A restaurant in Beijing, China is serving a rather delicious dish of stir-fried wikipedia (also available - steam eggs with wikipedia). Curious to know what it looks like. Here's a picture. [via]

The Chinese says "bai you bao ji cong", although how you'd get "wikipedia" out of that I don't know. Quite a few stories of similar gaffs have been posted over on Language Log (http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/).
One of my favourites, which I ran into by chance online, was a picture of a sign in a Chinese hospital which had English translations beside the Chinese. In one case, patients were being directed to the "C_nt Examination" room.
