    If I saw the jerk chicken one on a menu, I'd have to order it.

    (On the other hand, ALL of these folks write English way, way better than I write Chinese or their language.)

    Are there any Asian websites making fun of westerns butchering their language?

    Take heart gkelly, at the bottom of this list, there is another one of "the 25 whitest family photos of all time".

    There might be and these might be equally funny. But you need to keep in mind that way more people who speak an Asian language also learn/speak English than vice versa.

    Hanzi Smatter is kind of like that, it takes user submitted photos of Chinese character tattoos and tells them what the character/phrase actually means, and if it's written correctly.

    The most tragic (and frequently seen) ones are the tattoos that are based on a font in which random characters or fragments of characters were assigned to the letters A through Z :eek::scream::shuffle:
