I think this is one of the most entertaining challenges on Hive, and this celebration of when English goes beautifully wrong just needs a little more exposure.
What Is #Engrish?
If you're not familiar with the word "Engrish," it is a term used for the misspelling or misuse of the English language by native speakers of Asian languages.
Although the ASEAN Hive Community is focused on Southeast Asian content, this challenge is open to all Hivers who find #Engrish anywhere on spaceship Earth.
Whether it be a menu, clothing, or even public advertisements, Engrish is everywhere if you look for it, even in native-English speaking countries where public schools have failed.
I would love to see the Engrish around you, so get out your camera and get snapping. The more Engrish you can find, the better, and I'm a sucker for a story, so tell me the who, when, where, why, and how of your Engrish findings.

I think it's pretty obvious that the local authorities are trying to notify the public that a blind person lives in and travels within this area. There are only good intentions with this, but surely in a modern country like Thailand, you would think signs like these would've been standardized by now.

A good effort indeed, and I don't think #Engrish speakers would have trouble understanding the core message. My wife still gets frustrated with whether or not put an s on the end of nouns. Well, assuming the laundry is done within an hour, why does the collection process have to be so fast? What do they do, throw your freshly laundered clothes at you and kick you back out the door with lighting speed?
