Saudi Arabia's take on Disturbia

OMG, that is nightmarish. BTW, there's a Luke Cage: Hero For Hire comic where white people are building these large scale walled towns in the desert where they can recreate their 1950's suburban fantasies...without any black people in them.

Let me venture some guesses: the Chinese person attempting that translation knew that a "common" term for fried or baked potatoes in English is "tater tots" and also knew that there are many odd food names like "pigs in a blanket" which does not literally involve pigs nor blankets and which would not translate BACK into Chinese making any sense ("Funny English speakers call sliced potatoes 'tots'"), and that one way to add salt to some foods is called pickling in English.

MAYBE "silk" was just supposed to be "salt".

Now see, that's the future I've dreamt about. That's some world changing shot right there. And it will become cheap too.

It should be noted that depending upon the precise model of that model T, it might be only twice as old as that Saturn V.
