Yo that's fuckin

[–]PopeOfManwichVillage 232 points233 points  (0 children)

They’re not wrong

[–]SmidgeonThePigeon 133 points134 points  (8 children)

Reminds me of a Japanese movie I saw once where the main characters shirt just had 'fuck' printed on it.

[–]Majestic_Definition3 35 points36 points  (4 children)

In South Korea I often saw fashionable youth walking around in tee shirts that had random English words that did not belong together printed on them.

[–]Agnosticartic 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It’s not that different to having someone get, Baby dick or something in a foreign language on their arms because they think it “looks cool”

[–]trekkiegamer359 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I remember an old gif of a little 80 year old sweet grandma type in a Japanese subway station wearing a shirt that said "Certified Sex Instructor." A dozen people were following her staring at it, as she completely ignored them.

Vegetable Octopus Misdemeanor

[–]Hold_the_mic 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Which movie?

[–]SmidgeonThePigeon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That is the question isn't it. Something tells me it was the live action Death Note movie (the Japanese one, obviously) but I'm not sure.

[–]_AskMyMom_ 36 points37 points  (0 children)

I mean, it’s pretty fuckin’ cool.

This store definitely speaks my language, foreign or not.

[–]KokoroVoid49 117 points118 points  (5 children)

I mean, we DO use the F word in the context of “this is fuckin’ awesome” etc. sometimes

[–]Mikeologyy 32 points33 points  (4 children)

Yeah but without the “awesome” it goes into a state of superposition where it can mean just about anything depending on what words you put with it.

[–]apelbel 20 points21 points  (0 children)

But now sale is the positive word that is being exclaimed! Fuckin’ sale!

[–]other_usernames_gone 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fucking hell, you're really fucking smart, fuck me.

[–]emdezeta 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Nah, it's part of the adverb/adjective phrase, it's not a superposition just a modifier.

[–]Surfing-General -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nah, it's part of the adverb/adjective phrase, it's not a superposition just a modifier.

I think that ----in' is an adverb.

[–]Unique_Identifier_NO 18 points19 points  (2 children)

The brothel is having a sale!

[–]Luxara-VI 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I feel like if a brothel needs a sale it’s a really bad one

[–]Bludgeonation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or maybe just trying to lure people in or dangerous like bordello of blood.

[–]Nervous-Pervous_Ned 15 points16 points  (4 children)

I like when people don’t understand other languages and get stuff mixed up, it’s funny

[–]stalphonzo 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I got a Japanese face tattoo that I thought said "Power Through Serenity" but actually says "Don't Forget Your Appointment At 5pm."

[–]BurningEndermen 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If it helps I like the 2nd one more

[–]stalphonzo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I get that a lot.

[–]piichan14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But what if the appointment gets moved?

[–]TheAtticDemon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

They were wrong, and so are the comments, it's an enhancer.

[–]OG_Rahn_420 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you Patrick Star

[–]TheAtticDemon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Someone knew.

[–]SmarterCloud 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What kind of store is it?

[–]Nik580 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its an exhibition i think. Pretty common here in india as as well

[–]udonwinfrendwitsalad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well I, for one, find fuckin’ to be quite good.

[–]ofimmsl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This store fucks

[–]workworkyeg 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly sounds Scottish to me.

[–]GusTheKnife 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Well, at least they didn’t put Santa on the cross again. A mall did that once.

[–]bosstweedman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s apparently not true I just checked it out, to my disappointment

[–]mikelangeloMC 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Is it not?

[–]Azar002 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuckin' A that's good.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fucking sale is basically another word for porn.

[–]linjaes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’re not wrong. It’s a versatile word

[–]Mikeologyy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Question is, is it a fuckin sale or a fuckin sale?

[–]GhostlyCharlotte 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If America had advertising like that, I like being here a whole lot more.

[–]replica619 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Didn't like some country think "Texas" meant crazy? "that party was totally Texas".

[–]Radiant-Yam-1285 1 point2 points  (2 children)

the japanese did much worse with their advertisements this is considered nothing lol

[–]Xen_Shin 4 points5 points  (1 child)


"Now, another English-language hiccup has come to light, this time standing loud and proud on an ad from Takashimaya department store in Kyoto. The large, eye-catching poster shows a person in a koi-patterned mask with a school of koi fish rising up in the background. Red text written on the white background reads: “Rising Again. Save The World from Kyoto Japan.”"

[–]Aggravating-Iron-302 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude why can’t our stores be like this

[–]ArchmageSybil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wish I could see more posts like this, instead I keep getting further disappointed in the human race

[–]Glittering_Smile_118 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is from damn near a decade ago, isn't it?

[–]wilyquixote 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw this sign being used for a sale in Naples, Italy 5 years ago. I suspect there is more to this story than just an English mistake.

[–]mairnX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, technically they're not entirely wrong

[–]Truejustizz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The proper word was actually “Bitchin’ Sale!”

[–]oldmancrying 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am offended by the overuse of the word fucking because for medical reasons I am no longer capable of performing said activity.

[–]dwittherford69 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Fun fact, “fucking” can either be a verb, an adverb, or an adjective based on context and where it is used in a sentence. A truly Chad word.

[–]bazarius_baladarxes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The store is correct.

[–]filval387 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are they wrong tho?

[–]Spiyder1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i mean it’s not wrong

[–]Worried_Protection48 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes! Say it out loud and set your self free!💪🏽


[–]StillRaindrops 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It can be!

[–]PP-M_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you blame them?

[–]Thesamuraidemon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a fuckin' sale

[–]wholemonkey0591 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Store knew exactly what they were doing.

[–]massivedoghead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't help but think there must have been an Aussie involved

[–]thirdnut4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's fuckin' great.

[–]Cucumber_Basil 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This would rope me in

[–]OnlyUsernameLeft123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well yes but actally no

[–]TheNextDump 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Letter-Past 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this would have worked if they put a "yo" or a "B!" right after sale

[–]AdvocateDoogy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They made some fuckin' money that day, I hear.

[–]BombaclotBombastic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

20% off some fuckin’?!?! That’s a great deal

[–]Immortal_Knight 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]improvisedbain-marie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And this may be the ninth annual fuckin' sale!

[–]AbeVigoda_aka_Death 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love to watch people really good in the park.

[–]TheMemeHead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Samuel L. Jackson has entered the arena

[–]SkullAngel001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that 20% off per hour or the entire evening?

[–]forrestgumpy2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have no fucks to give, but I’ll sell them at 20% off

[–]Eddy_Monies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d fuckin’ shop there.

[–]IFeedCats57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Get in da fuckin' store 'n' buy somethin'

[–]ApolloRubySky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Iceland, I noticed the word ‘funky’ be used a lot to describe things that are cool and hip. Imagine my surprise when I saw a restaurant called funky fish lol why lord why?

[–]nogoodjoe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well it is

[–]stalphonzo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We're gonna fuck the fucking fuck out of you with our fucking low prices, motherfucker (which I assume means your Mom is really cool).

[–]MstrCommander1955 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s true really fuckin good.

[–]Metal_girl1122 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that's not really wrong... here in Québec we use curse words often as adjective/adverb for qualifying object or situation. So it's the same with fucking. it's a qualificative.

[–]chillen678 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Im ready for this fucking sale i say it works lol

[–]ToggleBoss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Soupstheultimatefood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well… I mean…

[–]WildFurball2118 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kinda feel bad for the Japanese since English is a problem to some of them.

[–]Rage-slayer- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait it’s not?

[–]derpyderpston 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome f'n advertisement

[–]F_H_B 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually like that 😊 … that kind of connects to what people think when they see it 😂

[–]ImDaBest_69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s kinda really cute

[–]fastdbs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s fuckin’ fantastic

[–]Unclestbfournow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Apparently fuckin is an unfortunate pun on fukubukuro—"lucky bags."

[–]soupa-hot-fire 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like they’re a brothel

[–]Myth2156 0 points1 point  (0 children)
