It’s ice cream, but not as we know it!

I am not kidding you ‘Wanka’ ice cream is big in China especially where this picture was taken in Shanghai and although you probably won’t believe it the Chinese have no idea that what they have called their favourite ice cream is more than a little off putting to western tastes.

This really is an Ice Cream Shanghai

But then this lack of comprehension that their sought after ice cream is a source of mirth and usually prompts westerners to ask, when they see the sign above, if “anyone wants a …” and then collapse with laughter is no surprise really. The Chinese are a nation of strange people with a strange language who if you remember managed to take offence when Coca Cola started advertising their tooth rotting beverage in China all because “Coca Cola” translated phonetically means “bite the wax tadpole.” Yummy!

Words, like signs are powerful things in the wrong hands as this Cat knows tee hee, I am something of a master of feline literature as you know if you have read my PR, let alone my peerless books and since learning some English I have progressed to other bits of languages from around the world which I mainly picked up when researching my latest book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue.’

In fact I tended, because of the situations I found myself in, to learn only commands and more often than not swear words and can now fluently swear in dozens of languages, though until recently I hadn’t learned any Chinese swear words, happily I resolved that by learning the worst swear word in the Chinese language, would you like to know what it is? Of course you would! Well it’s “Democracy!”
