It seems that t-shirt manufacturers in China have gone so far with Engrish that the next step is complete randomness:

I received this submission back in February – looks like a “Sterility Hospital” in Beijing is using Steve Martin as a spokesperson for vasectomies. Who knew that his “Cheaper by the Dozen” movies would be an inspiration for so many a Chinese to make themselves sterile…

This was submitted to the site earlier this year. It is not quite Engrish, but I don’t get it – can you possibly have a fireproof forest?
I have noticed that our build-your-own calendars are extremely popular as gifts, so I’m adding another coupon for 20% off the purchase of 3 or more calendars! Use the following code:
Calendars are printed to order - pick and choose from over 50 popular images, or choose one of our pre-sorted collections. Must have at least 3 calendars in shopping cart to qualify.
We also have some other savings – the following coupon is good for 10% off any order this holiday season:
If you have lots of shopping to do, you can use this next coupon for 15% off any order totaling over $50.00:
Type in either coupon code as applicable during checkout. The “big-kansha-2009″ coupon will only work with purchases totaling over $50, but the “kansha-2009″ coupon will work with any order. All 3 coupons are good until the end of this year.
There is still a lot of time left to shop if you are in the USA. International orders should be placed by tomorrow, December 1st. Check out our Holiday Shipping Chart here.
Just wanted to drop a note here to say that there will be some crazy savings this Friday at the Engrish.com Store in the tradition of Black Friday. You may have to think fast and act fast for some of these deals so be on the lookout!
The savings this Friday!
Looks like the director’s cut is just one for the boys! (see 2nd paragraph):

You may recall the Clash Engrish post from way back when (we also made stickers out of this design). Well Kirainet.com, run by a Spanish blogger in Japan, made a fun video from the clash signs they found at Hamamatsucho station in Tokyo. Nice to see real life Engrish on video!
Here is a pic that they took of the location:
This semi-Engrishy shirt was spotted in Aarau, Switzerland. ”Far out” dude.
