Right now, I am drinking God, yet another weirdly-named product from Japan (I'm sure there's a website out there that chronicles goofy Japanese product names.) More specifically, I'm drinking God Mocha. What a weird name. But it's tasty.
I would have love to have seen a can of that on the set of the DaVinci Code!
I can't bring myself to say, "I'm drinking GOD." I feel blasphemous.
Jesus, this GOD is refreshing!
I wonder if anyone in the world has said that while drinking this. I forgot to purchase a can today--I'll do that tomorrow.
Hi, MJ! How funny!
And one website you might like is www.Engrish.com -- it lists 9with photos) all kinds of funny Asian English, including goofy product names.
Random thought: once I found some South African candies with the brand name "Droolers." Maybe some things just don't translate well into English from Afrikaans...
Yeah, I know about Engrish.com. I'm sure they have Calpis over there--popular drink with a weird name.
