I donâ€™t know who took the picture, but my friend Stan Ferrin sent me a copy.
Didnâ€™t mean to shatter your expectations, but â€¦
â€¦ is this the return to a â€œgold standardâ€ we hear so much about?
Have you ever visited Uzbekistan? Me neither.
I may never go if I need to rely on the Uzbeki (is that a word?) national airline, whose billboard ad wishes us â€œGood Luckâ€ as an airliner disappears into a dense cloud with apparent snowy weather ahead.
Thanks to The International Business Edge for pointing out this fun example of a somewhat misguided effort at language translation.
By coincidence, I stumbled today across a second encouraging article about this fine country. The Kansas City FBI office reported today that â€œan Uzbekistan national pleaded guilty in federal court today to his role in a criminal enterprise involving illegal aliens working in 14 states, including employees at hotels in the Kansas City, Missouri area and in Branson, Missouri.â€
Maybe this fellow and his cohorts were so scared by the prospect of the flying Uzbekistan Airlines that they came to the United States and took up smuggling illegal aliens instead.
Way back in my teenage years, my Mother taught LDS early morning seminary class in Richfield, Idaho, for four years, which coincidentally were the same four years I attended. I donâ€™t remember many of the specific lessons, but I do remember the time she introduced the story of Noah and the Ark by playing Bill Cosbyâ€™s famous â€œNoahâ€ routine on a 33 1/3 LP record player.
Tonight, I watched a great give and take between Bill Cosby and George Lopez on the Lopez Tonight show. It reminded me of the classic Noah routine, which, due to the magic of YouTube, I share with you tonight.
Taking ideas out of context often gets us in trouble. Take the following snippet for example:
With this limited information, we might think we can get a free Soul car from Kia. That would be pretty cool!
However â€¦ thereâ€™s a catch. The upper phrase is a sponsored link on the Bing search page. It certainly talks about the Kia Soul car. But the bottom line is a link to the song I blogged about yesterday, which has absolutely nothing to do with cars or Kia!
