Janglish at its WORST

If you have had a baby or small child since I've moved to Japan, you know that my favorite present to send back is baby clothes. Baby clothes here can be found cheap, if you know where to look. And, my favorite store just happens to sell clothes that speak in really, really, really bad English.

For example, this summer, when my parents came to buy clothes for my two young nephews, they were lucky enough to find a shirt that read, on the back, 'It's a hell of a day.'

Tonight was my luckiest night ever. I found the shirt of shirts, which was funny on the front, and funnier on the back. I am NOT kidding that it is the funniest thing I have EVER seen in this country. In fact, I almost choked.

What do you think? I bought it for my future daughter. No joke.

Well I never...And to think you were my son's 1st grade teacher. Maybe the shirt would be a good way to begin "the talk" someday.

Now I wanna have a baby just so you can send me funny baby clothes... although, that's probably not the best reason to want to have a baby. :)
