Lost in Translation

Naughty instrument at dollar store


Something was clearly lost in translation on the packaging of this dollar store toy aptly named: “Naughty Real Music”. Is real music more naughty than fake music? Hmm. Also confusing was the spunky rabbit on the front telling me about the naughty real instrument. “Guitar plays real music,” he said with great enthusiasm.

You can’t trick me rabbit. This is a saxamaphone! And let me tell you this, my neighbours were so thrilled with the naughty music that came out of my new instrument that they kept banging on the walls in appreciation.

    I love cheaptastic toys made overseas. They always have such fun packaging. Long after you throw away that saxaphone whistle thing (how long did it amuse you, 5 minutes?) you will have the memories of the naughty kangaroo guitar music.

    Granted, we could get very vulgar here in a “this one time at Band Camp” kind of way — but we’re all mature and stuff.

    Naughty Real Music : Because it’s just a very good idea to give this gift to a children of whom you donβ€˜t like his parents.

    I wouldn’t put your mouth on that unless of course you want lead poisoning.

    @Pasquale — sweet. i’m pretty ace on the saxophone because it uses the same fingering as the flute, and in case you didn’t know, i slay on the flute.

    @Christina — see ibid. i played the flute and went to band camp. so i very much doubt you could tell me a derivation of the “this one time at band camp” i have not heard. t00t.

    @Roland — dollar store where i found the squeaking fish.

    @Angelfire — thanks for the uber smiley smiley. :razz:

    @Denis — good thought. heading to the dollar store asap.

    @Nate — too late. *feeling lightheaded… uhhhhh… pass out*

    @Frank — totally.
