Funny Signs 2 - No Exploding Cars!

Some signs don't need bad translations to be funny!

 

Weird sign telling people not to shoot flames out of car?

 

 

 

Li Qun Duck Restaurant sign.

Editors Note: You wouldn't know it, even when you're standing right in front of it, but this is the sign for one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. We had the greatest meal of our trip there.

Speaking Chinese w/ Kiweenie Lao Shi

Kiweenie Chinese Title

Lesson 1

Ni hao class! It's me Kiweenie Lao Shi (teacher Kiweenie). Since we've been in China I've been really interested in the Chinese language. I've even begun picking up a few words and phrases. Because you’re traveling through China with us I thought it would be important for you to learn a few words of Chinese too. Don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you because the Chinese language is very difficult!

Funny Signs 1 - The Laugh & Frolic


A
s soon as we got to China, Moo-Cow began noticing that some of the signs that have been translated into English have been done so in a really funny way, and some are just outright strange. Many seem like poor translations, while others seem very poetic. Moo-Cow has his camera on him at all times and will be snapping some pictures of the best signs he sees on the streets of Beijing and Shanghai. He thinks you’ll find them as funny as he does!

 

He's going to start with one of his favorites so far. These are some rules posted at the Great Wall in Mutianyu.

Easter Egg Battles 2008

Nails The Chicken's Egg

This is Nails' egg. No one touches Nails' egg.

For the past few years we've had a new Easter Day tradition. Ryan and I head on over to a friend's house (Beth & Michael W.) for a little dinner and some very competitive rounds of Egg Battles! That's not the official name but that's what happens. You pit your eggs (hardboiled and decorated of course) against other peoples eggs to see which one has the hardest shell.

My Run-in With E.B.

I thought I would do my Easter comic in a new way. This is the first comic I've done that also made a great sandwich!

MCFC Comics: Behind the Scenes

If you have read any of the Moo-Cow Fan Club Print Editions or visited our comics page then you are probably familiar with the comics I do about the MCFC gang. I thought I would share some of the process of how I create one of those comics. For an example I'll use the Toll Tale comic from the Pioneers edition.

Meet the Official MCFC Composer!


T
hose of you who have visited the MCFC Music Hall might already know the name of Christopher Staknys (the official MCFC composer). Well, Ryan and I finally had the pleasure of meeting Christopher, along with his mom Audrey, in person! Within minutes of meeting them, we watched Christopher give a perfect performance of two very difficult pieces on the piano and then we got to hear a string orchestra perform a piece he had written. It was amazing!

 

So how is an 11-year-old able to compose so many great pieces of music and play them so well? Well, he might be young in age, but he has an impressive resume. Here is part of the brief overview he gave us of his life in music so far.
