Modern Day Engrish

Okay ... we don't want to mock any of our Asian neighbours but we really do recommend that people in publishing get good translators and proofreaders. These pics came from our new favourite website –  – which features ... well a picture's worth a thousand words. Here are some beauties from the Anime/Manga section, as well as the Books/Magazines section (wonder what Disney has to say about this – we're betting it's unauthorised usage of the Winnie the Pooh character). These pics are just the tip of the iceberg – check out the menus and signs – absolute classics! The archives go back to 1996 – there's longevity in this website. Guess the lessons haven't been learned yet.
