Language Problems or Don't drink 15 cans of beer before getting a tattoo

I just received this in an email from a friend and thought it was worth passing on. You can imagine the conversation -

"Ordering a cake by phone in Springvale, a southeastern suburb of Melbourne with a high proportion of Asian residents.

Cake-shop employee answers phone: "Harro, dis Springvale cake-shop, how can I helping you?"

Customer: "I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week."

Cake-shop employee: "What you be want writing on cake?"

Customer: "...'Best Wishes Suzanne'....underneath that...'We will miss you.' "

This reminded me of Neville who on a visit to Thailand last year after his beloved Geelong Cats won the Australian Football League premiership, fortified himself with 15 cans of beer and visited a tattoo shop for a celebratory bit of artwork on his arm. Thinking he was helping out the artist he wrote down what he wanted on a piece of paper and in order to balance it up decided he would have one on both his right and left arms. So that the bloke got it on the correct side he labelled each of the drawings with "right arm" and "left arm". Here is the result.

Note that instead of "Day Premiers" it actually says "Gay Premiers" which all non Geelong supporters will tell you is most appropriate. You can read more about it here.

Oh dear....I shouldn't laugh but God that was funny. That tattoo didn't look like it was done very well to my inexperienced eye anyway. It looks like it would peel off.

Hopefully Suzanne saw the humour with the cake. I would have burst out laughing but then my sense of humour is legendary for being warped.

That's a strong argument for not allowing anyone to get tattooed while under the influence!

I would have laughed too folks.

At least the cake could be eaten - those tatoos, bad, bad, bad.
