Worse than Chinglish

What's worse than Chinglish (Chinese instructions translated poorly into English)?

Chinese instructions that are not translated:
This is on a packet of mung bean noodles that I picked up. I tried immersing it in boiling water for a minute (what you'd do with dried rice noodles), but that didn't work. I then left in there, on the stove, for 15 minutes. The noodles remained gelatinous and uncooked.

I suppose the Chinese instructions tell you to soak it overnight in cold water first. Or something. I'm pretty sure step #3 is not to put the gelatinous mess into the trashcan. Which is what I did.
