Something was lost in the translation...

Bill has a plastic figurine with hilarious "instructions" on it. I just had to share:

  • This product is for over the age of 15.

  • This product has some parts of sharp points due to expressing the reality.

  • Warning: Choking Hazard - This product contains small parts.
  • This the box itself.

  • Please use super glue when you repair the broken parts.

  • This product contains some very fragile parts. So please make sure that we can not replace if there is a damage as small as being fixed easily by yourself.

  • This products is made of special material which is easy to be bent by heat with hairdrier. If you find any places deformed, please use a hairdrier to fix it as the original form.

  • This product contains some fragile parts stored in the box separately with the main body. Please put them on the right places as shown on the sample photo.

  • Please make sure that the photo on the package is a trial model, so it must be a little different fromthe actual product in the box.

The funniest thing about the second-to-last instruction is that there aren't any separate parts. But my favorite line is "This the box itself". Not sure what it's supposed to mean - perhaps the box is communicating that it's self-aware?

Self aware perhaps, but the box clearly isn't intelligent enough to have mastered English. As the movies have taught us, all aliens speak English, so it's clearly sub-intelligent.
