I Saw the Signs: CRP

Israel_2006_00037 The problem with Hebrew is that unless you’re going to use vowels (and believe me, most Israelis and their businesses don’t), you end up mistranslating this sign, which advertises Henri’s Creperie, as a business that sells “French Crap.” Or “French Carp.” In any case, I’m not buying.

    The sad thing is that, in Israel, that store may actually sell carp… and besides that, I’m sure that whatever they sell is, indeed, crap.
