Hydraulic oil for massage? No thanks.

Ha! Following my last post on the Chinglish Key Pouch below, Elyn sent me this even funnier version. This is supposedly to be the men's version?
Read wife's book
Listen to wife
Be wife's warrior
Now, thats some sound advice any Shanghai men would give. Right?
A friend of mine actually have this key pouch :D
Some well known non China brands actually sound as if they originated from China. In fact, they do strike a cord with the market audience when translated.
Heres a few I can think of with the loose translation:
Mercedes Benz - 奔驰 Ben Chi (Speed ahead)
BMW - 保马 Bao Ma（Precious horse)
Carrefour -家乐福 Jia Le Fu (Happy and fortunate house)
Coca Cola -可口可乐 Ke Kou Ke Le (Tasty and Happy)
Ikea -宜家 (Ideal home)
Tesco -乐购 (Happy buying)
Samsung -三星 (Three stars)
