    “Hele we have arr kinds of sucks”
    “Socks is Jesus for feet wash we have all”
    “Anything but pants!”
    “Here we have disappointment”

    This Spanish guy is in Brissie visiting some rellies. Halfway through his stay he finds that he needs some socks.
    Despite the fact that he speaks no English he walks dow the road to a Menswear Store in Paddington.
    He says to the shop assistant: “Un paar de medias por favor.”
    The shop assistant says;’ Huh!’ He asks again with hte same result.

    Then the Spanish bloke sees a rack full of socks. He goes over grabs a couple of pair, comes back wavung them at the shop assistant, and says; “Eso si que es.”

    The aussie shop assistant says;’ If you know how to bloody spell it, why don’t you just friggin as for them.’

    The two real-life-looking mannequins outside the store posed with their arms up seem more appropriate for “all kinds of gloves” shop.

  22. Davey8 | 5:03 pm |

    I’m sorry, but *how* exactly is this Engrish?

  23. Alan | 5:39 pm |

    We had one of these in Nara. The best part is what copo stands for. Our shop was subtitled,

    Cheap! Original! Popular! Oh Good!

    The Japanese are trying not to laugh at at the excited gaijin girls.. You’d think they’d never seen a sock shop before.

  25. EffEff | 7:45 pm |

    Is this like the huge Gum store that used to be in Moscow?

  26. Petrander | 2:33 am |

    I love the old 80’s MacIntosh font.
