Veggies for cats and dogs

« previous post | next post »

This video was passed on by Tim Leonard, who remarks, "real-time video translation at its best":

The Japanese in the background reads:

inu / neko no taberu nama yasai 犬・猫の食べる生野菜 ("raw vegetables / greens for dogs and cats to eat")

*nama 生 ("raw) >  shinsen 新鮮 ("fresh")

You can see for yourself what the English translation is.

    The banner at the top – "prevent gastrointestinal disorders by hell good" – is almost as extraordinary as the main attraction.

    From Nathan Hopson:

    The description above is out of focus and cut off, but it looks like the bottom line is:


    (I ni tamatta kedama o hakidasaseru kōka ga arimasu)

    "Causes [pets] to vomit up hairballs"

    Or more literally:

    "Has the effect of causing [dogs and cats] to vomit up hairballs built up in their stomachs."

    I can't make out any more than that, and neither can this Reddit thread…

    Should we be concerned that Reddit forces me to swear that I am 18 and ready for NSFW content before viewing it … while LL makes no such warnings? :) :)

    I've been shopping at the wrong supermarket all this time!

    I can't really make head or tail of what this video is about!

    It's a mobile, camera-enabled version of Google Translate. Just installed an iOS version on an iPad and tried it with some Chinese and Japanese texts. It performs just like I expected a mobile camera-enabled version of Google Translate to perform (i.e. see the video above). At least the price was right.

    Here are more details on the app:
