English words in Japanese (for Gaijin)

for those who didn't know, the japanese have an entire alphabet for English words.

http://jin.jcic.or.jp/kidsweb/language/katakana.html

From the Ministry of trying to figure out what one of my t-shirts says.

damn you katakana! one day i will re-master you!!!

and even if you find the phonetic sounds there, theres no gaurantee its going to make sense or be a real word.

plus, your shirt may not be in katakana, maybe hiragana, or kanji.

or katakana and kanji.

katakana is mostly used for translating english words into japanaese phonetically, or as short form for writing kanji on computer and such.
to my understsanding.
im sure kumi could help you out.

Neko Baka = Crazy Cat! (I think..)
Imo Baka = Crazy Potato?
