Hanzi Smatter

by , under Art, Brain Food

My friend Lori’s site pointed me in the direction of this: Hanzi Smatter is a site that looks at Chinese or Japanese language characters that Americans have adopted as logos or tattoos and analyzes what they really mean. Which is often not at all what the American intended it to mean.

Sort of their revenge for all the “Engrish” sites that make fun of non-English speakers use of English words.
