Sometimes, when it’s your job to purchase prizes to stock the prize redemption room at the upcoming school carnival, you think IT WOULD BE COOL TO HAVE STUFF KIDS ACTUALLY WANT.
Sometimes, because the stuff kids want is expensive, you look online for cheaper alternatives, like buying in bulk or FROM CHINA.
Sometimes you spend lots of time searching these Chinese stores, using words like ZOMBIE and MUSTACHE and ONE DIRECTION and ANGRY BIRDS and JUSTIN BIEBER and MINECRAFT and CUPCAKES and HELLO KITTY and SPIDER MAN. Too much time, really.
Sometimes, in these Chinese stores, you find exactly what you know the kids would go nuts over, because CHINESE PEOPLE TOTALLY GET US SIMPLE AND SOMETIMES STUPID AMERICANS. You place lots of orders, and three weeks later find out that each order is being shipped separately and must be signed for, which does not irritate your mail lady even a little or make her want to throw your mail in the trash.
And sometimes, CHINESE PEOPLE SPELL STUFF DIFFERENTLY.
Sometimes they spell it WRONG.
Sometimes YOU GET MAIL THAT, LITERALLY, MAKES YOU LOL. Like this:
Oh, how I love translation funnies.
