I just found the book. I doubt these are true, but they're worth a giggle:

"Notice in an Austrian Hotel:
In case of fire do your utmost to alarm the hall porter"

"Advertisement in a Brazilian newspaper:
Paying guest. Goog opporruny for a snigla refined gentleman. Large room nicely furnished, splendidd food. Six snidoros facing sea, quite close to bashing beach."

"Notice in an Italian Hotel:
Visitors are requested not to throw coffee or other matter into the basin. Why else it stuffs the place inconvenient for the other world."

I read in a book of mine called 'The Book of Mistaikes" that a company in the 70's started marketing their products in Russia with the slogan "Out of Sight, Out Of Mind". When it was translated back into english, it came out as "Invisible Lunatic". They changed their slogan.

Damn what a suprise!I got my Sebor's Absinth delivered to my doorstep today....not even a week after I put in the order! Exceptional service!

I recevied 2 X 50cl bottles plus a drinking pipe.

As far as Australian customs went, well not a hitch. All arived unopened in perfect condition.
It seems that it is indeed easy to order your own absinth into the country. Excellent news indeed.

I'm saving these bottles for new years eve, so I will be sure to post a review of my first absinth experience then.
