Weekly Photo Challenge: "Slogan"

This week for Glenn and Dave's Weekly Photo Challenge, the topic ("randomly" selected from the dictionary by Dave) is "slogan."

Both of the pictures below were taken just down the street from my place here in Miyazaki. The first, of a sign outside a dispensing optician's, features some rather tortured English. The second, of a sign outside a local restaurant/coffee shop, features a somewhat interesting choice of words. Click images to enlarge.

The first pic features the kind of thing that I see (and hear) here so often that I barely notice it any more. (If you like this sort of stuff, there's a ton of it over here.)

WITH YOUR DAILY SCENE
Glasses are useful at every your daily scene.


I really like the slogan in the pic below. The English is OK, but the word "booze" jumps right out at me, beckoning to me in some kind of secret code. If you like "booze" then this is the place for you. Only "boozers" allowed. Let's "booze" it up! Welcome sir, what kind of "booze" would you like with your meal? Why, I'm not sure... what kind of "booze" do you have? Allow me to bring you the "booze" menu, sir. We have a fine selection of "booze" from all over the world! Mmmm.... "booze"...

GOOD SELECTED COFFEE BOOZE AND FOOD

  1. This second one features one of my favorite words ever! Booze. One of my other favorties: Broad. To mean a woman.

    Love these!

  2. How can you ever get tired of Japlish?

  3. I'm curious to know whether there is another floor above the glassed area. If not, it is a bloody strange design for a building. I like Japlish (Dave cracks me up) too.

    Candy Sue - how about "Booze and Broads" as a name for a bar.

  4. Are the Japanese perhaps going one up on Caffe Lattes and Irish Coffees?

    "Good selected coffee. booze, broads, and food": a shop like that would probably lead me to divorce, alcoholism, poverty, homelessness, etc. But what a ride it would be!

    Dave,
    I'm sometimes still impressed by "creative" uses of English over here, but when you've got a couple of hundred students who use it daily it starts to wear a bit thin.

    Firehorse,
    As far as I know, the seating area in the pic is the top floor. My suspicion is that the arrangement with the window, etc. was some kind of after-the-fact re-modeling.

    AV,
    That's an interesting thought. Personally, I think lattes could be improved by removing the milk. Irish coffee? Well, clearly this shop has the necessary ingredients!
