Engrish* in Taiwan

By panda_eyed
Hi All, I haven't been very well lately and so I've been a bit neglectful of the blog and all you smashing bloggers, so sorry! I've been at home, sleeping a great deal and watching lots of crap TV, so you'll forgive me for not having much to blog about. I thought I'd post some funny photos that I took in Taiwan last Christmas. They tickled me a great deal!

A shoe shop
Kiss them, dammit, what you waitin' for??

A signpost in Taiwan's national park
Better than watching paint dry, anyday.

Another shoe shop -
Sod hoes! Steady on..

The design on a packet of lobster crackers -
It reads 'Lobster with big eyes' (- ?!!)

And last but not least, a dessert menu in a cafe -
You can choose from one ball or tow ball - or - Screw icecream! Have a muffing!

LOL! Later potater xx

*Engrish can be simply defined as the humorous English mistakes that appear in oriental advertising and product design (definition by Engrish.com)

    Nikki, you're right, I didn't! I have lots more actually - silly things like 'Wanko' the boutique. The things I didn't get pics of were 'Bonky Parking' carpark and 'Fuk mi' Noodles! :D

    Lol Livvy, me too! There are some serious giggles on that site! Thanks for the tuddles lovely. Hope you're well!

    Hi Flighty, I do feel a lot better today, thanks! I'll pop by Henk's in a sec, our little bday boy! :)

    JL, I'm going to Hong Kong this xmas - I'm sure I'll get more classic photos then!

    Hello Buttons! I get no end of Engrish amusement in the far east. These photos cheered me up, glad they made you smile too!

    Sunny, the lobster crackers were quite yummy actually, lol, but I know what you mean. Prawns have the same habit too.. Hope your foot is healing well xx
