Engrish Subtitles: Say Them Out Loud.

I stole this off another blog (hi, Sam!), so first off, I'd like to say thanks. These are actual English subtitles from movies made in Hong Kong, and this list is probably one of the funniest things I've read in a while. 

To get the full effect, please please PLEASE say each one out loud. If you're at your desk, just whisper them under your breath. It's okay, your office mates already think you're crazy; how much harm could you really do?  Prepare to die laughing.

1. I am damn unsatisfied to be killed in this way.

2. Fatty, you with your thick face have hurt my instep.

3. A normal person wouldn't steal pituitaries.

4. Take my advice, or I'll spank you without pants.

5. Who gave you the nerve to get killed here?

6. Quiet or I'll blow your throat up.

7. You always use violence. I should've ordered glutinous rice chicken.

8. I'll fire aimlessly if you don't come out!

9. I have been scared shitless too much lately.

10. I got knife scars more than the number of your leg's hair!

11. Beware! Your bones are going to be disconnected.

12. The bullets inside are very hot. Why do I feel so cold?

13. This will be of fine service for you, you bag of the scum. I am sure you will not mind that I remove your manhoods and leave them out on the dessert flour for your aunts to eat.

14. Yah-hah, evil spider woman! I have captured you by the short rabbits and can now deliver you violently to your gynecologist for a thorough extermination.

15. Greetings, large black person. Let us not forget to form a team up together and go into the country to inflict the pain of our karate feets on some ass of the giant lizard person.

Thanks for the laugh - it's the 4th straight day of rain here - that helped. "I am sure that you not mind if I remove your manhoods." Ha!

That was hillarious!!
"Quiet or I'll blow your throat up", this is something my high school Hindi teacher would say.
He once said "Open the windows and let the air force come in" Never realized that he was not the only person to say it. Apparently it is a very famous saying now
I'm still laughing.. :)

awesome! these are making me laugh all over again. how on earth do you capture someone by the "short rabbits?" they must have meant "hairs" but spelled it "hares" and then gone to thesaurus and been all, "hey, rabbits is a bigger word. let's use that one instead."

Hooray! I'm helping!

I steal things from other blogs so much (including this list which I think I stole from LotD) that it's about time someone stole from me. :)
