here's some more winning engrish from your local department store/grocery store, LIFE



winner for best (and so far only) man-sized engrish:
genuine insistence
this also has some engrish on the back i didn't feel like posting, but it's great front and back

winner for best catch phrase (on an otherwise almost correct shirt):

winner for best long-form engrish essay (in sparkle text, no less):

if that person was in my english class...yeah, wow, we'd have to have a long talk.
