PIG IN A LUGGAGE ON ANTIBIOTICS by 


i saw a guy on a train in tokyo with this odd slogan boldly slapped across his over-sized calico bag. it was just big black text, but it stuck with me (god i love japlish) and therefore i decided to give it a face. thankyou random tokyo funkster

*BELIEVE IT OR NOT – THIS TEE HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH SWINE FLU….IT WAS CREATED LONG BEFORE THE CURRENT EPIDEMIC………(was said tokyo funkster in actual fact some kind of mystical disease prophet..?…) HOWEVER, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DENY THAT IT REPRESENTS IT PERFECTLY, AS MANY HAVE POINTED OUT TO ME!! so i have succumbed and entered it in the swine flu challenge….so give it a vote if you like it! thanks!

    There’s a line in the Radiohead song “Fitter, Happier”, which refers to “a pig in a cage on antibiotics”.

    Misheard lyric or lost in translation perhaps?

  • oh well that is a great little piece of info! i didnt know the lyrics, but it’s quite possible this is the case……and once again japlish has given us a beautiful and hilarious snippet. …… this boy on the train could well have just liked radiohead ..and possibly got a little mixed up with the old phrase book…altho he wouldnt have needed to translate anything really… haha… i love it. an enigmatic and glorious conundrum. just like tokyo!
