Japanaventurs 4: English

The Japanese do some very interesting things with the English language. They’re all required to take English for a few years in school as youngsters, but just enough of that sticks to be dangerous. T-shirts and stores often have rather nonsensical strings of words that can be highly amusing. My favorite, I did not get a picture of, but it was a T-Shirt that said "Jesus Love Ice Cream. Jesus Hate Chocolate". Here are some other examples:

36 Kinds of American Muffin at Mrs. Elizabeth Muffin

Blender of Tinkerbell

Rough Nuff Respect You!! Bigup Yourself!!

Do not be Playful Around the Handrail

Old England: Paris

Ghetto: Happy Dining

Natural Control: Jesus Loves Me

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
