Unfortunately Named Japanese Department Store Concessions #71

I don't know whether I should expect Japanese firms to check on the connotations of the English words they pick to name their businesses, but I do remember that car companies spend a lot of time now ensuring that their cars are dubbed with entirely fabricated names lest they accidentally call a car "shit-bucket" in Estonian or something. Perhaps these guys could have done a little more research...

  1. I saw this last weekend! I couldn't believe it. I thought, maybe I made a crude mistake but sure enough that's what it said. Amazing!
