Now we know what Romania thinks of us! And what the heck is "ulei" anyway? I would keep that can up on the shelf for a souvenir. No way would I eat anything from Romania.
Does America Import a lot of crap? lol
Ulei= oil, first thought was urine lol
We have just returned from a trip to Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei. Many menus that featured fish had "crap" and "carb". It seems "b's" and "p's" are a tough translation. We still enjoyed carp and crab while there. Where was that can packed?
Oh, goodness MountainMan, we manufacture our own fair share of it. Ha!
In Japan they have a drink called "Calpiss," and every time I heard it I thought for sure I was being offered bovine urine. Some things just don't translate well, eh?
Thanks for the laugh, Don, and so sorry to hear about your sweet vole hunter.
Here's a little something that's popular in the Caribbean, apparently.
Tastes like chicken!
I guess Romanians don't know how to spell! Lol! I figured out right away ulei is oil,but I am ethnic in origin,being Italian. Good laughs! Phil
Ulei is castor oil for those that don't know ... so funny Don!
oh my.. what did i start ... lol
Ken, I've always thought that you cleverly used that word and you know exactly what you started... should have patented it when you had the chance. ;-) What was the other one - "horse poo", "bull poo"?
Don, where did you find that can? I have a few friends that I should sent coal to for Christmas. That product would do even better. )
Monet, I did a Google image search and found that pic. I do not own that can of...carp.
i dont think i used horse pucky here ... thats way old ...
apparently i am challenged at the moment.. it will come to me.. right after i forget which post this is ...
Thanks, Don. I think I'll go snooping the ethic grocery stores. That one's a keeper.
Ken, now wait ...
you're not saying ...
you're speechless ....
Be still my heart.
IF anyone finds a source, PLEASE post it. I would love to get a can of that stuff.
BABKA: Here it is before they can it:
LOL Esther, that looks like a Denver fish market!
YES! It was "ape poop"!
Priceless! Too bad our local Asian market closed. That would make a great gag gift.
Thanks for the best laugh I've had in weeks!
I know they sell the elephant poo, says it keeps away tigers.
Great fertilizer so I'm told.
Esther - please study and try to understand the nuances of the word "tolerance".
My Mom-in-Law is Romanian and I'll eat her cooking in a heartbeat.
hhZone4, my new clarified moniker!
Esther- Oooooooo. Fresh is always best! ;-)
Try it .. you may like it! I dare yu
HHZONE4: I do not like the flavor of carp. If it is mixed with whitefish and pike, it is OK in gefilte fish, but I don't like the flavor of it by itself.
Your mother-in-law is no doubt a great cook, but that's HOMEMADE cooking. Nothing wrong with that! It's the commercially prepared stuff like canned fish that I question, as I do not know how sanitary or strict the Romanian "USDA": standards are. That's what I was referring to.
Moc this is how they bag the elephant poo not touched or baged by machines... stricktly organic too
I missed seeing this picture above.
Now THAT is FERTILIZER.
And you thought YOU had a sucky job. :D
Well, at least it appears she is enjoying it. Just look at that smile on her face!
Lucky for her that that elephant did not have gas.
As Frank Barrone would say "Holy Crap".
one lump, or two ...
I bet that's STILL better than cooked carrots!!!!
Rosie, I thought he said "Holy carp!"
I was once married to a Romanian. I used to pick on him about the word crap. But then, our word "foot" (with some spelling differences) is pronounced almost the exact way as their word for the F bomb.
