At Narita Airport

On the Narita stopover during my flight back to Australia, I noticed that the Japanese referred to the high-paying customers of another flight as 'First Crass Customers'.

I love this. It suggests that passengers can get a good seat by simply fronting up and saying swear words:

"Herro, first crass or economy?"
"Prease step this way, sir!"

"First crass?"
"Wercome aboard!"

"First crass passenger, sir?"
"Sorry, sir: we are not taking on second crass customers yet. Onry first crass!"

While we're on the subject of Engrish, the Asiatic medicine store down the road offers treatment for 'Irritable Bowl Syndrome'. Yes, the same one mentioned in this post.

Rearry, it's not a probrem. 'Course, those Japanese have one-up on me - they actually speak two languages, and the occasional mispronunciation hardly alters that fact!
