Anyone living here for any amount of time knows that Romania is a comedy of errors, where even the most routine things get cocked up (as British people say).
A case in point is a screencap I took of the welcome message of the official website of the Romanian embassy in Britain:
Seriously, you’d think someone, somewhere would notify the Right Honorable “Doctor” Ion Jinga, that not only does his English fucking suck a donkey’s dick but even the text on the official website is shoddily written.
As a courtesy, I’ve gone ahead and fixed the text just in case anyone cares:
As the Ambassador of Romania
into the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to the Embassy of Romania in London websitewebsite of the Romanian Embassy in London.
With a new look, inaugurated on the 1st of December 2011, Romania’s National DayRemodeled with an updated look on December 1, 2011, on the occasion of Romania’s National Day, the Embassy’s web pagesite is addressed to those(those what? LFMAO) designed to inform visitors who would like to find out more (more what?) information about our diplomatic activity and the services we provide.
Dedicated to the
Romanian-Britishwarm relationship between Great Britain and Romania, the Web pagethis website contains information about Romania, trade relations (with what? LOL), labour legislation and social security in the United Kingdom (???) as well as contact details of the mainfor Romanian organisations.
Thank you for the interest you have
takenshown/expressed in the Romanian Embassy in London and for visiting us.
I wish you a pleasant reading!
Dr. Ion “Two Sheeps” Jinga
Ambassador of Romania to the United Kingdom
I have absolutely no idea if the passage about “labour legislation and social security” is really about those things in Great Britain (in general), because that would make zero sense to a British visitor, or if it’s about how those things would affect a Romanian citizen in Britain, in which case it’s not very clear and fairly unnecessary to write about in English. It’s confusing the hell out of me, that’s for sure.
But hey, I’m just pedantic, right? It’s not like there’s a political party in Britain which just won massively in the local elections that is actively anti-Romania or anything. So what does it matter if Romania has a two-bit ambassador who can’t speak the language or the Romanian Embassy has incorrect English on its official website?
Go back to eating those horse burgers, kids!
