Deep Musings on Doritos / ドリトーズの話しましょう / 看翻譯想正錯


Let me start with this statement:  I think Doritos are pretty much poison and gross, and I rarely ever eat them.

And yet, I can't say I never eat them.  I bought these the other day for the name as much as anything.  I like to buy things that say "American" on them when I'm in another country.  I'm always curious what people's images of America are.  In particular I was curious about these because, while they say "American" in English, the Chinese translation below refers to them as "New York Hot Chicken Wings".  So America = New York?  I think a lot of Americans would disagree with that.  And a lot of New Yorkers too.
