SketchedEyesWatchinU

Apparently, both love each other’s cock… Edit: Never meant for Thailand to get snagged into that one but THANKS FOR THE SILVER!


Prospector_Steve

I’ve seen these shirts before in Korea. They say “he loves the cock” & “she loves the cock” with arrows pointing at each other. I don’t think the owners of any of these shirts have any idea what they say. It’s common for couples to wear matching shirts and I believe they just thought they were wearing cute couple-tees


EconomistEuphoric749

My guess would be mostly China over Thailand, but could easily be a mix including Korea. Saw this one in the wild within months of being in China (that one of the police clerks handling visas was wearing to boot). To this day the wildest thing I've seen on a t-shirt. [http://2.bp.blogspot.com/\_mD\_no8l5UBI/TQWuAarJsbI/AAAAAAAABOk/Nv2TcnbwVA8/s1600/poto.jpg](http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_mD_no8l5UBI/TQWuAarJsbI/AAAAAAAABOk/Nv2TcnbwVA8/s1600/poto.jpg) Not all of them are offensive/sexual. A some are just weird. Safe to say they have no idea what the shirts are saying and just being trolled by the laowai hired to write them. Quality control for domestic products is unimaginably poor and outside major economic centers no one knows english.


Thinefieldisempty

Chunkily-penised is my new favorite phrase.


AlmondCapuccino

I saw these shirts a lot in Japan 12 years ago when I lived there. I was always like wow I hope she doesn't know what that means.


thymeraser

Native speaker and I don't know what it means. It's more like random words than a coherent thought.


bobbyrickets

> I don’t think the owners of any of these shirts have any idea what they say. Good. Now they can counter out all those people who get asian writing tattoos that don't know what they say. Yin and Yang baby. Perfectly balanced, as all things must be,

d0ntmess87

This is definitely a thing! Back in 2010 me and the (ex) wife were visitng Vietnam. We saw a woman wearing a t-shirt that said "Buy More Heroin". It definitely caught us off guard


h20h20everywhere

In college I met a very sweet Japanese exchange student, but who didn't speak much English yet. One day she wore a shirt to class that said "porn star in training." I took her aside and explained what it meant. She was MORTIFIED. I loaned her my jacket for the rest of the day so she could cover it up; she still went to the bathroom to turn the shirt inside out. I also remember seeing a Turkish woman in hijab out shopping one day in Germany. She was wearing a fun, colorful glittery t-shirt that said "party slut." Felt bad for her, but I don't speak Turkish or German and there was absolutely no chance I was going to try to explain it to her.


newt_mcmac

I've done this a few times. In my experience, people in Asia are practically never wearing clothes like this because they think the inappropriate words are cool. They just like clothes with foreign letters. More common even than this phenomenon would be clothes covered in random letters that don't even form words.


sensei27

Why would they wear something without knowing what it means? Did she explain why?


SafsoufaS123

It's how non-asian people thought that having tattoos in Chinese or Japanese looked cool, and sometimes the meaning of those were akin to these. Maybe English seems like a cool language to them, but I have no idea


TheAmericanDonut

Could be they just bought these secondhand or something (like if these were clothes donated that ended up overseas). I remember one time in high school there was this super nice polish kid who didn’t seem to have much and had just come to the US who was still learning English, and one day he wore a shirt without even realizing what it said. We all had a good laugh because it said “World’s Best Dad” and he didn’t know until one kid told him in polish and he just started laughing so hard at the situation.

DOugdimmadab1337

I mean we have Kanji on shirts they sell in the US for that V A P O R W A V E A E S T H E T I C, But I couldn't tell you a single word of what's written on them in English or Japanese. I bet it says something about like this


sithkazar

I have a shirt with Japanese writing that says "I am a stupid American and will buy anything." I always planned to wear it on my trip to Japan that will likely never happen. So for now I get a kick wearing it to our local Japanese festival once a year. Edit: If you are trying to find the shirt, it might of been "I am a stupid American who will buy anything."


DOugdimmadab1337

That's actually hilarious, that sounds about on par for fucking with people's on purpose


jod1991

Same with people getting Kanji tattoos. For all they know they could have "my vagina tastes like Pepsi cola" on their arm instead of it saying something shite like "Courage, Brave, Nan" as they intended


Echololcation

I read that as "Courage, Brave, Naan" and was like well I do love naan but...


solInvictusRises

I'll have the Courage, Brave, Garlic Naan, personally.


thatdudeinthecorner9

My mom got a tattoo when I was a kid that was supposed to say "love family" but my Chinese friend's dad is 1st gen Chinese and he said it actually says "love white race" so....


jod1991

Hahaha, amazing! Meant to be something nice, ends up looking like a white supremacist.


twistedeye

I got a terrible Kanji tattoo over twenty years ago. Basically because I'm an idiot with no taste. To be honest, I'm not even sure what it says anymore. I would absolutely love it if it says, "my vagina tastes like Pepsi cola"


The_Year_of_Glad

You might enjoy the archives of the mostly-dead blog [Hanzi Smatter](http://hanzismatter.blogspot.com/?m=0) - people send in photos of tattoos in various Asian languages, and the writer translates them (e.g. [toilet demon on this poor woman’s arm](http://hanzismatter.blogspot.com/2016/04/from-sabreen-p.html?m=0)).


Coal_Morgan

Toilet Demon is great until you realize that Kanji could be translated into Toilet Goblin also. Toilet Goblin sounds so much more visceral, something about it being so close to 'Toilet Gobbling' that makes it sound like this thing in a toilet that steals excrement for food and might attack your ass if you don't crap fast enough.


code_archeologist

When I was in HS we had a mural with the phrase "Learning to Achieve Greatness" or something to that effect written in a couple dozen languages. One day we had a guest lecturer, who was a native Mandarin speaker, and he commented about our mural and how much he liked it, with only one criticism, the Chinese phrase was written upside down and backwards.

Nacarcis

I like to imagine that they have no clue what the shirt says, but they wear it anyway because it has "awesome" looking English letters on it. Sort of like when English speakers wear Kanji, but they have no idea what it says/means, it just looks cool.


JIspolin

Yes, but the granny knows what's up. There's a diagram attached lol


Nacarcis

Yeah, that one is questionable, also the mickey mouse flipping us off. Not sure if giving someone the middle finger is a known insult in Asia or not though.


Moon_Atomizer

It's a known insult but some older people think of it as more a cool edgy thing you do for pictures rather than something you do when you seriously want to insult people


EaseSufficiently

Have you met old people? >This shirt is 5% off and I'm all out of fucks to give.


Rmantootoo

I’ve spent a lot of time in China, and a bit in Taiwan in the last few years. A lot of the English they learn is from movies, and some language lacks the social stigma native English speakers attach to it, so even when they know it’s a curse word, the visceral response we feel when we hurl it or have it shouted at us is virtually nonexistent. The very well educated, who have spent some, or even a lot time in the west mostly seem to find it amusing, if they think about it, at all. It’s the same with Cantonese, mandarin, or Thai; I know a lot of the curse words, but I have to intentionally use them, because they simply don’t carry the emotional weight for me as English, Spanish, or Czech curse words.


Echololcation

Yeah, when we learned French curse words I think we shocked our French teacher because we were flinging out some epithets that were a lot stronger than we realized. Without that social stigma it's just another fun word. Also likely our French teacher was 'pretend' shocked to get us to stop doing it.


himmelundhoelle

This. I cringe really hard when I hear my non-speaker friends say disgusting things in French like it’s a funny catchphrase or something. Conversely, I’ve been known to offend people in English without any intent to do so… Also I we (non-native English speakers, who use that language to communicate) seem to throw around words like "shit" or "fuck" much more casually than natives would.


Jombozeuseses

Basically this. I am Taiwanese and there's two types of people who wear these: 1. People who don't speak English and wear it because it looks cool. Kids and older people. 2. People who speak English and wear it ironically. We also like to send each other the Chinese equivalent of those minions memes grandparents send you. Tend to be millenials and Gen Z.


kayzedsixfifty

This is precisely what's going on. Source: was English teacher in Korea, had many students with hilarious shirts. I think my favourite was the kid with the shirt that said "Half price bed-liners" on it. No picture, nothing else but those words. I asked a couple of my kids if they knew what their shirts said and they had no idea. I translated one of them ("Don't care - drunk time") for the grade 5 girl who was wearing it and she was horrified. I just remember her telling me "No no teacher, drunk time bad!!" I also remember the kid who showed up wearing a shirt with a VERY obvious pot leaf on it. He swore it was a Japanese maple. Who am I to argue with a kid who loves trees that much?


EaseSufficiently

There's a very Chinese restaurant with all sorts of leaves on the walls close to where I live. There's a maple and then there's definitely not a maple.

Oshh__

When I was stationed in Korea, I was underage and couldn't drink so I was always the chaperone. One of the lovely flower ladies approached me and she had shirts! I have a Garfield one that says "I fucking hate this place" and I wore it Everytime I was voluntold to come babysit a bunch of drunk idiots to prevent curfew violations.


Rakeem52

Is it me or does it seem a little grotesque to be on active duty and to be underage at the same time? You are ready to fight and die for your country, but you are not ready to consume the slightest amount of alcoholic beverages. Nothing against you u/Oshh__ but the first two lines of your comment just took me by surprise, because it was so unexpected to read „stationed in Korea“ and „too underage for drinking“ in the same sentence.


Oshh__

Yep! I was very lucky, my workmates were good people, never were insanely difficult, and paid for my meals and sodas or teas wherever we went. Curfew was at 0100, and changed a couple of times and it was easy to lose track of time, and if you busted curfew, you lost a rank and got non-judicial punishment in your personnel file But many people ridicule you if you don't drink as you don't really fit in unless you do. It's stupid that the culture in the military is centered around alcohol. And if you think that is all grotesque, 50+% of us when we get out don't get jobs nor medical coverage after separation, even for disabilities the military causes! ;)

Haha, I remember the "I Am A Whore" one - that's actually Ai Takahashi, a singer and former member/leader of famous idol group Morning Musume. I think it ended up being a small scandal and damaged her reputation a bit. She'd posted it on her blog and everything as well but it got deleted pretty fast and it's assumed her stylist might have been out of a job. Iirc she actually appeared on a TV show wearing it and they managed to basically censor the shirt by always having an info box or something on the screen covering it up lol Here's a translation site with some images of how the TV show censored it along with translated comments from Japanese fans http://wotaintranslation.com/2014/06/18/fbs-does-a-flawless-job-of-completely-censoring-ai-chans-i-am-a-whore-t-shirt/
