Aerosmith Lost In Translation

Giant bowls of M&M's with one color extracted, exotic foods and rare beverages... artists and tour managers sometimes use tough to fill requests in contracts to test a promoter and venue's ability to deliver - and other times just to mess with 'em.  In the case of the Aerosmith contract for a concert in Bogota, Columbia it appears things just got lost in translation.  According to the newspaper El Tiempo, the contract in Spanish for the group's May 20 show requested 'two tubs of buses and a dirty dish' and 'five coffee tables without call candles' when the band intended it to call for Japanese, Chinese and Indian food, along with sugar-free cookies, fruits, yogurt and root beer.  Sounds like it could have been written by the guy who put together a marketing campaign south of the border for the Chevy Nova before realizing 'no va' means 'won't go' in Spanish.
