Vending Machines, No. 84


  1. Another funny (at least to me, as a non-speaker of English) expression: "gauche beauty". What's that, exactly?

    Have you noticed the white trash-bin at the left side of the vending machine? Two black eyes. Gauche beauty, maybe? Or simply another alien watching us? Maybe a Japanese version of R2 D2...

    Word verification: "ketching"... seems very appropriate!

  2. Claudia,
    Heh, I wondered about "gauche beauty" myself. I have no idea what it means (it's a hairdressing shop). I actually checked the dictionary to see if "gauche" had some meaning I didn't know about. It doesn't. This is just another example of mangled English (and French?).
