ASEAN Hive Community's 🤣 #Engrish Challenge Week #2 🙌 Celebrating English Language Failures

in ASEAN Hivelast month


Greetings Hivers, @JustinParke here. The ASEAN Hive Community #Engrish Challenge is the newest and most fun challenge on Hive, and a celebration of when English goes beautifully wrong.

What Is #Engrish?

#Engrish from ESL Homework, Cambodia

     If your not familiar with the word "Engrish," it is a term used for the misspelling or misuse of the English language by native speakers of Asian languages.

     Although the ASEAN Hive Community is focused on Southeast Asian content, this challenge is open to all Hivers who find Engrish anywhere on spaceship Earth.

     Whether it be a menu, clothing, or even public advertisements, Engrish is everywhere if you look for it, even in native-English speaking countries where public schools have failed.

     I would love to see the Engrish around you, so get out your camera and get snapping. The more Engrish you can find, the better, and I'm a sucker for a story, so tell me the who, when, where, why, and how of your Engrish expedition.

Last Week's Winners

     There was only one submission, so it was an easy win for @straykat. I have decided to give her the 2nd and 3rd place prizes as well, so she wins a total of 3 HIVE and is 30% beneficiary of this post.
     Her post perfectly captured the idea I was aiming for with this challenge, and I think it will serve as a demo for future challenges.

I wish more people would join this time! Thanks for the prizes @JustinParke!

I have a little time this week to spend spread the word and promote this challenge in Discord and other places. Thanks for participating, your first entry was quite a splash. !ENGAGE 10

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

Oh I really like this contest. I remember we used to call water lily as a gun flower as in Vietnamese it's called "hoa súng" and súng is a gun😝

Sometimes things get lost in translation, and I love it when names like this are directly translated to English. In Khmer, the a showerhead is called a "lotus pod," so when you go to a parts store, you have to ask where the "lotus pods" are.

I once saw a shop translate it to English like this instead of calling it a showerhead, very cute and funny mistake. I'd love to see an entry #Engrish entry from you if find time. Thanks for stopping by. !ENGAGE 15

haha, I like this #Engrish, and will collect some from Vietnam and input soon. Thank you, dear 🥂

There has already been too much ENGAGE today.
