If you're not familiar with Engrish, I recommend you stop by for a few good laughs. Lisa and I saw many poorly or strangely worded signs, t-shirts, and labels when we were in Japan. My favorite was a t-shirt which said something like "You compument me and I am strong and not haidscaries." I'm not sure what it meant, but I doubt they did either. :) I also liked the "Rubim's Coffee Dinky Coffee Shop" (it didn't look that small to me!) Some lengthier examples are included below from a plastic bag and a restaurant window. Click on them to get the bigger, readable version. Swear words or insults were especially popular, but I didn't take any pictures of those.
