The sign over the door reads: 寧三天不食莫一日無茶
“Better three days without food, than one day without tea.”
And, no, Uncle, we’ve seen you drool over roast duck and fried festival food. So not buying this from you, no matter how much you love tea.
Chey’s Wanted Poster
I am a little said that his name does not have a funny translation on the wanted poster. Ji just means to ‘cross a river’ or ‘to help’. Some people are just not important enough to get officially mocked XD
For added fun: This is what google translate spits out.
Long before the fire coward army deserters Panzei.
New Year’s Eve blast of good fire power.

The Blue Spirit Wanted Poster
The Blue Spirit
kidnapped the Avatar from the Fire Nation.
Wears a blue Earth Kingdom mask.
Unidentified rumor has it that he’s a ghost.
This has not been confirmed.
If you locate his whereabouts,
use maximum force to capture him.
I do realize that my translation differs from the Avatar Wiki one. The wiki one adds implied bits that are not there on the actual poster.
i like how they put that he’s a ghost there
like this is a legitimate thing that could happen
Try to remember that it’s a medieval fantasy world we’re discussing here
Seriously. Did you learn nothing from Hei Bei and the Avatar Spirits that Aang regularly converses with? Aang’s journey to the spirit world? Uncle’s heavily implied journey to the spirit world, which led to his ability to see spirit form Aang when nobody else could?
Y’all best do some thinking before you start spouting off. Even the name he was given, the Blue Spirit, is significant. It means they suspect he may not be human.
海月護佑 - (With the) Blessing and Protection of the Sea and Moon
首長 - Chief (of the Watertribe)
戰士 - soldiers/warriors
東山 - Dong Shan (East Mountain)
And just a small plot reminder: Zuko does find the map and uses it to find Aang. Hakoda is just lucky that he does not relay that information to anyone.
Look who’s trying to get around the chain of command. The wanted poster Zhao threatens Zuko with clearly has not been officially approved yet, since it is missing the official seal.
Seriously, Zhao, if Ozai finds out you are handing out inofficial wanted posters in his name,you are toast.
