View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Welcome to the world of Engrish, which finds its greatest expression in Japanese and Chinese signs, products, manuals, T-shirts and restaurant menus. Now a cultural phenomenon that has taken the world by storm, Engrish consists of curious misspellings, doubtful abbreviations and jarring word-for-word translations. Fancy a Pocari Sweat soft drink or a Collon chocolate bar? Or perhaps you need some of that Horny face cream? The Joys of Engrish is a hugely entertaining collection of the funniest and most bizarre examples of this delightful alternate-reality version of the English language.

Please make sure you enjoy your pleasant with vigor!
