We have no idea who first posted this picture, but just to set the record straight, the sign is using a bilingual pun on the Japanese word è²§ä¹ (binbo) which can be translated as “poor.” It’s apparently promoting a store that sells cheap PCs and computer parts, though we do kind of like the sound of “binbows,” and may just start using it around the office when we want to refer to Michaelsoft’s flagship product. Or other products that are deemed worthy of such an appellation.
