I’m sure you’ll all be thrilled to know that I went back to Rossy last weekend (see also: this post). I didn’t have much time for photos (it was an emergency sock-finding mission), but I couldn’t leave without searching for a few more Engrish-tastic treats for you guys. Please, save your applause for the comments section.
First up: Wild Focus! I really don’t know how I left the store without this. Everlasting friendship(!) is good, but fashion smell? That’s something that’s REALLY hard to find.
Yeah, I know. That dress, right? Apparently this particular fashion smell is eau de wardrobe malfunction. Dolls Gone Wild (Focus)!
I actually found the dolls themselves more entertaining than the packaging this time. These two were particular favourites:
Say what you will about Rossy, but I’m willing to bet you can’t get a Drunken Floozie play set at Walmart. I’m not sure what’s most disturbing here: the trashy streaks in the hair, the stench of desperation coming off of the one with her boobs falling out, or the fact that the one on the left kind of looks like Paris Hilton (but less plastic). Also, it looks like Paris there is holding her BFF’s hair as she frantically searches for a gutter to puke in, but that’s more hilarious than disturbing.
OK, last up today we have the amusingly-named White-Collar OH DEAR LORD WHAT IS WRONG WITH HER CROTCH?!!
I’m going to be having nightmares about that for the next month. First grade product my ass.

Bwahahahaha! Loved this post. No, I think I get it. First grade product means they took conceptual drawings from first graders to make it. This reminds me of shopping in Japan. ^_^

I’m guessing you’ve visited http://engrish.com ?

I have, and laughed so hard! Haven’t been in ages, though.

I’m betting you could submit one of your Mossy photos to it. They’re pretty awesome! 🙂

I could! But it would be so hard to choose which.
Rossy is a terrible store for actually buying things (though I did get some amazing pink and orange argyle knee socks!), but the browsing and photo ops are excellent. 🙂

I’ve never even heard of Rossy. Local thing? Sounds like the less good cousin of Ross. 😉

Very local- I don’t know if there are any outside of Newfoundland. That and Riff’s, which is another discount store, but it doesn’t have drunken floozie playsets, so we don’t bother.
February 21st, 2013 at 2:16 pm
Pfff… no drunken floozie playsets? I can see why you wouldn’t bother.
February 21st, 2013 at 6:11 pm
Quite frankly, I don’t know why anyone would. 😉
