Here’s the latest installment in my English T-shirts in Japan series. This one is modelled by a ten-year-old boyÂ in one of my English classes. I really don’t know what theÂ messageÂ is here. Do you? Does anybody?
What were the designers thinking? In fact, what was the mother thinking when she bought this T-shirt? Perhaps this is how it happened…
Designer:Â Okay, I’ll draw aÂ scary dragon and add some random English phrases from Fox News. Perfect!
Retailer: Nice! A scary dragon with lots of English. We’ll sell these no problem!
Mother: Great! AÂ scary dragonÂ andÂ some English!Â My son will love it!
Son: Woah! AÂ mad dragon and some wicked cool graffiti!
Me: Hey, nice dragon. What does that say? Hang on, let me see…
Eye-catching fashion with fear plucking at one’s heart. Horror of potential terrorist acts involving biological weapons.
