[Engrish] Noncomburnable

Last of the crap-cam pics, this one from the 'local' (within an hour's drive) Starbucks.

The irony here is that everything else at Starbucks is pretty good English. It's the same at every Starbucks in Japan. (Google)

  1. Owen! Long time no see. I was beginning to wonder what happened to you.

    Actually, it was my Asian girlfriend who pointed it out to me. And then made fun of me, the native English speaker, who didn't see it (I, uh, wasn't wearing my glasses that day...).

    Interestingly, I'm beginning to wonder if the whole Engrish thing is not accidental. I've seen intentionally-Engrish t-shirts, from both Japanese and American companies.
