Cached version, because nothing ever dies on the internet
Just an FYI, the cached version isn’t working.
Is it because your differents?
Fixed – Thank you – HK
Don’t be too grammatical — it just looks funny with the rest of the sentence. Maybe I should have said to grammary?
It still doesn’t work for me Maybe we are not so similarity after all?
It’s “for your fyi.”
Sigh. A really pathetic part of me kinda wants that poster…
No wonder the rest of the world doesn’t take our educational system seriously! Look what folks put up on the internet!
OK, I meant that one to be a new comment, not a reply. (Stupid mouse) Sorry about that – no insult directed to you, ptpw!
ha ha! It’s ok, after I saw your post I had to double check my post to see where I failed in my grammar/spelling!
If you’re talking about America, in this one blessed instance the illiterate seller is not American.
She’s(?) Latvian, so no worries. We won’t blame you guys on this one.

I live in Australia and one of my best friends is Latvian. She is topping the year at her school(my old chool) in English. Both her and her mother have shops on Etsy and neither of them have grammatically incorrect posters.
I know. As a poor college student I usually can’t afford all the fuckery, but $10 I could manage. I wish they hadn’t changed it. RAWR!!
You could just have the image file printed out, and then send $10.00 to the Regretsy charity fund.
As another poor college student who is also interested in the poster, I feel your pain.
I decided to e-mail the seller telling her that there is interest in the poster in the original format. Hopefully she’ll put it back up!
This is perfect!! I like to focus on how similarity I am to people. I also like how this phrase was used multipurpose!
I was just thinking that!
you CAN use multi purpose
look at all those differents uses!
oh! …remember “know question is to dum!!”
It boggles the mind how similarity we are!
I like your versions better!
Holy shit go visit the shop and look at all the “Keep Calm…” posters. It may be the mother lode.
And by mother lode I mean like four. I thought I saw more, but they all blur together I guess.
Surprised it wasn’t keep clam.
Keep Clam and Celebrate Our Differents? I would totally buy that.
This is the inevitable portion of our program where Mistletoe says “This needs to be on a shirt!”
Oh, yes! That would be my Christmas gift for…um…somebody else.
Mmmmm…I now wish I could get good Pacific Northwest seafood–major downside to living in TX. ‘Keep clam’ is the motto of Ivar’s seafood restaurants…
Ah yes, good Pacific Northwest glow-in-the-dark seafood from Ivar’s.
I believe I’ll take some sparkles and potassium iodide with that!
Is there a Keep Calm and Never Bother with an Original Design one in there? Because someone should make that.
Im actually legitimately upset that the original poster is removed because I wouldve bought as many copies as humanly possible. (I have a Siamese and my friend and fellow Regretsy fan has a chihuahua). DAMMIT! Im going to start a petition to bring back our differents!
I seriously wanted to buy it, too. Damn.
Request a custom print from the seller?
I would have bought the fuck out of that poster.
I just bought one, I think the seller has cottoned on to the whole regretsy thing and they are back up in all their glory!
Judging from the cat’s head shape and fur texture, I think it’s a sealpoint Devon Rex. A differents breed from Siamese, but looks very similarity!
Another try at a cache version!
Maybe it doesn’t work because too many people try and click on them and google doesn’t like that kind of stuff?
Not sure. The one I posted still works for me and I even tested it in IE, which I never use, so I know I hadn’t seen it in there yet. Maybe it caches what IP you first get to it from.
maybe… Does it show the same as the first image in this post?
I find the maker of this to be similarity with this brain dead monkey I tried to pay to write the next great love story. In the end it was decide that we had to killed it, grill it, and wear the pelt.
Should have had a third grader check that over before wasting the ink….
I want a version for the theory of similarity — physics deserves bandwagoning, too!
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Actually that could be used to describe the monkey-creature in the previous listing.
As big a fan of respecting differents and acknowledging mine and others similarity, I must know:
Can you change the size of the smell?
I would say the similaritys outweigh the differentses here:
Cat = not dog
Chihuahua = not dog
True they are technically different species, but the motivation is essentially the same.
Man, I thought Engrish was dead already.
They may be polar opposites, but damn it Hillary Duff and Usher make a cute couple.
I suppose they’re the Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown of their generation. Let’s hope it doesn’t end in drugs, beatings, and other fuckery.
oh shit, then i’m wearing the same shirt as hillary duff right now!
C’mon people, you hardly expect dogs and cats to write perfect English?
On a side note how could somebody expect to sell prints with text when they can’t speak the language? Who is their target audience – Chinese etsians that sell those similarly comprehensible wall decals?
I think the lesson here is that the United States does not have a monopoly on stupid. How do you say, “Google translate is not unerring” in Chinese?
I don’t think they used google translate… I think it’s just English as a second language in primary school…
Yet maybe they ARE hoping that US does have a monopoly on stupid and would buy it for the cuteness of the animals regardless of text?
Yep, she’s targeting Americans…
Well, even that is NOT an excuse. English was actually my second foreign language in school and I think I do ok.
Hey, I speak pretty poor French, but you don’t see me trying to sell posters to French people.
Then again, maybe I should try it.
That’s a good point. The point about the stupid monopoly still holds, though.
Hey, this is pretty passable lolcatspeak (if a bit insufficiently mangled). If the seller hadn’t changed it I would’ve suspected they did it on purpose!
For lolcat speak, it needs to at least spell differents “difrintz” or something like that, right? At any rate, it at least needs a z or two.
This ISN’T a poor attempt at lolspeak? This is just plain ole derp?
Please extend that whoa to include Elton’s fabric choices, which always dazzle.
i have been in just a terrible mood lately, and for some reason the world has given me so much cheerful, inspiration herp derping today.
this came to my attention just before i cruised over here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQTW7Pd1vqc
The new version is still bad… Whoever this Martin Buber (or is it Justin Beaver in disguise) is he should definitely NOT be quoted. AN animal’s eyeS… So I suggest somebody take a screenshot of this too. For there would surely be another attempt!
Did a search for Martin Buber – he was not a native English speaker, so she must have translated his quotation too.
He was a philosopher and is very quotable. I’m not seeing the problem with “an animal’s eyes”. Are you suggesting that “eyes” should be singular? Because most animals I’m aware of have two.
I could of course be wrong but my understanding here is that “animal’s” serves as an adjective describing eyes to which an refers. So (again in my opinion) an can not be used with eyes since eyes are plural and the right way would be animal’s eyes without an. In the same way you wouldn’t say “a mother’s hands”.
I’m going to assume English is not your first language, because you are deeply mistaken here. “A mother’s hands” is absolutely correct, as is “an animal’s eyes”.
“An” goes with “animal”, not “eyes”. It means “the eyes of an animal”.
He is probably quotable in the language he was writing… Or if translated by someone who knows both languages other than this person.
Just out of curiosity, how do you think it should be said…?
Oh, never mind, I see you answered that above.
“Animal’s eyes” doesn’t work without an article. “Animals’ eyes” would work, but changes the meaning.
If you read my previous post I already answered that – animal’s eyes – no an. Same as mother’s hands. But like I said – it’s in my opinion.
If you read my previous post, I noticed that.
Grammar is not a matter of opinion. You’re correcting someone because she didn’t follow a rule you just made up.
Has it never occured to you that sometimes people write replies without refreshing the page so as to see if the other person has added a new response in the meantime?
I didn’t refresh the page while I was typing this.
Sounds like Toki from Dethklock. I can hear it, “We ares so Differents..” ha.
What cans you has the least?
I am admittedly a grammar/spelling snob, but from this whole post the most offensive thing is Justin Bieber’s hair. However, I might be able to tolerate it if he was wearing Elton’s suit.
Doesn’t he look especially awful/silly there? Bieber’s hair is the most asinine fashion affectation I have seen in years. Yes, worse than than wearing your fucking baseball cap at an angle..(maybe.)
Only the fauxhawk/forwardcomb douchebag from “Ghost Adventures” looks more like an idiot.
Thank god Bieber finally got it cut and now looks merely ridiculous. That picture actually makes me feel a little violent towards the little dweeb.
I was cutting my son’s hair on sunday and he asked me to give him a bieber cut. “Sure, we can do that! WHOOPS! Scissors slipped! Maybe next time.”
Apparently correct grammar is worth $2 more. It’s a shame, because I rather liked the original sentiment.
Plus, I’m broke in addition to fat and jealouse, so can’t afford the extra $2.
Thanks for pointing it out, gave me an extra LOL. Some rare people do seem to realize they can cash in on being featured on regretsy. Unfortunately that means we will not see a scary Engrish legal threat from this seller – that would surely be fun to read.
YES! This is my new anit-racism slogan. I think this needs to be framed and posted EVERYWHERE during “Diversity Awareness Week” where my husband works.
I think I love you, angrierthanyou.
I would buy the hell out of that poster! It would look awesome in my classroom!
I hope its not grammar class!
I guess it was easier to find a new quote than to fix the mistakes.
Also, I’m trying to figure out how it can be shipped from Latvia for $3 and still be “carefully packed”, when what I consider the U.S. equivalent for any paper item (Priority Mail document envelope) would cost around $4 just within the country. I’m guessing what the seller means is “carefully folded, shoved in an envelope and sent over on the next boat”.
There are other shipping options besides Priority Mail, you know (well maybe not on Etsy)… First class being one of them.
But do those shipping options make pretty pictures in listings for the Finds hen to peck? That’s what really matters!
There is silver lining in everything.
This is at least cute, unlike that horrendous “ape” doll… Engrish.com anyone?
Almost anything is better than that doll. I had to stay off the site until April posted something else. I’ve had enough hauntings for the day.
Count me as another who’s really disappointed that this one isn’t available anymore.
Somebody else make one like it for ten bucks and I’ll buy it.
Just go to her store, there are about 3 back up for sale now
And they now cost $12 instead of $10.
I noticed that too…
Maybe it’s an engrish/spanglish thing? i mean, it is a siamese kitty and a Chihuahua.
As to not make more language errors, her new version leaves the proper semantics up to the cat and dog.
Was this tagged “steampunk” because, you know Differents Engines are totally steampunk.
We are so differents
But we are so similarity
OK, so next time one of these things comes up, can we get a secret notification so we can go buy it before the seller fixes it? I would so have bought this, just as I would so have bought that wall decal that said “You feel up my sense like a sleepy blue ocean,” and the “I will love you tell the end of time” sign.
You’re ruining it for the rest of us who don’t have time to look for these fabulous finds.
Posts like this make me fall in love with you more and more, Helen killer… *Sigh*
If i were artistic, I would join this text to the pictures of ceramic bowls + the cover of a certain romance novel
How disappointed I was to see that they changed the quote, or this would have been mine. Apparently, correcting the grammar was worth two extra bucks?
Always good to spread the message of Peas, Glove and Hermonie
I just want to say THANK YOU! for making my day! I love this place.
You know, I’m actually rather fond of this rehash- http://www.etsy.com/listing/62494900/keep-calm-parody-giclee-art-print-no-2?ref=sr_gallery_15&ga_search_query=keep+calm&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=
I may need that.
LOL- yes- that is definitely a treasure.
Funny my friend who hates dogs just met her first Chiuaua (sp?) the other day and called me in a tizzy saying, “I need to get a Chiuaua now! They’re like a cat, but they’re not, they’re a dog! They’re so similar though!”
That is far far far too awesome. I love it!
PLEASE PUT THIS IN THE ZAZZLE STORE. I’LL NEED THIS ON A MUG TO COMPLIMENT MY “I MADE THIS HAPPEN IN MY ARTISTIC ABILITY” TOTE BAG.
I think this is actually really charming… I love mistranslations with a lot of sincerity behind them..
it seems like the little chihuahua wrote this poster slogan..
the cat does not look entirely convinced……
I think I need one of these. RIGHT NOW
I think this is so stinkin’ cute! It seems to be an obvious typo….like LOLspeak. LOVE it.
I received an e-mail back from her and she put it back up! It has since sold, but she put another one up:
http://www.etsy.com/transaction/46508419 also from Latvia… WIND FEELING!
The cached link doesn’t work.
I am going to stick my head in the oven now.
