Chinglish doesn't even come close to this

My $1 summer house slippers are delightfully Chinese- a true specimen of modern China.

They are rubber soled, yet the inner sole is lined with stitched bamboo sticks. The wide strap passing over the top of my foot is made of woven bamboo straw, but is edged with nylon fabric.

Like many Chinese products, they are emblazoned with English writing, which is very popular here. The rubber logo on the top of the shoes says:

-the quality chhn grm grh ment-

2008
SPORT
COOT


-the quality chhn grm grh ment-

Usually I can guess at what they meant to say, but this time I have absolutely no clue.

That was very clever, Daniela! I had no idea. Looks like you have a Column 8 item here Louise.
