46 of 365


We got a couple of extra microphones for our Wii Rock Band games, and the translated instructions on the back were hilarious! My favourite line would have to be:
'Attention Matter. Microphone don't to near the television in the using time, or the microphone will bring self-excitation.'
???!!!

And to eat, I had a chocolate. Just one. I am SO impressed with myself!


It had a chocolate truffle filling :-)

Self-excitation......now that brings some unprintable pictures to mind!!!!!
Only one chocolate....were you feeling ill that day???

Just one chocolate. One? ONLY ONE? What were you thinking?!!!
You had obviously been self-exciting in other ways!!!

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

Self-excitation? That sounds a bit rude, like they think you might be using it for things other than singing

Rhona said...

Just one????? Well done!
Love the instructions, hope you followed them word by word ;o) (if that were possible!) lol!!

Rhona said...

Thanks for your comment. My machine does look fairly fancy but I still normally just use the basic stitches. I bought it when I was doing a patchwork and quilting class and had great plans. They didn't materialise and my quilts have stayed very simple. I think you should try one. If you need any help let me know :)

Seriously, with the cash companies are making on these games, you would think they could pay someone to do a proper translation. Thank goodness it wasn't assembly instructions! ;-) And kudos on the single chocolate. If you don't want to eat the rest, you can send them my way...

Get thee behind me....!!!! Day 6 & counting for me being chocolate free...so this has just got me salivating but NO...I WILL NOT weaken!!! Great instructions...just think, someone actually got paid for that translation...what does an 'excited' microphone do?!!

Just one, well done you,and I love those pics of the Alice In WOnderland jewellery.

I like "attention matter" as a heading - much more foreceful than "please note"

Deb said...

LOL - fun translation!

Yummy looking chocolate!!!

Amy said...

Good old translations! Great job on the self control by the way!

Lizzie said...

Hee hee hee!! Love the translation. Great!

One chocolate is very restrained. You know, if you smell the choccy first, then eat it slowly, it makes you quite happy with just one. Something to do with how smell and taste work. Anyway, one really nice choccy is always good.. better than lots of cheapy, crummy ones!

Well done on the one chocolate - I just don't have the self restraint!
