Kung Fu Humor: Subpar Subtitles

Time for another installment of Subpar Subtitles!

Sometimes the language barrier is harder to break than a stack of boards, and they say English is the hardest language of all to learn. Literal translations of cliches and sayings common to a particular language can be quite comical. Here's some screen caps of English subtitles taken from various kung fu and action films. Special thanks go out to Hong Kong Subtitles on Facebook and twitter. Enjoy!

That's gonna be a long list of credits...

And they go well with your underwear shoes!

Well aren't you special?

Uh oh, looks like the Chupacabra finally has some competition!

Kind of young to have that attitude already, no?

The birds and the bees, Asian style.

Go ahead, I think I'll pass...

That chicken ass must be a delicacy in China!

"I have come here to avenge my teacher..."
