signs


Yours Furniture

Your's Furniture


This is incorrect because “your” is already a possessive pronoun, and there’s no point in adding another apostrophe+s.

It has been brought to my attention that “Your” could be somebody’s last name. That would be unlikely, however, especially considering this photo was taken in an Asian-dominated district of LA.


Emperor Taste Restaurant

Emperor Taste Restaurant


The restaurant does not taste like emperors.

They are trying to convey that the restaurant’s foods have taste “worthy of an emperor”, or “fit for an emperor”.


We sell QUALITY

We sell QUALITY


They’re not selling quality — the products they sell are quality products. You can’t sell somebody the quality of “quality”, I’m sorry.


We Sell Banner

We Sell Banner


They sell “banners” — plural.


We Go Clinic

We Go Clinic


… what?


Convenient Store

Convenient Store


It’s a convenience store. Convenience stores are indeed convenient, but we call them “convenience stores”. It also seems to be a rather uncreative name for a convenience store: “Convenient Store”.

This store you’ve probably seen a hundred times because it’s in Arcadia, and everybody who did this EC probably took a picture of it, haha.



I actually took many more photos than this; see the photobucket gallery I uploaded them to:

Photoblogging 02 [“a pleasant meal”]

November 3rd, 2009

Sunday, November 1st, 2009. What a pleasant morning it was. I skipped violin class because I had three long, important essays, a speech+presentation that I had to present in front of the entire class, and one extra-credit miniproject to do, all for my English Honors class.

The mini-project involved taking pictures of “grammatically incorrect” or “racially incorrect” signs. Of course, I’m not the photographer-type, so I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about this project, but it turned out extremely fun.

My dad is (well, was) an awesome photography fanatic, so he let me use his $1000+ professional-looking camera with his several-hundred-dollar ultrasonic long-range lens.

Originally I planned on driving to Chinatown and Little Tokyo in downtown LA, but my dad told me that there was lots of bad English around Alhambra, San Gabriel, and Rosemead. So basically, that explains the all the sudden photoblogging.

Contrary to the title, there are no photos of food in this post. Sorry to disappoint.

Your's Furniture

"Your's Furniture"

Totally compelling name.

Totally need to go visit that store sometime. Well, actually, on second thought I dont care about Japanese games.

No, that wasn’t really grammatically incorrect, and I’m not using it for one of my “signs”.

I dont know. Randomness rules.
