Horrible English and Chinese

I have seen a few items made in China or Taiwan that have horrible English on them. The same thing happens with Chinese. It's popular to get Chinese Tattoos in the US, and this site http://www.hanzismatter.com/ has examples of bad use of Chinese. One web site just put some Chinese characters on it because it looked nice! The NY Times had an article with some examples of bad Chinese Tattoos last year. The NY Times story mentions one clinic that removes about 5-6 Chinese tattoos per week because they meant something different than intended.
