Her tattoo doesn't say "BBQ grill" or "tiny charcoal grill" any more than "Ich bin ein Berliner" translates to "I am a jelly doughnut."  The meaning was fine, it just happens that it's also a term that people use for the small grill.

/I swear, people be dumb.

The irony here is that the music video for the song actually uses the longer, more "proper" way to write it.

Because people who make decisions that differ from your own are terrible and should be ridiculed. This is Fark, after all. Where folks go to be shiatty and judgmental to people they'll never know.

Being judgemental about people being judgemental about things that are objectively a poor decision. How meta.

I was reading a thread of Japanese responses to this whole deal...a couple of them mentioned something about the characters being, or maybe being derived from, Chinese characters.  I wasn't really paying attention to it and prob would never have thought about it if it weren't for this post.

Weird wild stuff.

She loves my dad jokes.

I'm not a tattoo guy, so I don't really "get them" to begin with, but you think even SHE would be smarter than tattooing something so "here and now" on such a visible location.

Like what if, god forbid, she has a long career?
Do you think Madonna would want "Born to Be Alive" tattooed on her hands?

But again, I don't get tattoos, so maybe she would?

It doesn't directly translate to that, but contextually does.  If he'd been in Hamburg and said, "Ich bin ein Hamburger" how would you interpret that?

Well, considering the time we live in, I am confident at least one person would have one braincell, and question how that would sound on t.v. or radio. Or have the balls to tell Kennedy how that would sound to Americans. And he would listen.

I ventured into the morass that is the politics tab once.  I have less confidence that there are any functional braincells among the political zealots.

The problem is that she shrank the phrase (it does start with 七 and end with 輪).  The English equivalent would be if you wanted a tattoo to proudly proclaim your job title of "Analyst and Therapist", but then the tattoo hurt really bad so you decided to condense down to "Analrapist".

My favorite Japanese tattoo fail is some emo kid wanted "Depression" in kanji, so he got a dictionary, checked twice, and made sure the tattooist got it right.

And so, somewhere out there, is a guy with 不景気 on his body.

Only that phrase means "Economic Depression".

You would interpret it as the difference between literal and metaphorical speech.

Yeah, but in the time they lived in, nobody was savvy enough about PR to know Nixon should've shaved before a debate.

Way back when the Terri Schiavo thing was going on down in Florida, a tattoo parlor was offering a FREE tattoo of her face anywhere on your body. 

A friend of mine still, unfortunately, has her face sitting on his upper left thigh.
