At work, for reasons I cannot even begin to fathom, the factory in China gets to mangle our manuals, requiring me to fix them. Word files of the manuals come to us with either no spaces whatsoever between words, or spaces in the wrong places. Every so often, there’s a paragraph that has spaces in some of the right places, just to lull you into a false sense of security. And thus was entire work day for me turned into combing through several manuals and occasionally finding gems of Engrish hilarity.

I thought this was the manual for a generator, but it may be for an owl instead.

Only Andre can adjust this. No one else is qualified. Andre available separately.

Products actually require magic to work: just ask the Transfers Witch. She’s probably in cahoots with the owl. CAHOOTS. Transfers Witch available separately.
