    I hope you can get the translation on this site. It's the yellow pages translated from french to english for the Maritimes. It turns out that translating from English to French then from From French back to English transforms some words into something completely different. Either that, or there is a new market for Fart Grooming that I was never aware of before..???:confused: :)

    I hope everyone gets as big a laugh out of this as I did...I almost fell off my seat laughing...translating in another language takes on a whole new meaning....how a company can be misrepresentated

    ROFL, a pet in French means fart. Reminds me of my son when he was only 3 years old. We only spoke to him in French when he was little and at 3 he had this little talking Arthur doll. The doll kept asking him "Do you have a pet?" to which my son would reply "Non, no pet" whilst shaking his head no. I couldn't help but laugh at the thought of him thinking the doll was asking him if he farted.

    That is HILARIOUS!!! Being in advertising in my past life, it was always funny to see how translations could get screwed up. Especially when reading directions to something (like a toy, etc.) that was translated from some kind of Chinese language to English. :p

    I'll remember never to put "pet" in any business name. haha

    We were trying to figure out how you would groom a fart. haha

    Thanks every one for getting a laugh out of this like I did.;)
