Discussion[edit]

Even pandas have to take a pee.


On the wall of a dead-end alley:

路不通行不得在此小便


The word for word translation:

road not through walk not possible at here pee


The original had no punctuation. Here are 2 ways the panda could read this.

1. Not a through road, don't pee here.

2. A dead end road, no through traffic, pee here.


Well, as a student of classical Chinese, I'd definitely have to go with the first translation. This is just instinct, of course, based on context. But you gotta love the lack of punctuation!The-dissonance-reports 19:04, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Why I linked this to The Write Stuff[edit]

By putting in the link the The Write Stuff, I hope that I can prevent any one from accusing the article on the radio series of being an orphan. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 21:43, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
