Here’s a map of the world with literal translations for country names. Of course, take some grains of salt along because not all names are translatable, and not all translations are correct.

Conventional wisdom would argue that this shower curtain needs to be trashed. To that wisdom I say, you need to go back to your decade. Although the product description of “Watch, play with or listen to your phone or tablet” is trying too hard, this curtain has its uses.
