English T-Shirts In Asia (20+ Pics)

One of the great things about the world we live in is the rich and diverse variety of languages that you can find across the globe. The only problem is that, as you can see from these pictures, sometimes these languages don't quite translate...

In homage to hilarious translation fails, we has compiled this list of t-shirts from East Asia that don't quite say what they should ("Texas state it's a triangle OMG so hipster triangle", for example). Some of them don't say anything at all (well, not unless "temmby woroing terrislylastly" means anything to anyone?). But while all of them may have failed as far as translation is concerned, they have all definitely succeeded in making us laugh. Hard.

Seen any brilliant t-shirt translations that we might have missed? Then add to them to the list below and don't forget to vote for your favorite!
