Offbeat Travel Photo Time!
The Offbeat Travel Photo of the Week is shown below, and it was sent to me via email. It’s one of those photos where you have to say the sign out loud. The louder, the better, as this makes it even funnier!
Basically, this Offbeat Travel Photo highlights the language conundrums of the world. Otherwise, known as Engrish!
I’m just wondering if the returns department of the Wong Fook Hing Book Store is titled? Maybe the Fook Hing Returns section? Sorry, very corny joke!
Holy moly, the options and silly jokes that can be cracked from this sign are potentially endless!
I think this photo was taken in Hong Kong after a Google search – Google knows the answer to everything… And it seems to be circulating the internet in perpetual motion, making English people laugh all over the world.
This picture could be completely doctored for all I know, but I found this Offbeat Travel Photo funny anyway and thought it was worthwhile featuring it because I scored quite a few laughs from it! If I ever come across the shop in Hong Kong, I’ll need to venture inside, and possibly buy a book – hopefully one that almost sounds just as funny as the book shop itself!
If you are still having trouble getting it, read this out loud – WONG FOOK HING BOOK STORE! You will get the gist of it! Make sure all of your family and friends are around to witness it!
Say it again! WONG FOOK HING BOOK STORE.
I wonder where the right one is?
Anyway, for more joy on the misunderstanding of world languages, you can read more at The Joys of Engrish!
