What's that you say?

Certain members of this family have lived in other countries where our attempts at communication were sometimes encouraged, sometimes mocked, and occasionally were close to grounds for legal action.
So it is with deep empathy we share the following examples of Engrish

Mmmmmm, doesn't THAT sound tasty?!

I want one, don't you?
Coffe and paste, a little something to take you back to your youth.

Lastly,

an example we found here at the house.

Made in Chian.

Aren't languages fun?

I need a witty trash can

snavy said...

LOL!! So do the people in Chian speak Chianglish or Chianese or....

Jonathan said...

As a speaker of Spanglish, I find this entire topic somewhat offensive and needlessly controversial.

Also, I am curious. Who taught you to read? Was the the AF, the AM, or one of the Things?

Ariella said...

Salut Egan, we love 'em too.

Doug, doesn't everyone?

Snav, one can only dream.

Jonathan, anyone who has struggles with another language can understand how these happen. Also, there is an entire explanation on the website Engrish. Don't be a hatah, none of us are!
And I just picked it up.

Limey, good stuff, eh?

Jonathan said...

Ari: your point? This isn't about mistakes, per se. I'm just saying that I am choosing to be obstinate and prickly. If I want to be offended, there's not a darn thing you can do about it, now is there?

As a fellow baka gaijin, I really enjoy Engrish and as an English major and former student of Nihon-go, I can appreciate just how immensely complicated and screwed up both languages are. It's a wonder anybody can learn either after childhood.

That was a good laugh. Coffee and paste, I was waiting for Village Idiot to relate it to the coffeeshop not mentioned.
