Funny Words in Shanghai
Funny thing about how English words are randomly put together for slogans, on T-shirts, on notebooks. Or words that perhaps someone thinks capture the essence of the product/service. We walked by a spa called “Oddness.” And a club called “Richy.” I bought a notebook that reads on the cover, “Summer Fantasy: In the hot summer, have a cool, cool excited to get food stupor, after all is a particularly good thing.” Rachel and I surmise that it’s probably just like how Americans get tattoos of random Chinese characters that mean nonsense out of context. Pretty hilarious though.
