Found at Tokyu Hands in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

They meant “wait packs” or “fanny packs”.

Life can never be exactly as we want it to be.

I wonder who will say “they cost an arm and a leg”?
Oh, well……

No, seriously, did you notice they’re from Tokyu Hands? 😀

Airlines are really cutting back on amenities nowadays. I can remember when they provided body bags. You didn’t even have to ask for one.

“If you’re going after Rambo, don’t forget one thing.”
“What’s that?”
“A lot of body bags. Lucky for you they’ happen to be on sale.”

OK, so I made the last part up, but the rest of it was from First Blood.

@ jjhitt: Ah, it must be the Christmas season… or, because death/dying is an Engrish state, called ‘before living’…?

Those are pretty small body bags. I think they’re geared towards victims of Jack the Ripper.

The funny thing is that that’s -exactly- what the accompanying Japanese says. The other sign says “day bags.”

DrLex: Actually, I think they’re for dearly departed house pets. Or, being that they’re sold in Japan, virtual pets. 🙂

I’m shocked, SHOCKED, that Tokyu Hands made such a boo boo…especially as their stores are flooded with foreigners they could have asked…or just watch them laugh and snap photos of their signs.

Another victorious sighting for Engrish.com!

Well, I am from switzerland. And a few years ago, when this style of bag was fashionable, we actually used to call them “body bags”. Even after they pointed out to us what it actually meant.
