    Hmm.. I spend a bit of time on particular IT forums answering genuine questions.

    The style of the wording above seems to correspond very closely to some of the questions in these forums.

    My standard answer to these is:

    Sense question make does your not - up ar*e it your stick!

      WTFBBQ?

      I think herein lies the explanation why most people have great trouble learning the Chinese language. Its not just the letters/words you have to learn, but how to think in a very very different manner.

        By the syntax (or lack of) Id say someone has been using google translator to translate for brochures. . .

          I think that has to win an award for the most words used in a sentence / paragraph ??? which makes absolutely no sense what so ever......

          I dont think I could string so many words together so poorly even if I tried (and English wasnt one of my strong subjects by any means) .

          I havent seen any other "Chinglish" constructed THAT badly :.

                      Reminds me of when sitting in a class at uni and having to work in groups. The lectureer gave strict instructions to simplify our answers and not use Jargon.

                      The younger people in the group gave a jargonistic long worded answer with smug looks on their facesand were immendiately failed.

                      Us oldies got HDs for the lesson based on our easy to follow simplified answer.
