Happy Valentine’s Day with some Kinky Chocolate

Sicilians are a romantic lot and they love St. Valentine’s Day. Rather than give their girlfriend sweets or champagne, most Sicilian men are more likely to take her out for a delicious organic Italian ice-cream.

What better way to wish all my readers Happy Valentine’s Day than by sharing this marvellous advertisement I saw in our local ice-cream parlour?

Funny Sicilian sign

Yeah, forget about whipped cream. Sicilians do it with really old chocolate. On their back sides.

  1. LOL!
    I’m constantly baffled by how this kind of thing still happens all the time in an age where most people have access to the internet and to forums like Wordreference.com, where native (English or whatever) speakers will be more than happy to correct stuff for free.

    1. You should see some of the astonishing things people in Sicily walk around with, written on their chests and backsides! One of my favourites so far was “kangaroo seducer” stretched around a middle aged man’s paunch.

    or perhaps you know of someone who would be willing to proof read their signs in exchange for some ice-cream?!

  5. These translations are always funny. When we traveled in China it was even worse — their signs made no sense whatsoever. Please hold your childrens’ hands became (literally) When with old show grace up.

    Hugs! and Happy Valentines Day.

    There’s a copywriter right here looking for a job! 🙂 But where would we get our laughs if everything was perfect 😉

    You know, many people think hiring a professional translator is not necessary, their niece who’s studying English at the high school is surely able to do the job 🙂

  9. I never cease to be amazed by the shortcuts people take for their advertising. Getting the English checked wouldn’t have cost them much, whereas advertising like that will cost them a mint in terms of lost clients and ridicule… sigh.
