Actshually:
Quote
The[lSwedish Bikini Team was a group of American female models who appeared in an advertising campaign for Old Milwaukee beer. These commercials ran for several months in 1991 in the United States, playing with American stereotypes of Scandinavian women being blonde and having big breasts. The premise of the commercials was that a group of bored or thirsty men were "saved" by the Swedish Bikini Team. Other commercials would focus on a group of men male bonding on a hunting trip and saying "Guys, it does not get any better than this", to which a narrator would say the man was wrong and an Old Milwaukee truck would drive miles off road towards them claiming "it improved", "..and when the Swedish Bikini Team showed up, it got somewhat better."[1]

While many viewers saw the ads as a parody of traditional beer advertisements, some feminists found the ads misogynistic.[citation needed] Though the campaign generated widespread interest, the advertisements were dropped after protests by the National Organization for Women and female employees of the Pabst Brewing Company.[2]/quote]

My biggest problem reading these is that most of the time I have no idea who the flags are.  why so serious?

This Polandball is based on real events. The Misused English words and expressions in EU publications guide has further examples.


It makes for a fun read - if you are into language - as you can really tell the author just about had it with the English language being butchered:

Reading that along with those definitions under the influence of too many poolside Mai-Tais is a weird combination of WTF and time-cubish almost-makes-sense.  In an effort not to accidentally invoke the Great Old Ones, I will wait until vacation is over to re-read them...

The English used in EU legal text is hilarious, it's like some sort of bizarre dialect. Obviously not so funny when there are legal issues, or when our continental European friends keep trying to translate or correct documents drafted by native speakers.

Well. sobering up certainly did not help my understanding of the earlier Euro-english translations. 

Perhaps next time I should go the opposite direction and try black-out levels of intoxication?
