I thought this was HILLARIOUS when I read it for the first time.  A friend on Facebook sent me some “Korean food” via the Facebook app.  I look at all the options for food:

Korean Food Options

If you look closely at the last option, it says “Sundae.”

Soondae

OK, this is where I LOVE THE PHONETIC translations of Korean into English.  We know what a sundae is.  It looks like this:

ice cream sundae

What “Soondae” (instead of “Sundae”) looks like really is this:

Soondae - blood sausage

Soondae - blood sausage

I just chuckled to myself.  Honestly, they should of spelled it “Soondae” instead of “Sundae”, but then again, I can’t blame them 100%.  The #1 result for “Sundae” in Google is a Wikipedia.org article which helps drive popular opinion one direction and they spell it “Sundae.”

I guess all those people who want to drip chocolate syrup and add a cherry on top of this can go right ahead…

I love Korea in a lot of ways, but I’m sorry, this isn’t one of my favorites.
