New Flats For Rent: 2 rooms + Hall + 1 Bathroom + Chicken

A bit off-territory (Salmiya sounds like Kuwait), but too good to miss. Although … perhaps it is after all a chicken, and not a kitchen–a friend in Venezuela had a bullock sacrificed to celebrate his move, and I can quite easily imagine Arabian developers giving away a free chicken with every flat.

Föcked Translation (413): I posted to a light-hearted blog called Fucked Translation over on Blogger from 2007 to 2016, when I was often in Barcelona. Its original subtitle was "What happens when Spanish institutions and businesses give translation contracts to relatives or to some guy in a bar who once went to London and only charges 0.05€/word." I never actually did much Spanish-English translation (most of my work is from Dutch, French and German) but I was intrigued and amused by the hubristic Spanish belief, then common, that nepotism and quality went hand in hand, and by the nemeses that inevitably followed.
