Hairy Tale from Shanghai

Uncle Siam is rather tickled by this reminder pasted over every check-in counter in Shanghai's airport.

By Uncle Siam

It's only to be expected since it's hairy crab season.

It's kind of the Shanghai equivalent of the Malaysian "No durian on board" warning.

But it's hilarious. The English is a bit off. Obviously, they mean no hand-carried crabs allowed on board, rather than "no hand carry crabs".

But then again, if you look closely, they have decided not to draw the crab claws as "hands". So, these crabs really have only arms and no hands!!

The artist must have had a better command of English, and had taken the English instructions literally!! Haha
