The irony is lost on Paul

dodgy-souvenier-seller

It’s about time I posted this. Months ago this photo on Flickr was spammed by a company selling “all of categories for industries and life”.

I’m sure he never looked closely at the title of the image or translated it in to his local language.. 🙂

Flickr Support promptly removed this individual’s comment and replied,

Dear Sir:

I am a vice director of Flickr Report Abuse Co., Ltd to
supply all of categories for photo-sharing industries and
life.

I am content to contact you for deleting this business.

Joe

I had to read it twice, but cracked me up once I got it! 🙂
