I've seen many odd "English" names in Hong Kong - including Puffer
- but this is a new one on me. Given that most people adopt an English label while at school, it doesn't say much for the standard of English teaching here that no one tells the students when a name they choose is too weird to use. Given this, it's perhaps not surprising that the SCM Post reports
on this sign in Victoria Park:
However, I rather like the comment from one person interviewed by the Post
that the mistake doesn't matter much because "few people pay attention to the warning signs anyway". Now there's the true Hong Kong spirit!.
Funny how the SCuMP never draws attention to its own gaffes, such as their "Obama Bin Laden Dead" headline.
Would't want that lot writing park signs, that's for sure.
Quite why you can't feed your girlfriend in the park is beyond me. Meddlers!
