Witty Chinglish

Well, I often joke about speaking "Chinglish" since my day to day life is usually carried out in a peculiar mixture of Chinese and English, but here, my friends, is a great example of Chinglish, which I spotted in Hong Kong, not suprising since there is such a mixutres of language and cultures there.


Now the great thing about this for those of you who don't read Chinese is that the Chinese character there is pronounced "Fan" thus forming the word Fantastic. Even cooler is that the word "fan" in Chinese means rice, and is sometimes used for food in general. This is particularly appropriate since they're advertising a buger that replaces the bread with rice patties (not to be confused with paddies).
