Engrish agogo and other observations

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 12:09 am

Pointless observation of the night: “October” spelled backwards is “Rebotco”, which would make a really good name for a robotics conglomerate in a science-fiction story.

And tonight’s amusing link is the ever-popular Engrish, which this week shows a prime example of how not to romanize Eric Clapton’s name. I think you can already guess how it’s spelled before you even go there. 🙂

And while we’re on the subject of Engrish, here’s a link from the site’s forums that I found amusing: Japan-food1. “Oh! Rice wants to have come to eat me!”
