Thoughts and observations about language

Direct Import from Poland

I was driving down the street yesterday, heading to the west end of the valley, and on the side of the street there was a scrolling marquee. I wasn't really watching what it said, but then a strange ad caught my eye, for "Polish Wax". It took me a couple moments of wondering what sort of food that was, thinking along the lines of a Polish sausage, before I noticed that the sign was for a car wash facilility, and was talking about polishing the car as part of the service.

Such trickery from the English language.
