Product Translation Fail

Yesterday, Wife and I went with my mom and stepdad to Shipshewana, a largely Amish community just south of the Michigan-Indiana border. They have tons of great stuff - markets, beards, carriages, etc. One of the attractions we visited was the flea market. While I didn't take any pictures of normal flea market stuff (furniture, pies, kettle corn, antiques, massive amounts of cheap hats, tools, and blankets), I did snap a few pictures of some interesting products. Below is a prime example:

"Miao-ling An usage wound sticking"
"Application: Protect pinhole of transfusion and plaster small wound."
As much as I liked the text in the above captioned, I also liked the fact that the manufacturer felt the need to specifically mention in the Function section that the bandaids have "disposable and separate packing..." Awesome.
