    Endorsed by Mao Ying.

  12. Long Tom | 5:27 am |

    In high school I once saw a T-shirt with the word “adidn’t” on it. That I am sure was deliberate.

  13. Yu No Hoo | 5:29 am |

    One size fist all.

  14. jjhitt | 5:30 am |

  15. jjhitt | 5:31 am |

    Bna: (n) a very short banana.

  16. Big Fat Cat | 5:38 am |

    I guess Puma was cooked into a meal at this Chinese hotel.

  17. Big Fat Cat | 5:43 am |

    BN or NB (new balance)?

  18. Ben | 5:44 am |

    Given 144 pairs they’re bound to get it right eventually.

  19. DrLex | 5:47 am |

    They’re collectibles. Collect all 23. (Not 24, because the collection obviously does not include ‘NIKE’.)

  20. Droll not Troll | 5:55 am |

    Mdae in Chnia.

  21. EffEff | 6:04 am |

    These are the same British North America slippers worn by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867. (Canadian history)

  22. Pete | 6:16 am |

    Proud members of the Hainan Basketball Nock-off Assembly.

  23. Frank Burns | 6:41 am |

    I bought a wrench once that was stamped “dorp forged”. Guess where it was made.

  24. Classic Steve | 7:39 am |

    No thanks; got any Roobek?

  25. UCity | 8:12 am |

    What kid doesn’t aspire to play in the All-Tsars game?

  26. Marum | 8:33 am |

    @FB 0641. What’s wrong with having your spanners made by a dorp?

    Good tradesmen are hard to some by.

  27. Geo | 8:35 am |

    Not long after, I found “KINE” slippers. Unsurprisingly, they were made of cows’ leather.

  28. Geo | 8:38 am |

    BNA –> Bowlers’ National Association

  29. Marum | 8:45 am |

    Actually I like “mondagreens”, and the way the name came about, malapropisms, spoonerisms, puns, and the myriad of crazy things one can do with english

    ‘O ye Highlands,
    And ye Lowlands,
    Where hae yer bin,
    They’ve slain the Duke O Moray,
    And Lady Mondagreen.
    (Laid him on the green) Hence: (which lay heggs) mondagreens.

  30. Marum | 8:54 am |

    Even the Maori language is subject to mondagreens.

    The Maori version of the NZ national anthem. first two lines:

    ♫E Ihowa atua.
    O nga iwi matou ra♪

    The kids sing O nga iwi Matoura. “Matoura” is a town in the south island

  31. Marum | 9:00 am |

    @Geo 0838.

    BNA = Banana Nibblers Association. 👿

  32. Marum | 9:12 am |

    Sori. How rude of me
    First two lines translation.

    ♫O Lord, God,
    Of nations and us too♪

    It is not a translation of the “white/English version. ie

    ♫God of angels at thy feet,
    In the bonds of love we meet♪

    Or as the Rugby Union players sing it.:

    God of angels at thy feet,
    Give us shoes for we’ve flat feet?

  33. markm | 9:25 am |

    Ben: They don’t want to get it right. They claim that “BNA” and “NKIE” aren’t trademark infringements because they aren’t spelled “NBA” and “NIKE”.

  34. Pete | 10:24 am |

    Maybe they were trying to spell “nookie”?

  35. Pete | 12:42 pm |

    Next product up: Daddias.

    (Daddy @$$?)

  36. Geo | 1:42 pm |

    Buy ‘N’ Arge is your superstore
    We’ve got all you need
    And so much more!
    Happiness is what we trade
    That’s why everyone
    Loves BNA!
    (Anybody watch Wall-E, anyone? I was reminded of this the second time I saw this Engrish.)

  37. Peter | 4:09 pm |

    Nkie or Knie?
    Nope thanks. Give me Sadida or Corkport

  38. Garst | 11:00 pm |

    The end is knie

  39. Anomoly | 9:35 pm |

  40. Marum | 7:56 am |

    EDIT:
    Got the rugby version wrong.

    God of angels we entreat,
    Give us shoes, for we’ve flat feet.

  41. John | 7:39 pm |
