a phrase that needs to die

I wonder if this phrase will ever die. The above sign was recently spotted by a keen-eyed reader outside the Lush soap and cosmetics store in Harvard Square. What "love you long time" has to do with selling soap, I have no idea. Damn you, Full Metal Jacket. Damn you, 2 Live Crew. (Thanks, Sonja.)

But of course, I am reminded of this brilliant t-shirt, which is apparently one of Blacklava's top sellers: I WILL NOT LOVE YOU LONG TIME. It also comes in women's sizes. Wear it proudly, my friends.
