Mmmm...Hazard Taste

Mmmm...Hazard Taste

I've run into a string of odd products, dumb advertisements, and some pretty messed up English as of late. This is especially distressing as I am an English teacher. I don't expect people to be perfect, but it seems that English here is getting worse.

I know that Korean advertisers are not concerned with the message they get across, just that they have something in English. Still, there are tons of foreigners over here. How hard is it to run a slogan or ad by one of us to see if it makes sense. Then again the results are entertaining. I now realize that should be adding more sincerity in the cup when I make coffee.

Yes, I'll have to ask Jason to put some more sincerity into our coffee pot in the morning...'cause I can still usually taste the hazard in it. Thanks for the tip!
