Graph Jam vs. Engrish

Faithful readers, I'm having a dilemma.

When I first started this blog, I had a "Daily Graph Jam" on the sidebar. This continued for a while until I remembered about one of my other favorite sites, While Graph Jam was fun and new and entertaining, Engrish was an old friend who helped me laugh during my college days. So I switched to the "Engrish Translation of the Day" as you see now. Each day (except for weekends) I switch the sidebar to the latest and greatest Engrish translation.

Now, however, I'm wanting to go back to Graph Jam as I'm finding some new favorites that I want to share with you (y'all, for the Texans).

So what should I do, faithful readers? Which shall I choose for the sidebar? Graph Jam, with it's witty and contemporary humor? Or with it's humorous and unbelievable mistranslations?

Cast your vote now! Well, look below for a taste of what each site holds and THEN cast your vote.

Here are the examples from

A Hair-raising Tale of Horror!!!

I've seen some horrible hair styles in my day. While some are natural, a lot of the bad hair that I've seen has actually turned out to be fake hair. People use toupees, weaves, extensions and the like to try and make their hair look better, but it usually just looks like they have squirrels nesting on their head.

So imagine my surprise when I found out that a bad hairdo in Kansas City, Missouri saved a woman's life. Briana Bonds pulled into a convenience store parking lot and saw her ex-boyfriend, Juan Kemp, sitting in a car. Another man ran up to her window and told her that her ex still loved her. She replied that she didn't love him anymore and started to drive off.

That's when she heard the gunshots. (Dum dum duuuuuuuuuum!)

Bonds turned and and saw that Kemp was holding a gun and firing at her. Her back window shattered and she even felt something hit the back of her head, but she kept on driving. Police were called and Kemp was arrested. And when they were examining Bonds, they found something strange in her hair weave. They found. . .a bloody hook from the one-armed mental patient who escaped the day before!!! (Dum dum DUUUUUUUUUUUM!)

I kid.

They actually found the bullet. Yes, Kemp actually did hit Bonds, but her tight "natural-looking" hair weave stopped the bullet! She even said that the bullet was still hot when she found it.

Now THAT'S what I call a close call!

Don't believe me? See for yourself!

The Stars Are Out!

I've complained about the Oscars before, but I have to state once more that they've seriously lost touch with reality and their audience. It's like they're not even aware of what the general public wants and likes.

Remember back when the Academy Awards used to be elegant, glamorous and spectacular? An event that was magical and glorious?

Like back in 1989?

Pure magic!

(You don't have to watch the whole thing to see how horrible this clip is, but trust me, it builds in wonderful awfulness!)
