This book is now perhaps the most famous real Engrish book on Amazon.com.

Back cover of the book: Judging from the reviews on Amazon, some […]
Below is a screenshot of an article from the English portion of a Korean publication. Looks like President Lee is either into Brazilian men or he got a nice shave… You can click on the screenshot image to see the original website – as of today (2/5/09) it has not been corrected. Thanks to […]
Guidespot.com has collected a bunch of funny menu photos from Flickr. Check out their collection here.

I am often asked: “What about the reverse of Engrish? Can’t you post westerners messing up Asian languages?” I suppose I could try, but I would rather post a link to someone who does it right and has a vast knowledge of Chinese.
