Maybe your just crap at mandarin? Option?Nick JD said:How many of you guys can speak Mandarin, let alone read a single Chinese character?
I spent a year trying to get Taiwanese people to understand my Mandarin. Not one of them could understand me until the 5th try, and none of them thought it was funny that I was saying purple monkey dishwasher barbeque when I wanted fried rice with wontons or directions to a street.
The stereotype of Asians being crap at English is almost as strong as the stereotype of Australians being racist bogans.

Mother brother horse scold huh? Looks like plain old "ma", isn't.
Engrish is the Chinese getting it almost correct. I've met about 3 people ever who learnt passable Chinese as an adult.
That is just plainly stating that it is framable, and perhaps the glass on the frame could break if mishandled (once framed).jyo said:

Diesel is less flammable than petrol but it is wrong to suggest that it is inflammable (or "not flammable").
I hope this knowledge has made the image even funnier still.
While I despise the word, the one you were reaching for was the seemingly redundant "non-inflammable".Flammable and inflammable both mean capable of burning. The word "inflammable" came from Latin inflammāre = "to set fire to," where the prefix "in-" means "in" as in "indoctrinate", rather than "not" as in "invisible" and "ineligible".
