Confusion, Confusion!

July 16, 2011 Blog 6 Comments

A few days ago there was a tweet from @Gilaband which mentioned that lots of Bahasa people Liked their Facebook Page because “Gila” means Crazy in Bahasa. They find it quite peculiar as Gila is a place in New Mexico, USA. (Ref: @Gilaband -twitter)

Another Language blunder, should I say?, has been made by Dell with its new Tablet called ‘Peju’ which is a slang for ‘sperm’ in Indonesia! They’re going to have quite a time marketing in Indonesia, I suppose.

Lastly let’s also be careful where we say “Susu” since it means “Milk” in Indonesia, “Breast” in Philippines and “Pee” in India!
