Holy smokes, is this funny!  One of the salesmen who works for a supplier sent me this…

Original ad: I need someone who speaks japanese to help me translate something. wont take too long. please email me ASAP!
From Me to ************@***********.org:
Hi! You need Japanese translate? I Chan, I help you with translate.
– Chan
From Scott ******* to Me:

From Me to Scott *******:
Ok, I find three thing may help you:
“Failure of Sound from Device” “Skipping of disc for poor sound” “Sound volume low very much”
– Chan
From Scott ******* to Me:
umm..what does it say for the failure of sound one?
From Me to Scott *******:
“Hello and thank you for chose glorious master CD player! Apologies many for trouble of product. To fix failure of the sound, follow step:
1. Unplug glorious master CD player 2. Plug glorious master CD player back in”
I hope this help!
– Chan
From Scott ******* to Me:
that doesnt help me at all. is that all it says?
From Me to Scott *******:
Oh no! Very sorry. There more steps to help you! Here:
“If still experience failure of the sound, your glorious master CD player possessed by audio demon. To banish audio demon, follow step:
1. Ignite seven candle 2. Pray to Benzaiten, Goddess of Music 3. Benzaiten will banish audio demon to eternal suffering 4. Try play CD again
If you fail banishing of audio demon, you failure. Much dishonor of family name. Suggest immediate death by Seppuku.”
I hope you banish audio demon! Much luck.
– Chan
From Scott ******* to Me:

From Me to Scott *******:
I just translate what you give.
From Scott ******* to Me:

From Me to Scott *******:
Very sorry, audio demon big problem with many CD player! I have sword, much sharp, good for seppuku. You want borrow?
From Scott ******* to Me:

From Scott ******* to Me:

From Me to Scott *******:
That no table of content, that Sushi take-out menu! Try #16, Spicy Salmon Roll! Much delicious!
From Scott ******* to Me:
……….ok buddy. thanks for nothing you jackass


Later, from another email account


From Me to *********@*********.org:
Hey there,
I saw your ad and think I can help you. I majored in Japanese in college, speak it fluently, and lived in Miyazaki for two years.
Mike
From Scott ******* to Me:
thanks so much mike. i was talking to someone else for help, but idk what his problem was. dude kept sending me all this BS. anyway my cd player isnt working and the manual is only in japanese so i need help reading the troubleshooting part. i think the attached picture is the table of contents, could you see if it says what page the troubleshooting part is on and then ill send you that?

From Me to Scott *******:
You sent me a sushi take-out menu. Are you sure you have the right documents?
From Scott ******* to Me:
wtf!!! i dont know what is going on! it has a picture of the cd player on the front and then this is the next page. why would they put a sushi menu in there?
From Me to Scott *******:
Japanese instruction manuals are not like the American manuals you are used to. They often include advertisements, and I guess in this case, a sushi menu. Looking at it closer, it says “Thank you for purchasing this glorious master CD player. Why not order sushi while you enjoy music?”
Mike
From Scott ******* to Me:
well that is dumb…whatever. i think this page is the troubleshooting part because of the tables. am i right? do you see anything about there not being any sound?

From Me to Scott *******:
Yes, this is the right page. It says to unplug it and plug it back in.
Mike
From Scott ******* to Me:
yea i did that. nothing. is that it?
From Me to Scott *******:
Well, you’re not gonna want to hear this, but it says your CD player is possessed by Amanojaku, or “audio demon.” You should light three candles and pray to Benzaiten, the god of music.
Mike
From Me to Scott *******:
Scott? Were you able to banish the audio demon?
