The Engrish are coming!

Japanese have this weird way of co-opting culture from all over the world. One area of particular co-option is a sort of pidgin English commonly referred to as 'engrish'. Even though Japanese take English all through grade school to high school, they are taught by, well, Japanese who cannot really speal the language well.

This site is by roving bands of reporters who take pictures of particulary egregious maimings of the English language prevalent in Japan. This is always good for a laugh.
