They have pretty good sales although as I can speak Japanese I know all the stuff they write on their tops is total gibberish.

Japanese people actually go into their shops just to laugh at how bad their stuff is.


Clothing companies in the far east have this problem too.

I wasn't really surprised when James May walked into a fashion outlet named "Sperm".

But the loud guy he was touring around with wore some great stuff. "I <3 MY WIFE", I just couldn't tell if it was sincere :lol:

I really want that diarrhoea t-shirt. Yeah I lived there for two years and friend and myself would spend time looking at all the badly written English in the local shops.

Is it worth pointing out I could also do it.

Sorry that's what happens when you're skiving off work on GRcade because nobody can tell you not to.

It'd be easy to make a "who?" joke, but seems a bit mean with 1000s of jobs at risk

Every post on my town FB page is about if a local area called Welney wash is flooded (most of the time it is) or moaning about the latest pothole outside ASDA.

The page for my local area is usually full of people moaning about the empty shelves in Morrisons.
