Steve Caires of Engrish.com sent me this today:

From Hector Garcia's A Geek in Japan:

"At first glance, it seems like a kid with a supercool sweater with a Japanese character. The problem is that the character means “hemorrhoid” in Japanese. Probably the designer confused the character , which means “samurai” and is pronounced “ji”, with the character that means “hemorrhoid” and is also pronounced “ji”… Both characters are graphically very similar but the meaning is totally different!"
