Very funny, Tony! Thanks for posting this.
But at least they're giving it a good shot, trying to get it right.
Writing Japanese, Chinese, or Korean "characters/letters".....we would have NO CLUE!
I'm in the middle of watching 2 Korean "soap operas" on my TV.
("The Famous Chill Sisters" and "Pure in Heart.")
Luckily, it has English sub-titles.
But sometimes even the professional translators get it wrong,
and you have to re-read the sentence to make sense out of it.
But I occasionally watch 2 Japanese stories, unfortunately
without English sub-titles, and try to figure the story out.
Maybe you know them, or watch them?
* One has an orchestra that plays classical music,
but the musicians are young people in their teens and 20s.
* The second one has a lot of people living in an enormous "palace"
and it's pretty much a fashion show, when the lady of the house
walks around the garden hallways, and EVERYBODY is wearing
unbelievably beautiful kimonos.
Yep, we all live on a very small planet.........
