Benign Girl Phone.

I saw this and thought it was hilarious. The word \”benign\” even though its meanings include…

1. having a kindly disposition; gracious: a benign king.
2. showing or expressive of gentleness or kindness: a benign smile.

is not really used in English the way that the manufacturers of the product have used it.

I guess if we were to name this phone along the same lines we would probably use \”kind girl\” or something because \”benign girl\” just sounds funny.

And I love the way it says \”try me press button\” when there are no buttons to press!

How to confuse your child haha.

On Engrish.com they have a similar phone called \”Blandness Girl\” personally I think I would rather be benign then bland.

Oh by the way Truffles didn\’t pee on this one because I had taken it into my work to show my colleagues.

I have a few more gems for you which I will post over the next few days.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Love Me xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
