Steve Caires of sent me this today:

From Hector Garcia's A Geek in Japan:

"At first glance, it seems like a kid with a supercool sweater with a Japanese character. The problem is that the character η—” means “hemorrhoid” in Japanese. Probably the designer confused the character 侍, which means “samurai” and is pronounced “ji”, with the character η—” that means “hemorrhoid” and is also pronounced “ji”… Both characters are graphically very similar but the meaning is totally different!"
