Food, glonous food.

No, that’s not a typo.  It’s a show tune by way of chopsticks wrapper:


In case you can’t read the text, it says:

Welcome to Chinese Restaurant.
please try your Nice Chinese Food With Chopsticks
the traditional and typical of Chinese glonous history.
and cultur al.

I first blogged about this sort of thing a very long time ago , but I still love loony neologisms created in the service of signage.

ETA: Rebecca points out that I mistakenly credited them with spelling "cultural" correctly.  Heh.


  1. LOL Someone made the ri into n. My handwriting is like that! Does this mean you feel better and got out?

  2. I think it actually says “cultual” too. The Chinese place I favor has chopsticks in a wrapper that is similar but not identical to that.

    RE the “Breakfast Club” commercial: I’m with you 100%.

  3. You’re right! It does say “cultual.”

  4. Adorably cute! Thanks for posting the photo!
