Something Different All Right

Yesterday Kelly and I were browsing in a Japantown shop that I think was called "Something Different!" It mainly sells Japanese knickknacks with nonsensical English translations -- if translations appear at all.

I especially enjoyed a chopstick set emblazoned with the phrase "I LIKE WHITE CAKE!" The best part, Kelly noted, was the name of the manufacturer: Lube Sheep. I sincerely hope they just chose the name by picking two random words from an English dictionary -- and that it isn't meant as instructions for lonely farmers.
