Scooter Madness

This seems to be the week of ambiguously gay scooter spottings...

No sooner had I published the previous scooter post than I saw this scooter, even closer to my house, as I was going to buy Subway a sandwich. I couldn't figure out why "Man Boy, Closer to Nature" seemed strange to me until I googled it at home. :)
If everyone wasn't riding a scooter here, I'd start to think driving scooters was a sort of sub-culture in Taiwan.

As it is, I can only wonder what this means to Taiwanese (if anything), or what the marketing people thought it meant... or maybe they just saw it somewhere and put it on?


  1. Heh heh heh... indeed... sorry to point such things out! :-P

  2. No, that's okay. It's actually a sick-and-twisted sort of way. :-P

    Interesting view of a different culture!

  3. Heh heh heh... agreed! The thing that I like about Taiwan is that this sort of thing happens all the time, but not on purpose. They are actually quite innocent about things like this, and so it's kind of... nice? Nice that they don't know about this bad stuff (at least in English) ;)
