Of all the wonderful EngRish out there, T-shirts are tops. Not only do they provide us with frequent EngRish sightings, but honestly, I think T-Shirt EngRish is really the greatest EngRish you can find… I mean, people actually wear this stuff! And you know what? I for one love them dearly for it.
Seriously, the prospect of chasing down a moving EngRish target to try to capture a stealth photo of the offending garment… well, it’s something everyone should try at least once before they die.
Anyway, today I’ve got a bit of a China/Japan theme going on with some T-Shirt EngRish I’ve come across over the years. Enjoy!
From Tokyo, Japan, one of my favourite T-Shirts ever… EngRish gold;
A poem or simply random English words strung together on a T-shirt? Who cares ?! It has combined the words ‘R.Feather’ and ‘Spirit Coin’ for no apparent reason… which make is a highly desirable item of clothing in my book. Why-oh-why didn’t I buy when I had the chance??
Item 2 today comes from Chengdu, China;
I think that print would do better on a little party pill than on a T-shirt…. perhaps that’s where the inspiration came from, hmmm? Gold.
Back to another Japanese wonder;
“Some Wonders Lurk In This Stuff
This article is turning me on I don’t
KNOW The Reason Why,
though being relieved by health”
Umm… Yeah. I don’t know why this article is turning you on either…. some wonders indeed.
And finally, another from China;
Now, after studying this strange message for a while, I’ve managed to extract the following message by popping a space between some letters to make actual words and moving them around – a long shot, yes… ‘Six years ago prior to this he had been active’… then there’s the left over letters that spell ‘sago’ which doesn’t seem to fit anywhere. Yah, it still makes zero sense even after cryptic fiddling. I believe this makes it Pure EngRish. Anyway, now we know what friendship is, right? Good.
