I have a feeling that it was a lot more business than funny.

Pondering fatherhood

Filed under: Observation — Chad Damon Stewart @ 3:01 am

This is the strange result of a serendipitous confluence of children’s dental hygiene products and would have never hung in my home if I weren’t a father.

Finding interesting objects in my in-laws’ house

I was extremely happy to discover that what I thought was just a simple thermometer to measure the temperature of my son’s bath actually measures temperament.

Shopping and going to restaurants

Filed under: Observation — Chad Damon Stewart @ 8:53 am

One of the more amusing aspects of my daily life in Lithuania is reading the English on products and menus. I am certainly not denigrating Lithuania or Lithuanians for especially improper use of English; these sorts of confusing phrases can be found all over the world where English is used as a second language. And, after all, not a particularly large percentage of US citizens can even begin to use a second language. However, when I read Lithuanian potato sausages called “intestines with potatoes” or potato dumplings called “zeppelins”, I find it funny. “Beef in own juice” is just one of those product names that make me laugh. I haven’t tried it yet.

Advertising for a Chinese restaurant in Vilnius, Lithuania

Living in Lithuania, though it has already been a total of nearly ten years, I am forced to face many unfamiliar and, often, disturbing cultural differences. In fact, this particular ad, which I think would be impossible to find anywhere in the United States and which I photographed just over one year ago, really sets the tone for this blog, and, in fact, was partially what inspired me to create it. This Chinese restaurant is actually a relatively new one in a popular Lithuanian chain that mainly sells pizza.
