Could I interest you in a Chocolate Collon? And would you like a cool can of Plussy to wash it down? If you're looking for a fun book to read, or anything else, Engrish has it in stock.

Collon is delicious! The inside is like if you fed someone only powdered creamer for a year, and then chopped their colon into bite-sized pieces.

And who doesn't like sweet, refreshing Plussy?

Can I get mine with some Calpis on the side?

If you like this kind of thing, you'll love Vice's Tidbits column. I know that I've seen Chocolate Collon there before.

you mean engrish?

or maybe engrish?

Although you're pointing out things on the site that no one's linked to before, I just thought I'd bring it up.

Besides that, this is hysterical.

Yeah... this is five years old or more. Good topic for your first (triple) post...

Well, after two years, I think you deserve to be reminded of it.

And if you haven't seen Engrish, you damn well haven't seen its counterpart, Hanzi Smatter. A highlight: Nike shoes with kanji reading "self doubt."

I'd buy a crazy diarrhea shoe!

I just had some collon last night (courtesy of a friend in town from Tokyo bearing candy gifts). In fact, we had a conversation about the hilarious names of Japanese products. I *heart* engrish.

Has anyone run across the "Ringrish Teacher"? It was a blog from a while back about a black man teaching english in Japan. I wish I still had the link. He quoted stuff from primary-school kids, like, "Oh, biggu brack man, you have biggu dicku!!!"
