Free Drinks for Ladies with Nuts
Jane O'Boyle
This hilarious book takes the reader on a grand tour of mangled English, Freudian slips, and other malapropisms in a compendium of authentic signs, phrases, headlines, labels, menus, and ads from around the world and here at home."The flattening of underwear with pleasure is the job of the chambermaid".

(at a Serbian hotel)

"Fur coats made for ladies from their own skins".

(at a Swedish furrier)

"The manager has personally passed all water served here".

(at an Acapulco hotel)

"Teeth extracted by the latest Methodists".

(an ad for a dentist in Hong Kong)

Organized by the type of faux pas -- Signs and Ads, Menu Items, Helpful Instructions, Brand Names to Remember, and Free Advice -- Free Drinks for Ladies with Nuts is the perfect gift for world travelers and language lovers everywhere.
