My new bag



Yes---it really says that!

Hello! I was out shopping yesterday with my friend Carlina, and I came across this bag. Since it was pretty cheap, I figured it was worth buying for the laughs. And as an added bonus, it's a nice bag! It has classic Engrish on it. If you're not familiar with the term "Engrish," it is used to describe the funny forms of English you'll find here in Japan. In fact, there's a person who has devoted an entire site to it. Check out http://www.engrish.com/ to see more pictures of stuff that is really funny, and answers to why the Japanese print things like this bag!

HA HA HA HA, mushroom paradise, that's awesome! Man, that Engrish website is hilarious. When at the park, don't forget to "Keep your pets in cluin, and the expeled limg to homr in lebidual in a bag." What the hell are they trying to say??? Or speaking of toilets, you guys have to read the sign entitled "Go into the toilet beard know" with gems like "This toilet provides only into the toilet place, the dissatisfied foot goes into the toilet to have a bowel movement outside of other request." Omigod! I will be laughing at this site for years! :oD

HaHaHa!!!! I loved the bag of bananas that said they were "Healthily Good". That is a great site, I'll have to send some other people to it.

Happy Thanksgiving! I think Engrish or a related phenomenon is responsible for our borrowed baby onesie (for those who haven't seen it, it says "Peter + School = Cat"). Great bag. Did your fab craft store have similar fabric? Stash!

After checking out Engrish.com I felt I could not live without some of the merchandise. I purchased the "Crap" and "Smelly Smell" T-shirts. It was hard not to get the "Evil Humans Go To Hell" (dog saying it) shirt as well.

Your new bag isn't new anymore. We demand a new post. Although I keep going back to engrish.com and getting new laughs, so that was definitely worthwhile! The captions below the photos make them a lot funnier, although Go Into the Toilet Beard Know doesn't need any captioning help. That's definitely holding the title for funniest so far. I've been showing that one to anyone who has the misfortune to get near me and a computer. --Carol
