What is Engrish?

Engrish can be simply defined as the humorous English mistakes that appear in Japanese advertising and product design. Engrish can be found all over the world, but the vast majority of the really funny and creative Engrish is from Japan.

I love the prescriptions and the santa one.

Well, not really if they're selling their ear wax. That's kinda praising the Jews.
You couldn't even sell a Christian's ear fungus if you tried!

You've got to admire their bluntness. They don't pull punches. None of this "PC" bullshit.
