Ridicurous Engrish: Stationery No.3

“No matter how lonely you get or how many birth announcements you receive, the trick is not to get frightened. There’s nothing wrong with being alone.”

I have actually been feeling a little bit frightened this month due to an unusually high number of birth announcements that I’ve been receiving, so this piece of stationery couldn’t have come at a better time for me.

On a serious note, this is definitely the most disturbing piece of stationery I have ever seen.  Please note the warped perspective created by that alarming wallpaper and lurid carpet; the slightly shrunken cat (a figment of the girl’s imagination?); the heartbreaking fact that there are cupcakes on the table; and finally, the ‘lonely girl’ herself, driven to insanity by ‘birth announcements’.  It’s not so much ‘Lonely Girl’ as it is ‘Korean Teenage Psychosis Induced By Unbelievable Social/Cultural/Biological Pressure To Reproduce Before The Age Of 30’.
