C A N A D A : Is that French??

These are all the funny French translations and/or ideas stolen in Montreal and Quebec City..
Found in some areas around the country as easy as 1.2.3 for smokers "ashtray" Genious..right.
Play on words Let's go (lait in French is milk, you got it right?)

Go figure where this came from
"Unemployed pudding" probably from France, they have 10 p. cent of the population unemployed
This is a very funny translation of a store which moved away

Play on words since this is a computer store "error 404. Don't panic...the store has crossed the street.."
This restaurant is selling pizzas, salads and "sous-marins" 'under the water'

Play on words for the ones who speak French

We liked this childish way of encouraging people to recycle newspapers

In Paris (France) the Conciergerie is a former royal palace and prison on the Île de la Cité, near the Cathedral of Notre-Dame. Marie Antoinette was guillotined there...In Canada, this is the information area in a hotel.

We visited APPLE ....

Do you remember when I visited Yahoo, Google, Symantec etc...3 years ago? Apple was on my list.

Well check

Well we enjoyed the food, the offices but could not take any pictures because who knows if we are stealing any ideas (right) and giving them to the competitors (sure by looking at the cafeteria...) Anyway,I enjoyed the makers of I-phone

I-pod, I-tunes with my I-husband.

Getting FREE Cellphones for San Francisco Policemen

I found a solution for the police force, to finally get cellphones and guess what...."The Examiner published my ideas: "Free cellphones for SFPD

I could not believe my eyes when reading that our police force does not have cellphones.

I think the only solution to this is to arrest the drivers using cellphones behind the wheel and just confiscate their phones. You will have the 1,800 cellphones needed for the SFPD in two hours time — and not a penny spent.

This is a good deal, right?
