Can You Translate Engrish Properly?

In the 2000 American version of “Godzilla”, the big lizard got his name from a misnomer of the words “Go-Jira”.  In the movie they were trying to make the point that it may be a bit difficult to translate from Japanese to English.  However, they never made the point that sometimes it might be hard there other way around.  Here’s a visual tribute to the ineptitude of the translation skills of the land of the rising sun and other Asian countries.  (For some reason, images on this list keep intermittently glitching, doubling up or disappearing. Rest assured that I’m constantly rectifying this issue, so if you encounter it, it should be fixed within the hour or so..)
