This week we’re focusing on a terribly designed T-shirts. And I don’t talk about the quality, because as we know some clothes from China will break the very same day (I’m looking at you Blue Cardigan) and some others are used as nuclear bomb shelters, i.e. my mother’s purse.
My parents don’t really speak English so they always snap a picture of the item they want to buy just to make sure they won’t run around the city with ‘I f**k on the first date‘ at their back.
Similar situation when it goes to Chinglish – one of the hand-carries for the airplane I’ve seen looked like the designer just put random sentences through the Internet translator and hoped for a miracle.
Luckily, they have me so I can save them from being famous on Buzzfeed or 9GAG.
Same as with tattoos, if you don’t speak the language and you don’t know anyone who does, it’s better not to buy a T-shirt just because it’s ‘so cool’ and end up with a random, weird, funny or offensive message. Ask the Hemorrhoid Boy from my last post – he knows that pain by now.
Here’s our list of the funniest, the weirdest and the most bizarre Chinese T-shirt fails with the translations. Hope you will giggle as much as we did!
1. I love sex the most (everyone can, but why say it in public? :D)
3. Chicken (she didn’t learn anything from the chicken tattoo lady – for those who don’t know, in Cantonese chicken is a term used to describe a prostitute)
5. Retard/stupid (this one is tricky, the site we went through sells the T-shirts with English descriptions but they are misleading, this ‘retard’ was suppose to be ‘strength and honor’ – be careful!)
BONUS ROUND – because everyone makes mistakes, despite their age, gender, race. And thanks to them we can all smile a bit!
Luckily me and my teenager T-shirt ‘Princess looking for a prince’ is not on the list, phew.
And for those who can read Japanese, BONUS ROUND #2 – you can visit this site (click here) to check out Japanese T-shirt fails we found while looking for the materials for this post!
I know some of you already shared their experience with terrible T-shirts in my last post, but if you know more stories don’t hesitate to share. I would love to read that! And think two times before you buy something! 😉
