RE: Canned Carp

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.

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?

RE: Canned Carp

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.

RE: Canned Carp

Here's a little something that's popular in the Caribbean, apparently.

RE: Canned Carp

RE: Canned Carp

Ulei is castor oil for those that don't know ... so funny Don!

RE: Canned Carp

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. )

RE: Canned Carp

RE: Canned Carp

Priceless! Too bad our local Asian market closed. That would make a great gag gift.


 o
RE: Canned Carp

Thanks for the best laugh I've had in weeks!

RE: Canned Carp

I know they sell the elephant poo, says it keeps away tigers.
Great fertilizer so I'm told.

RE: Canned Carp

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.


Love,

RE: Canned Carp

Try it .. you may like it! I dare yu


 o
RE: Canned Carp

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.


 o
RE: Canned Carp

Moc this is how they bag the elephant poo not touched or baged by machines... stricktly organic too


 o
RE: Canned Carp

FAYE!

I missed seeing this picture above.

Now THAT is FERTILIZER.

RE: Canned Carp

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!


 o
RE: Canned Carp

Lucky for her that that elephant did not have gas.

RE: Canned Carp

As Frank Barrone would say "Holy Crap".

Rosie, I thought he said "Holy carp!"

RE: Canned 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.
