POTD: Language Barrier

Language Barrier
Nanjing, China
2018

There is a line of small type below “why nobody fights’ on this woman’s jacket that says “let me do the fight.” English words are quite popular on jackets and t-shirts in China. Quite often it seems they don’t know exactly what they are saying; at least it’s nothing I can figure out a reasonable meaning for. That is no different, I’m sure, from a lot of Americans who put Chinese symbols on their clothes (or tatoos, or artwork, etc.). They do it because they like the way it looks but don’t really know what they are saying or if they are getting their point across correctly.
