Lost in Translation... China What?

A few weeks ago I took a German friend of mine shopping to a factory outlet mall near Seattle. We needed a quick lunch break so we headed to local Panda Express.

We ordered and went to get our drinks. On the way to our table my friend was chuckling under her breath. When I asked what she was laughing at she explained.

The house brand iced tea is named "China Mist". In German, Mist is the word for shit. So the drink was called China Shit. We both had a good laugh.
