I just bought a new wireless mouse this morning because ours crapped out yesterday. I love the translations in these instructions, such as "Automatically sleeping and manpower taking off dual functions, the battery life be prolonged" and "The Steps of Install Battery: 1. Please prepare for two AAA chargeable batteries." Whew, I really had to prepare myself for those batteries. And I'm so glad to know that "there is no interference even many mice being used at the same time." But wait, uh oh, "You would better use the mouse on the white desk. In this way the batteries can be used for a long time." Curse my tan desk! Heh.

Heheh, that reminds me of this Amazon reviewer my husband found a while back while looking up Russian dictionaries. I think the review of the Zippo is the best of the two, though. :)

You have discovered instructions in the fabled language of Engrish! In my line of work , I get a lot of that, with many requests that I do the needful immediately.

My server is of air!
