""""""""""Lost In Translation""""""""""
(Rent Rules "ETIQUETTE' in Islamabad/Pakistan)
Pakistani version of english sometimes make me laugh my pants off.
for example if i say in urdu.
admi road cross "KARRAHEE" tha.
then you'll exactly know what i am trying to say that "man was crossing the road", but you'll also detect that it doesn't sound right that it should have been like
admi road cross "KARRAHA" tha.
recently i read in DAWN newspaper, there was a picture and below it line was written like
'people protested the "ENHANCEMENT" of the tuition fees at government schools'
well if tuition fees are enhanced then what is there to protest about.........lol
recently another funny advertisement i saw at clifton road in karachi.
"BUILD YOUR OWN BURGERS"
even though this desi burger joint fellow is trying to say "hey come make your own burger" but every time i pass by clifton road word "BUILD" makes me laugh so hard.....
like i always say life without humor ain't worth living, peace man
