Now there's some folks who need to work on their ad copy! Someone should send
that to this website: www.engrish.com

If you enjoy these types of fractured English, explore the site a bit. It's
very funny.

The blurb says it is like it is not even there, which doesn't sound
like it offers much support.

I check it every day (no weekend updates) -- sometimes it's hilarious.

I got my fill on engrish when I worked for chinese people in a
retail computer store.

My first day, I was working on a repair, and the boss suggested:
"Why not try derete some fires?"
Now, looking at it on the screen, it might seem easy enough to
figure out; but vocally, it didn't make any sense whatsoever.

He had to repeat it, and then explain it, before I understood that
he was suggesting I free up space on the hard drive by deleting
stuff.

When we were going to ship a computer, which was rare, we used the
"grue gun" to make the ribbon cables stay in place. We also used it
for self defense against Grues, because if you have moved into a
dark place and it is pitch black, you are likely to be eaten by a
grue.

Would your boss have referred to the use of a grue gun against grues
as fighting fire with fire?
