Sightings of Unusual English Arrangements

Examples of unusual arrangements of English I have come across throughout my time in China, and a few from past years in South Korea.

I always stress that I highlight these creations not to mock them but to bask in them. I appreciate their existence in the same way as encountering something striking in nature. These outcroppings of a global consumer society are something that past peoples didn’t get to enjoy and future ones may well not either. They are to be celebrated!
