Cuando tienes sed, no importa si el agua está embotellada o enlatada, siempre que puedas tomarla.

When you are thirsty, it doesn't matter if the water is bottled or canned, just as long as you can drink it.

Es una mala interpretación! El traductor japonés debía haber dicho, " agua enlatada," en vez de "agua embotellada." Una equivocación fácil de hacer!

A bad interpertation. The Japanese translator should have said, "canned water," instead of "bottled water." An easy mistake to make!

  • una "mala interpretación" .... dicho: "agua enlatada" en vez de "agua embotellada". Despite its "el", agua is a femenine noun . Well done, Joe! :) - cogumela Mar 18, 2011 flag

Bad joke warning!

If you are thirsty enough you'll drink whatever water you can.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

¡Adviso! !chiste malo! Si tiene suficiente sed beberás todo el agua que puedes.

No digas que no te advertli.
