Chinese Fortune Cookies

Do any of you bloggers have trouble with individuals who leave comments in another language and then a link to a nasty website?  It seems they have found my blog and leave comments in abundance. I wish I could block them, but that is not possible with this platform. 


This is why I moderate my comments, but apparently they haven't figured that out yet! Or maybe they just don't care and enjoy wasting time, hoping for just one comment to slip through and be published.


I thought it would be interesting to translate some of their posts, minus the x rated material. It turned out to be kind of funny, like getting a fortune cookie via my blog every day. Watch out, I might start looking forward to them!


Here is a good one, "Patience is a bitter plant, but the fruit is very sweet." That one has my name all over it. Patience is not one of my strong points. 


And for those of us feeling burnt out, "Persist for a certain purpose or goal, and continuous efforts towards the direction of an established concept." 


And now a bit of humor...something must have gone awry in translation--


"Survival but continued fighting in the heart and soul; writing is sitting their trial."


"Unless a tree in spring bloom, otherwise the result is unlikely in the fall."


Uh huh. 


I'm certain I will have more great material for you, as they will be attempting to leave numerous comments on this post as well! Tee hee!

As predicted, my international "friends" left me a comment! No great pearls of wisdom this time, though.
They write, "Good article, hope to see your PO has been the text" (I excluded the link to the nasty website, of course!!)
Anyone have a clue what kind of text you get from PO??

I've been getting a lot of these lately too. I never thought of them as fortunes as most of them don't make any sense at all. No wisdom for me sadly....

@Prairie - I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! And yes, you're right, most of them don't make sense!
