditioner!

If the popsicle isn't calamari flavored, why did they name it after an octopus?? 
And why does it only have 6 legs?
He looks pissed.

Okay this one is from a train station in Antwerp, Belgium. 
Every time I see this picture it makes me laugh. 

Probably the best?

  1. They eat hedgehogs in Villarica?! Think I can skip the sea squirt and the placenta. Ick! Oh, and the Gelatipulpo. What the heck is that? I could have used a couple of grampas. Mine passed away before I was born. Subse? I'm clueless here.
