The sign between the stores looks like someone is trying to stick a banana into one‘s rear.

Hmmm…it’s mainland China.

This must mean that in the Japanese-oriented section of the mall there are probably a couple of stores right next to each other called “Little Boy” and “Fat Man”.

Just for the irresistible temptation (by Chinese mainlanders) to poke the Japanese in the eye every chance they get.

@Major Burns 0630:

…which would be called what: Shoe Boy?
(or the color of the polish?)

You know of course there’d be a telephone booth next to the shoeshine stand and a store next to that called “Under Boy”.

(Apologies to our UK/AUS/NZ audience. It’s possible one may need to be a North American of a certain age to “get” this one.)

Never having studied Latin, I put your post into Google Translate.
Which resulted in some pretty serious Engrish:

“Muse Wisdom fixe is in the ear can not hear you”

Say whaaaaaaaat???

@Pete 0705 hahahahagurgle. I would expect little better of Google translate. It is verily, quite capable of generating WWWIII Musa Sapientium is the ancient banana genus of seeded bananas. if you live in the tropics you should be able to grow ’em. Ergo; I cannot hear you I have a banana stuck in my ear. Te audire no possum = It is not possible to hear (you) musa Sapienteum fixe est in aure = (a) banana is fixed in my ear.

– You can get this one for 500 000 yuan: he can play 92 keys instead of the usual 88! He’s a gifted boy, what else can I say?
– What’s his name?
– Bösendorfer.
(Look it up if you’re unsure what it is.)

Roger that on Google Translate starting WW3!
I’ve gotten some pretty hilarious results using that so-called “tool”.

Thanx for the typo fix, mate.
‘Coz if you called me “my pet” I’d have hopped on Quantas, flown across North America and the Pacific just to head to Oz and belt ya one.

But since ya fixed it, I won’t!
Instead I’ll just shout ya a beer remotely.

I heard Yankee Candle Boy used to be next to Chipotle Boy but used to always ask to see Chipotle Boy’s green card. So they moved Yankee Candle Boy next to Banana Republic Boy as punishment.
