    Magic beer: the more you drink, the less you pee.

    Honestly, officer, I only had one.

    Steal 3, get one year at hard labor.

    If I buy 6 do I get 2?

  11. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:43 am |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    Buy 3 – Pay 2 – Get 1 – Taste none (fine)

    The stuff is so bad, people will pay extra not to have to drink more than one?

    Don’t worry, this shop will be closing next month ^_^

    Get 1, catch 22.

    I didn’t know the makers of Cruel Fruit Juice owned a liquor store.

    I bought a dozen and didn’t get drunk

    @DnT: or it is so good the sellers want you to pay two for them.

    A bargain at half the price.

    Asahi beer! I would pay to not have to drink it.

    While I can’t see the size of what’s being sold, at 15 cents per yuan, the bottle costs nearly what it would here in the USA.

    Sadly, I have seen this exact error at my local grocery store here in the States. More and more Engrish is homegrown.

    But free beer tomorrow!

    That second Hanzi is “add,” is it not? So I guess they’re trying to say, “Buy three get one free.”
    This may be pretty obvious to many of you — but I’m trying to learn some Chinese characters this summer, so I’m very excited I recognized one! :-D

    No, I’m buying 3, and leaving 2 empties on the shelf!

    Finally can fit a 6-pack in my pocket

    I think you are overcomplicated parsing this “sentence”.
    I read it is buy 3 and get 1 free. With “free” being implicit.

    Let me introduce you to this wild new concept, smzkty. It’s called ‘humor’.
