Reminds me of some brand of paracetamol. Their packaging had instructions in pictures. Picture 1: Person with headache. Picture 2: Person takes pill. Picture 3: Person is happy. They then shipped to the Middle-East and Asia... Where they read from right to left Can't find a picture right now.
There is also the Mitsubishi Shogun (UK name) also known in Australia and Japan as the "Pajero". Which is unfortunate if you speak Spanish ... as it means "a person who plays on their own", if you know what I mean. A neighbour of mine had a second hand imported one, and I have to say that watching him drive round with "Pajero" emblazoned on his vehicle fit really well...

If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
