If you’ve ever been to Asia, you may well have noticed that locals often wear shirts with English slogans on that either a) don’t make any sense or b) are just downright offensive.
It always makes us think: ‘Who the hell is making these clothes?’ and ‘Do they understand what it says/should we tell them?’
And then we remember that we’re terrible people so just chuckle and move on.
Luckily there’s someone meaner than us in the form of the Shanghai Observed Instagram account, who goes as far as to document and share these murky mishaps.
The account owner wanted to share the ridiculous things they come across living in China, and we’re sure glad they did.
Here are some of our fave questionable garments.
We actually quite want this tee shirt
Just in case you were wondering
To be fair, she may well know what this says
We honestly don’t understand how or why this tee was ever made
Oh, babe, same
Some would say this is the perfect tee to wear to a disciplinary meeting at work
She looks way too nice to be wearing this on purpose
We’ve all been there
Everyone expresses their anger in different ways
Instagram user @balln.fanclub asks a very valid question in the comments on one of the pics: ‘Is there like an English speaking conspiracy label selling cuss fashion in China purely for comic relief?’
I mean, sure seems like it, mate.
And long may it continue.
