Best Mangled English of the Year So Far

Courtesy of Nick Elwood, of the blog "Bathhouse Ballads"

Electric Rice Cooker...
and cum warmer.

If you're into that kinky stuff. (as Nick says: don't forget to wash it out after)

Did this make the rounds while I was on my honeymoon, or is it as hilarious to you as it is to me?

Any other submissions for best mangled English of 2010, so far?

Actually, that would be fine if it had hyphens in it-- "rice cooker-cum-warmer":

This is one of my favorites ever. Right up there with the Rice-Tard a while back.

Ricetard was a great one, but I don't like the way the word has been used by some to mean "stupid asian" or as an adjective meaning "typical of a stupid asian" - "That English t-shirt is ricetarded" or "some ricetard almost hit my while running a red light"

Roboseyo said...

and there's me being a "maple syruptard" - it should read "almost hit ME while running a red light"

that usage of the word "ricetard" sounds to me like a racist slur, and it's let me to avoid using the word.
