Engrish

For today's Festive Friday with Fun on the Blog - it's the final segment of our making-fun-of-English Tribute week!

Probably the funniest thing about the English language is when it is translated from another language. About 7 years ago I ran across this website Engrish.com A man had been traveling back and forth to Japan so often and started to notice all of the errors in English advertisements (mostly due to the Japanese confusion of R's & L's). He decided to post them online. Here are some of my favs... oh - and it is funnier if read out-loud.


Hmmm.... perhaps virtual bowling is virtually boring!
Infectious Laugh - not Infections. And he is a hot item, not that he is a hottie! tee hee!
I think they mean "smells" refreshing...
How many wishes does one exactly get with his lunch? Let's not be Greedy!
Personally, I like to Lub Rotion on my dry hands.

I always feel re-fleshed after drinking lemon.

so - what you're saying is these are diapers?

Oh good... cuz I trined others that weren't so plentiful taste.
Trying to eat pizza which delivers various tastes always eases my anxiety!
hmmm... I'll leave this one alone.
I am assuming this is next to a fire extinguisher?

Hmmm - Dericious!

too funny!

Will someone please order the car to stop eating??? oh - you mean Odor-Eater!!!

Stay away from the brown ones.
Maybe you could wash it down with chunky milk too?

By the way - this is a package of men's boxers.
Bottled?
because batteries are always so tempting...

Ok I'm just totally confused about that letter to the customers. can't make heads or tails of it but I think the owner must have a really good heart. lol

Okay the word verification was not working and it said visiual verification, so does that mean I put my face on the monitor and then you will take my comment? Oh hey it is working no, no scary face to worry about.
