Zombie Preparedness Lunch

Posted by admin on March 2nd, 2011 filed in Linguistics

Our bilingual cafeteria menu says today:

“Zapečený květák
připravený jako mozeček
s vejci, vařený brambor”

Which is translated as:

“Baked cauliflower
with eggs, boiled potatoes”

Seems the Czechs neglected to translate the second line — the one that says

“prepared like BRAIN”

Ensuing dialog:
A: “So, they make the cauliflower look like a brain?”
B: “No, they use the same recipe as for brain.”
A: “…”
B: “Last time I had brains it was with eggs.”
A: “o_o”
