Mispronounced or mis-translated English words which are included in Japanese songs, signs etc. They sound so funny ;)

And the reverse goes for the word Japperese

In Engrish: "Siwent naight, howly naight, shehpar krake ah da side"

In English: "Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight"

Engrish is a form of English used from quite a few Japanese people learning English. Usually those people only learn it if they're friends with a foreigner or they are not trying that hard at English.

Engrish is slurred and they try to use R's for the sounds not in their language. (I.E. A few letters in the Alphabet arent in the Japanese Alphabet, like X and V). It sounds hilarious and they seem quite good to other Japanese, but to americans its HILARIOUS!

Those people are definately NOT trying hard to learn English, therefore it was named Engrish, for the Japanese people who suck at English.

Alot of times its in Japanese college because of the whole foreign student issue, people try to learn english ASAP to interact and speak with the foreigner for many reasons.
Lets say, foreigner was speaking to classmate, who met his enemy! Foreigner is Adam, Classmate is Shinobu, and Enemy is Mayagi Here is their Engrish example from an anime that I found (dunno the names surry):

Shinobu is walking down and his friend Adam sees him, before Mayagi sees him in his car.
Mayagi: Oi, Shinobu! *gets out of car*
Adam: Hey, Shinobu! *runs from behind* Did you see Panda vs. Higi Panda on TV last night?
Shinobu: *doesnt realise mayagi is there* Neah! I wuz roaring on ze fror raffing!
Mayagi: Dude! Who's that *points at Adam, shocking Shinobu from his appearance*
Adam: Who's that?
Shinobu: You zont have to know. Get rin my rouse.
Adam: *walks away with shinobu* ah.
Mayagi: *grabs shinobu*
Shinobu: Mayagi?
Adam: Huh?
Mayagi: Not ro worry. He rill be rif me for rile.
Adam: Hey! *watches as Shinobu and Mayagi drive off, abandoning him*

thats the best example I could think of from an anime.
