Hello,

I was checking worth1000.com and they have a contest on that.

Here is the link that caught my attention:
http://www.worth1000.com/cache/contest/contestcache.asp?contest_id=10126&start=1&end=10&display=photoshop

Maybe we, as translators, should send a couple of pictures tooicon_smile.gif.

Best,

Mar

...Katherine, this is hilarious!

Everyone, check out the "Can I take your order" part.

My favorite on the menu so far is "Wood flower picks sea cucumber hoof". Yummy!
