American tourist goes to Japan, snaps hilarious photos of poorly translated t-shirts

English is one of the toughest languages to master. Our nuances, homophones, and technical terms; these can all be confusing to a non-native speaker. Despite this fact, a lot of Asian countries still want to buy and purchase popular, Westernized-style clothing. That’s where the fun comes in. The following few pictures show 13 examples of what happens when Asian translations go horribly— and hilariously— wrong.

And they don’t just mean ’round.’ They mean ‘SO round.’

Honestly, this one was fairly decipherable until I hit the random ‘more than.’

Eat My Story

Well, that sounds inappropriate…

I can’t even begin to imagine what this one is trying to say…

Fart Sexy Style

It’s not often you see ‘fart’ and ‘sexy’ in the same sentence.

Alright, so compared to the others this one isn’t all that bad— but a quick Google search could have easily remedied this problem.

I’m actually not positive this one was a mistranslation…

While there are many English words that contain a double-P, ‘Ppotagonist’ is not one of them.


Flower Aroma Tour, a festival of love.

Are You Trking The

Well, are you?

In this case, special means something just a bit different than one would assume…

A bit dark and a bit twisted. But this is another one that a quick Google search could have saved.

Crap Your Hands

Last, but certainly not least, crap your hands and make some noise for the number one mistranslation on our list!
