Too bad we can't see what the original Japanese might have been.  I'd like to know what they were trying to say.

From this day forward I am going to do everything I can to ensure that "Take a grip of steering!" becomes a common, everyday expression.

There's a line of kits made by Arii  called "american violence" I've seen the text on the box top and its got some sort of reference to evacuatiing ones bowells. I'd love to know what they were really thinking.

Went to engrish, what a hoot. Found this one, a similar subject matter. The girl actually looks happy to be wearing this. Whats the fascination with the bowels?
