China is a big country. And that big country has two very big cell phone carriers. They have offices just about everywhere so I’m sure everyone can learn their names and distinctive logos:

Heck, even their names are always written in both English and Chinese. This just isn’t a name you can butcher, right?
Well, not quite. Enter the touristy town of Dali, famous for its nearby 3 Pagodas.
And famous for this…
Yes that is the very same China Mobile and China Unicom, though this time sold through a family owned shop. As for the names…well…umm….errr…any ideas?

Maybe they’re trying to be creative? Perhaps they think they’re using intentional misspellings in a unique way? Or maybe a unicorn is making their signs now, thanks to budget cuts in the sign-making industry. Not sure….
Haha given China’s track record strangely translated signage, I don’t think it’s intentional. Love your unicorn suggestion though! LOL!
I think they’re selling the same China Unicom phones but with drugs stashed inside. Be careful you don’t become a mule.
Haha. Is the spelling of the sign a good tip that drugs are involved? 😛
