    F**k you, pay me': Parents buy kids clothes printed with swear words because they don't understand English
    Consumers in Asia are being sold clothing with offensive phrases on them - but they have no idea because they don't speak English

    Off-colour clothing: People in Asia are wearing T-shirts with offensive English words printed on them and they don't seem to have a clue
    Parents are snapping up clothing for their kids covered in inappropriate language - because they don't understand what it says.

    The clothing, shown here with sayings like, "$ex for money" and "too drunk to f***", are being worn by children as young as eight in Asia because they can't read the English.

    Slogan shopper: The dress wearer is seemingly oblivious to the message on her pretty pink dress

    Blue language: From the offensive to the blasphemous, but this little boy has no idea
    According to Shanghaiist, the garments have caused a debate after someone took pictures of them in a mall in Luoyang, Henan in China and circulated them online.

    A man identified only as Mr Guo said that he picked out a baseball cap emblazoned with the words 'F*** you pay me' for his son, but his son refused it because he knew the meaning.

    Too young: This little boy smiles in his 'wake up m***********', while this little girl has no idea what her top says

    Family matters: It's not just little ones - adults are being conned too, because they don't speak English
    The retail assistant in the shop also had no idea of the meaning.

    There are also dresses saying 'i am a whore', sweaters reading 'who the f*** is Jesus?' and most disturbingly little girls' pink T-shirts reading 'jail bait.

    Obscene messages: the consumer protections in China mean that these people should not be sold vulgar items


    BossOfGuns / Imgur [​IMG]
    Worrying tend: A little girl in a 'touch me now' top is not only worrying, it's growing more common
    These are broadly thought to be against China's Consumer Protection law, which dictates that costumers are 'entitled to be treated with dignity'.

    They are allowed by law to return items if they find they contain swear words or vulgar phrases.

    They've probably been printing "This product is absolute shit" on the stuff they sell to us.

    :rofl:

    Jail bait on a kid's size shirt is cracking me up.

    And if you walk through Detroit or Bed-Stuy you probably see the same shit.


    Other than being 100% hilarious, I don't get why this is news.

    The girl with the I am a Whore one is great.
    You know that these shirts were made by some guy walking around with a Chinese character tattoo that he thought said something cool and got laughed at in a Chinese restaurant one night.

    I remember being in Beijing in the late 90's. There were wall-to-wall U.S. CEO's all lining up to cash in on the billion person market opening up.

    But in the streets things were strange. The regular Chinese citizens were puzzled as to how to respond to these Western visitors suddenly popping up on their streets.

    You could buy historical artifacts on the street for chump change; rare jade pieces, silver gold etc. (Chinese government has since outlawed that)

    The tourist sites though were a complete hustle. They'd grab you, throw you in chair and hand-carry you around the monuments until you coughed up some cash. I met two 8-year-old boys at the Great Wall. They knew enough English to offer to guide along the wall.

    They seemed very nice and pleasant right up until they demanded payment for their services. I was happy to give them some bread, but they demanded more.

    I got pissed and walked away but they followed me for about a quarter mile demanding more money. When I got to the beginning of the Wall where police were, the kids scurried away.

    I imagine Beijing is pretty much the same. Shanghai, however, is like New York.
