Love all the funny pictures, but I am really impressed with their customer service when you order products. Good quality, fast delivery and refreshingly helpful if you run into issues. Great place to buy quirky gifts.
On the money. Great site to cruise instead of watching the old, soul-sucking, boob-tube. Recommend to all my friends.
Kind of an abstract communal web effort if you think of it. Each photo, after all, had to come from someone traveling out there.
I came across this website by accident, but oh boy, am I glad I found it. It's hilarious and I go there whenever I have some free time.
This is one of the sites I bookmark for reading over my morning coffee. Frankly you either love Engrish to bits or you just don't get it. Those who don't get it probably consider it racist and insulting to the Japanese specifically and Asians in general. And they might be right if the presentation were different. We're not saying "oh look at what the stupid Japanese have done now", but if that's what you want to infer, you won't find anything to laugh at here.
For the rest of us, the concept of "Engrish" has been around for a long time now and might be defined as the various, usually unsuccessful, attempts by the Japanese to make their products either understandable by western tourists, or attractive to young Japanese who want to emulate Western ideas, or both. Prepare yourself for entirely meaningless T-shirt slogans, unintelligible supermarket labels, hilariously inappropriate restaurant menus and more, as the entrepreneurs of Asia open their Webster's at a random page and pick more or less any words that look interesting for their next T-shirt range.
By the bye, this site comes just a little second to my fave Engrish destination at www.engrishfunny.com. Visit both, you can never have too much Engrish.
An Asian person who has not made fun of a family member's English has got to speak a little Engrish him/herself. Engrish.com is a site that compiles all of those strange, indecipherable, incomprehensible signs, food labels, company taglines, t-shirt designs, etc. that you can find in Asian countries, Chinatown stores or on the cards that your (asian) parents (if you have some) write you on your birthday. I get a huge kick out of a lot of these. Here are the most popular: http://www.engrish.com/most-popular/
