Love Bags, Shanghai

I was scrolling briefly through some photos from Shanghai earlier this evening for another project when I came across this one, a store front whose sign reads, Love: To Create a Still Life of Goods. Can anyone tell me what the hell that’s supposed to mean?

Chinglish has always baffled me. With a population of nearly 1.4 billion, you’d think finding a handful with a decent grip of the English language wouldn’t be too difficult. Yet we still come across countless examples such as these.

Maybe they do it on purpose. Or simply don’t care.

For the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,224th straight, was snapped in Shanghai, China, on 21 May 2010.
