I've been seeing a lot of users complaining about grammatical/spelling mistakes made by some users. Be thankful that our Engrish isn't as bad as Japanese...

I heard that Japanese can't say "L" at all! That's why it says Rock instead of Lock!

That's correct! there is no "L" "X" "Q" and ?"V"? in their language  Big thumbs up I find their language very restricted.
Here's More Engrish!

Thats correct. My local ice rink has no locker room, it does have a rocker room however...By the way T, they are getting these pics from www.engrish.com. They have a whole bunch. I can think of 2 other funny things I've seen since moving here. One was on a menu of some sort, it was advertising a salad. But instead of saying cabbage, they said garbage. And a few weekends ago I saw a guy wearing a T-shirt that said "I hate myself and I want to die".

International versions of Engrish are funny, i've seen loads of spelling mistakes on loads of stuff, its just hella funny  Smile/happy/getting dizzy.

Most common mistakes are on menu's.

One of my favorite things about The Simpsons is that they put in subtle bits of humor that most people miss, like Bart and Milhouse snooping around "Morningwood" Penitentiary.
Did anyone catch the episode when they were in Japan? Watch the background and you'll see them pass a "Toys 'L' Us".

Loved it!

Now if we just could get the Canadians to figure out how to pronounce the letter "O", eh?

...And even though it isn't printed Engrish, Back east, I had a Japanese Supervisor. Great guy, but he had the L/R difficulty. What makes it funny is that we worked at a company called "Callery Chemical", and our Admin. Assistant's name was "Lorraine".
These words came out something like "Caahhaarry" and Lohhlaine. Not to mention all of the funky chemical names.

My fave in Japan is the 'Kirin City' chain of bars at train stations.

Of course Japanese pronounce 'c' as 'she' so at these bars you can enjoy a glass of "kirin shitty black' beer and a quick snack.

Allow me to recommend the shitty hot dog or perhaps the shitty pizza. The shitty continental breakfast is a good deal ....

You can find them all here.

And the guy who made the crack about Canadians and the letter "o" I assume you're reffering to the "oout and aboot" (out and about). Well that's only in Ontario and other parts of eastern Canada.

For many years I had a lot of association with fairly senior Japanese businessmen, and from time to time took them into the bush for some local sightseeing. On one occasion, one of them looked on the ground, pointed to some objects, and asked: "Is that the shit of the kangaroo?"
On being assured that it was, indeed, the shit of the kangaroo, the group proceeded to collect the little black marble-sized objects, wrap them in tissues and put them in their pockets to take home.
I guess they are now mounted on some corporate desk in Tokyo....if they didn't mistake them for sweets on the flight home.

Why do so many Japanese people live in Harrow? (a North London suburb)
They land at LHR, get into a taxi, and being polite say 'Harrow driver!'
