Italy Tomato With Stick


One of my new favourite places to buy groceries is at Fu Yao Supermarket. They have a couple locations in the east end of Toronto, and not only are their prices really cheap, but I always get a laugh every time I’m there. Inevitably, I always find at least one sign that has been "lost in translation"…

Not on the vine, nope, with the stick! LOL

If you really think of it though, when you buy premium tomatoes on the vine, you’re really just paying extra for a "stick"…

But all joking aside, this isn’t just at Fu Yao – I see signs like this all across Toronto. Apart from getting a quick laugh from it now and then, I actually find it very interesting to observe how everyday life is interpreted differently by various ethnicities… it’s great to live in such a diverse city full of culture!
