The Things You Find While Birding

My birding pal Terry Moore and I found these paper towels in a roadside store in Brazil last summer. We couldn't resist taking a photo and I tried to ask the store owner if they had the same brand, but in toilet paper. He did not really understand what I was saying (my Portuguese being on-existent) or why we were laughing ourselves silly over some stupid paper towels.

Birding in foreign lands is fabulous. But even better are some of the funny product names you encounter.

Does using this product make you feel better about yourself? Because Bounty surely doesn't.

My favorites are the Mexican brands Fud and Bimbo bread.

Actually truth-be-known, the store owner was probably bored-to-death of being asked that question by laughing-themselves-silly American tourists... ;-)
