Fw: It's Now Confirmed!

Sign on highway in Northern Kenya, near Sudan border.

They know! When will we know? How did we get out of the "loop"?

This was immediately suspicious, since there's no reason a Kenyan sign would be written in English and Arabic. The official languages of Kenya are English and Swahili (which is written in roman script). A little bit of playing around with Google's online translator revealed that whoever Photoshopped this fake sign had a sense of humor. Here is how you write "Kenya" in Arabic:
You don't have to read Arabic to see that what's under "Kenya" on the sign looks nothing like that. However, here's how you write "Hawaii" in Arabic:
Compare those characters to the sign. And note that Arabic is written right-to-left. It seems the Arabic on the sign says "Hawaii", backwards!


  1. and so is "Kcarab Amabo"

  2. Lol and under birthplace of barack obama, in arabic it says "this is NOT the birthplace of barack obama"..
