Lost in Translation, Animal edition

• Dafna: These [Kuramkare] are kind of like not-cheese Cheetos. Do you have those in America? You know, the little snacks with that tiger on them?

• You never really know what you’re going to get:


Nice. A superior good. It is a mink blanket. But is it really panda? When in doubt, my gut tells me to play the percentages.

• From a 2003 Nepali Textbook “Our Population and Environment”, in a short section about the Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve:

The main resident animals of this reserve are ‘Naur’, ‘Jharal’, ‘Thar’ and polar bears.

Please, I felt more informed when you were translating animal names like Artscroll.
