I bought this book just before running to catch my plane a few years ago with my brother. It was a short trip from California to Oregon. I have never been so buried in a book! I completely forgot where I was or that my uncontrollable snorting laughter would disturb others around me who must have considered locking me in the bathroom at some point in the flight.
If you find Manglish funny, you will love this book...just maybe don't read it in public? :)
This is a collection of short little mistranslations. While they are slightly amusing, they didn't feel laugh out loud to me. I made it to page 32 and decided to throw in the towel.
'storaberry crap'
'beef rashers beaten up in the country people's fashion'
'if he still does not heave of foot, tootle him melodiously'

this book is fucking hilarious.

Too bad they used the best one for the title. The menu items were pretty hilarious, too, however.
