"God Make Me Cool" or "Engrish is Fun"

Sometimes, English phrases are appropriated (or misappropriated) for their coolness.  Perhaps this is something that is thought of as cool or "kakoii" for those who are Japanese. However, for native English speakers these signs provide endless hours of chuckles and what were they thinking moments. 

Although, the phrase on this sign is not incorrect, it would not normally used as part of an advertisement in most places (especially in the US where they have a heightened sense of political correctness and sensitivity to all things religious).  This shot was of shop window for "Love Run" located near Hiroo station.
