It is a Yoke

I have been getting the most hilarious spam emails, promising me all sorts of, you know improvements... Ahem. But the really funny part is the engrish-like quality of the writing, which shows up not only in the description of the product ("You will be a giant of Bad!"), but in small stories(?) included in the email. I give you example:

Holy shin.

I got a better one, though: a smarmy package of advertisements handed out to all the native english speakers at the translation conference I just got back from by a couple of Asian girls. They have a translation company that works for good value company including Samsung, etc, and they want more worldwide business... only they were advertising in such a cunning way that they were not totally understandable. Yep, I'll be happy to solicit your translations services...
