Default Funny Website - Japanese English

Here's a really funny website! Ever see the mangled English that is used in advertising and on packaging in Asia, specifically Japan? Some of it is pretty funny -- apparently, English is considered cool over there, but the people who write the ad copy have NO CLUE....

Anyway, here's a whole website devoted to "Engrish" in various categories. It's really hysterical. Be sure to check out the "Music" section for a really good laugh!
www.engrish.com

Enjoy!

I read that "Ringo" is apple in Japanese.

Maybe "Apple" records was really "Ringo" Records!

Thanks for the laugh!

Every morning I would see her waiting at the stop.
Sometimes she'd shop,
and she would show me what she'd bought.
All the people stared as if we were both quite insane.
