Will Miss #26 - humorous misspellings

I've seen pictures of plenty of misspelled signs in America, but they don't carry the same charm as those in Japan. In America, it's just sad that people aren't educated enough to spell basic words properly. In Japan, it's smile-worthy in the same way that a child misspeaking a word can be. It's an innocent error based on language differences rather than a product of ignorance and laziness.

I'll miss the humor and charm of the misspelled words in Japan.

  1. There was an episode of American Dad where Toshi, the Japanese student who can't speak English even though the rest of is family does, said "suck my bowls". They got it past the FCC by actually putting in the subtitles.
