Scary-ass eBay find – Fans of “Engrish” rejoice!

Faithful Macenstein reader Richard Neville writes:

Hi Doc,
Just sitting here at the ‘ol office at 11pm waiting for memory scans to finish so I thought I’d start eBay’ing. In my quest for all things Apple, I found this gem:

As beautiful as the visual is, as with all items originating in Hong Kong, the item description is better.


– 100% Brand New Box set, perfect gift choose.

– Overcome the shortcoming of camera cell phone that can only near-sighted, it also makes distant view for you at the moment

– This telescope enables you to focus on distant objects without losing any clarity, making it a snap to capture a high quality photograph

– You can zoom to focus the distant objects clearly and make a high quality photograph easily

– This telescope is compatible with the majority of cellophanes and PDAs in the market


– Also can use for long-distance shooting while viewing sporting events, for trips, hunting bird watching, hiking, on board ship, or at the concert or theater

– The new design to run of rays can effectively avoid the contortion of image, and makes the super wide angle, the higher visual acuteness, and good for color reduction, which makes the high quality of photography

Wow. The perfect gift choose! Compatible with the majority of cellophanes! No more contorted images! It makes distant view for you at the moment! Good for color reduction! (because who wants color?) All this for $21.98 (US)? How did it not sell?
Check out the listing here.

  5. They would have sold more of these if they had used creepy X-10 sales tactics, but in Engrish dialect. For example: “Good for making watch baby sitter while child sittings”, or, “Take to beach and picture graphic fun girl time”.
