Japglish of the Week

A selection of humorous student attempts at writing given phrases in English from a Japanese prompt. The topic was, “What is your hobby?” doing tramps (Funny, that used to be my favorite activity in college too!)

rock crimming (At least you didn’t write, “rock rimming.”)

rock crying (If you could make a rock cry, I would love to see that.)

look climing (Look, climbing!)

lock music (Mostly percussion or electronica, I would think.)

stamp correction (I’m not sure the Post Office needs your help, actually.)

collecting stumps (Okay. I guess. But that’s got to be one of the oddest hobbies I’ve ever heard of)

talking photos (I can hear the 1950s era announcer now, “In the future, we’ll have talking photos!”)
