Engrish Shirts

Posted on June 7, 2009


Engrish is the often humorous grammatical translation failure between an Asian language, normally Japanese, and English.

You can find a little Engrish on almost anything that contains writing, like products, clothing, signs, advertisements, and just about anything else you can think of.

This section will focus on Engrish shirts, which can be the funniest Engrish moments, since we often associate what is translated on the shirt with the wearer.

Don’t forget to check out all the various galleries in the Weird Asia News Engrish Section.
