When Arabic Translator's Mix up the "B" & "P" sounds in English to disasterous results

This is actually a shop in Saudi Arabia, not Oman, but I've seen similar ghastly tanslation errors here concerning these two sounds. This store, according to the Arabic should be "Born Fashions" but using the "p" instead of the "b" to show off how fancy the translator's English is results in "Porn Fashions"
Funny huh, in Saudi Arabia your DVD of "Puss & Boots" is likely to be confiscated as pornography materials, but no one has noticed this particular sign;)

Boxie: MOP read the little sign which said which Prince/Shiekh cut the ribbon to open it for its grand opening;)
