It’s entirely possible that sophisticated market research has told them people like the wrappers best the way they are…

they make mistakes because people loooove to find and point out mistakes. it has become disappointing to find menus and such where the grammar/vocabulary is appropriate standard formal speech. they make up the mistakes to keep the fun going. watch how easy it is:
-our life is happy people on some days. eat joy.

We as a culture have learned also to just “overlook” misspellings. You get the basic jist. There’s a study on the internet about how if all the correct consonants & vowels are there, you can read it.

‘Jist’ isn’t a word. I assume you meant ‘gist’. Cretin.

I wish I could make this up:

Apparently, this year a patent for a chopstick manipulator was granted.

I guess if you want to eat using chopsticks and can’t use your hand, you’ll need this invention.

Apparantly this event is not isolated to Chinese restaurants.

I went to a Japanese restaurant (owned and staffed by Chinese) that had the same "lesson" on the back of the wrappers. The "engrish" was much better, probably descended from CS-G (12).

What surprises me the most, however, is that no-one has attempted to lift a medium-sized pot of boiling oil and subsequently sued the restaurant and/or chopstick manufacturer. Oh well, give it time.

Great strip! All of you that are sending URL’s and defining how we see vocabulary–can’t you just enjoy the comic strip and Bernie’s added comments? I like the idea much better that they just don’t give a damn. Of course they know how to spell and have spell check! Have ya see the Chinese language?!?They jsut don’t give a damn! Thanks Bernie! Keep it up!
