The Game

The Game

Ok, this isn't Engrish, but I thought it was internet worthy. I found this in the walkway by the new Co-op parking garage that's being built in Austin. I know I'm playing the game so I lose, but at least I'm telling you about it!


Marriage?

Marriage?

I might be mistaken (no, really, I might), but I think they forgot an 'r'


Oh MYLORD...

Oh MYLORD...

...I think I need some new clothes. This is what this store makes people think. Must they use the Lord's name in their store name?


Nudy Boy

Nudy Boy

Contrary to what the sign says, Stuart is not nudy. THIS is a clothes shop? How very odd...


BANG BANG!

BANG BANG!

My baby shot me down? One of the many pachinko parlors in Omura. Got a kick out of the name. BANG BANG!

Mmmm roasted peas. I love the caption on this thing. Do YOU have joyful talking with fresh beans like I do??


From 70 to 10%?

From 70 to 10%?

I think they were a little confused on this one...or maybe it's not really a bargain afterall?


NO HELMETS!

NO HELMETS!

If you are wearing a helmet, you are banned from this store!


Breath WASH

Breath WASH

Ah yes, I have always wanted BOURBON breath wash gum. The flavor doesn't last long, though. (Don't worry, Bourbon is the brand name).


Watering Kiss Mint Gum

Watering Kiss Mint Gum

I don't even know what to say, except that this is pretty good PEACH flavored gum. Mmm, reminds me of Pinky (a brand of mint in Japan, except I haven't seen pinky since I've been here!!)


I LOVE COOL!

I LOVE COOL!

Hahaha, this is a shirt I bought (for super cheap, too! woohoo!) I love it...i love cool! Cool = ice cream? I should use this saying. Mmmm cool! :D


The Simple PRICE

The Simple PRICE

Ah, the simple life...I mean PRICE? lol. Although, DANG! That whole thing of tea was only 103 yen? My tiny water bottle cost 120 yen! Maybe it really is "the simple price"...but I thought the phrase was funny. (Btw, people carry these things around and drink out of them like they were bottles. Yes, it's hot here.)

They forgot the "H" -- thus making it funny. Also, there are clearly some upside down yellow arches on the top. Haha, McDonald's anyone?
