This product is the brittle goods

I recently got a new little tea maker (something along the lines of a small french press, but for tea). It was made in Taiwan, where they presumably don't have very good translators. Or perhaps they just ran the directions through Bablefish?

That last bullet point is almost like poetry. :)

It's almost like a haiku! But without the right number of syllables. Maybe Taiwanese haiku is different? ;)

Nice! My heating pad came with similar instructions. Funny funny.

"Please carefully wins easily"?! Man, even Babblefish is usually better than that! :-)

Know This Author I do.
I know this author, he is a Chinese engineer who currently works in San-Jose, and sends me email questions for assistance that appear to be the four instructions for your tea maker but re-arranged in various order, and re sent numerous times, with emphasis that the problem is important.

Although his English is better than my Chineese It's simply because I haven't written *anything* yet, not even a email scrawl.
