Bad Fortune

The last place I would expect to see Chinese errors would be inside the fortune cookies. 云吞食品公司 (Wonton Food Inc.) has found a way to make my nightmare come true.

Both Erik of Mandarin Tools and I had fortune notes with incorrect Chinese. I don’t care about the lucky numbers, nor the cheap Yoda-like Engrish pep-talks printed on the note, but I do care about the other side – Learn Chinese.


Mine (shown above) was not as entertaining as what Erik got:

The Chinese pinyin is correct for “pot sticker”, but the printed Chinese 罐屠夫 is something completely different. is a type of ceramic container, similar to a jar. 屠夫 is butcher.

Shame on you, Wonton Food Inc. of Brooklyn, NY 11206!
