Is JAPA DOG’s Engrish Deliberate?


The Vancouver hot dog stand with a sometimes 2 hour line up has a website with some seriously funny spelling mistakes on it.

The company, which calls itself a Japanese Consulting Corporation, says they might be closed 3 days a month depending on “whether”.  They also call Kurobuta the “Kobe beef” of pork, and their Recruit page is kinda hirarious.

Are they playing the Japanese Engrish card to the max, or can they just not spell?  I think it’s a viral marketing strategy, but sometimes I’m stubbornly naive.
