Lost in Translation: Hong Kong Edition

 What I think is always funny when we go to a new city- we see signs and things that pop out and giggle because typically it's something that maybe doesn't translate into Western culture.
Fook! :) I know that Ben Stiller did the whole Meet the Fockers series but now I am contemplating if it should really be Meet the Fookers.
 Hmmm.. Words can not describe looking at this photo makes me laugh even now.  If you don't know what a "golden shower" is- google it! You must be 18 or older to view some of the links.
When I was a kid I used to get really excited for McDonald's.  I think maybe it was a combination of the clown Ronald or maybe the Hamburgler and the awesome toy you get in your own little box (or I like call them a kids purse). I don't eat most American fast food now but when I was a kid McDonalds was almost as good as Disneyland. I am still ever fascinated at McDonald's in different languages and in a different country.  They also do Happy Hour at McDonalds and Starbucks in Hong Kong.   Also if you need to use the little girls room and your in a pinch- McDonald's always has free bathroom.
I never knew trolls made beads.
It's a sports drink not realy sweat, but I did have to look it up.
I am not sure how I feel about this one.. I am still adjusting to that fancy wines going to screw tops, but now this? What's next, beer in a caprisun bag?
I saved the best for last! Even though it's not in English- I never knew an exploding volcano and people running away in fear could make me laugh so hard.
