Somehow this isn't what I think of when the phrase "World Trade" is used.

I realised how bizarre my job is yesterday when I did a final read-through of an email I wrote to one of our Chinese manufacturers, discussing voice recording for a swearing garden gnome. Here are some excerpts:



Phrase #9 - You offered us two options. We prefer the first one using "cock", not "dick".

Phrase #16 - Please change wording to "Fuck ME! Even I think you're ugly... and I'm a fucking garden gnome!"
-tania deals with a contractor.

Context doesn't think the homeowner's association would approve of these things.
