I happened to like the fact that they have logos available that feature a variety of languages, including German. I guess there are still some people that natively speak a form of German in the US, but not many.

This is one thing I did the afternoon of New Year’s Eve, during the week in which I was failing to clean my apartment.
I had a bit of a brainstorm after washing out this Kikkoman soy sauce bottle. I always have a few soy sauce packets around left over from Suruki’s take-out sushi (it’s usually packaged with two packets but I only ever use one). I never really know what to do with them other than toss them in the fridge (or add them to the pile of random detritus on the coffee table). But one of the things that always amuses me (if only me) is the strident command on the Kikkoman soy sauce bottle to REFILL it ONLY WITH KIKKOMAN. (I used it for homemade vinaigrette for a while. Sorry, Kikkoman.)
The rest is documented photographically.
This payphrase thing is ridiculous. Who came up with this crap?
As if I want to pay for my Amazon purchases by entering the phrase “Jason’s Romantic Mistakes.” Are they kidding? These are some other winning suggestions:
- Jason’s Implied Trip
- Jason’s Idealistic Trip
- Jason’s Eccentric Personality
- Political Misunderstandings
- Jason’s Extreme Pedantry (fair enough)
- Jason’s Unconventional Work
- Jason’s Precise Function
- Jason’s Only Function (seriously?)
- Jason’s Buoyant Manner
- Jason’s Exotic Character
- Sanguine Countenance
- Forceful Eagerness
- Maintenance Person
- Eager Swell
- Jason’s Rebellious Lifestyle
- Unruly Consumption
- Jason’s Personal Norm
- Moderate Pals
- Cellular Personality
- Possibly Personality
- Jason’s Hopeful Poems
etc., etc. Seriously, what?
UPDATE: As of 2/20/2012, Amazon Payphrases were (perhaps predictably) no more.
