Chinglish Library

Posted on December 4, 2011


I wish this photo were a little better but it was hard to get any contrast while zooming in on this sign behind the cash register at our local export supermarket.

It reads: Cigarette, Wine, library can not be discounted.  Wouldn’t kids be much more interested in hanging out at the library if it also included a cigarette and wine section?  Although I’m not sure anyone would want to use cigarettes and wine that had been borrowed by someone else and returned.

There’s nothing wrong with this sign; it just struck me as refreshingly polite.
