Two T-shirts

One of the best things about Japan is the t-shirts. Covered in nonsensical english seemingly picked at random from some strange database of english words-"fresh" is well-liked as are "sweet,"heaven," and "pressurefull"-the shirts make my days a little better. Yesterday I saw one that made good used of punctuation it said, "cheeseburger... cheeseburger? cheeseburger!." I would wear that! Also heard from another ALT that one of her teachers wore a shirt to school that said simply and yet somewhat mysteriously, "fucking." Japan... Japan? Japan!

Shirts in Costa Rica cracked me up, too. There's a ton of Ropa Americana stores that have rejected/donated U.S. thrift store clothes. They were the cheapest stores, so people would buy shirts that had phrases they probably wouldn't wear if they knew what they said. My favorite was seeing a tough campesino wearing a black shirt with hot pink lettering that said, "lordy lordy, vanessa's 40!"
