    Unofficial definitions incoming!

    Engrish - When Japanese language intersplices English words into their speech. This typically creates odd-sounding words due to the amalgamation of Japanese syllables being used to say english words. This creates a usually humorous dissonance in English-speaking audiences when they hear a word they recognize in the middle of a string of foreign dialogue due to slight mispronunciations. Particularly egregious examples involve replacing the letter "L" in English words with an "R" sound due to the Japanese language not having any word that uses the "L" sound.

    Examples: "Trauma" in Engrish is spoken with the Japanese syllables "tora-uma." Or more well-known on the internet, "Gilgamesh" in Engrish is spoken as "Girugamesh."

    Since most Engrish is only appreciated by the English-speaking audience, Reverse-Engrish is when this audial dissonance is pointed out from a Japanese perspective in an attempt at self-referential humor, thereby making the humor itself come from the self-reference rather than the off-setting language mispronunciations themselves. Hence the picture of the screenshot saying "Victoly." The humor is that when taken as Engrish from a Japanese perspective, the word "Victory," since it has an "R," would trade out that "R" for an "L" when translated to English and result in an incorrect word. Ha ha ha ha ha.

    This thread is a redundant spam thread. We have a thread for all your completely random thoughts and whims- it's random off-topic. Also the manner you guys are posting in is insensitive to certain groups (not to mention they wouldn't write it like that, they'd spell everything normally), personally I'd refrain from it on our forum that is an international community.

    I'm just gonna lock this up. Please try not to fill up off topic with spam threads like this one
