Cultural appropriation gone humorously wrong.

I went to a teppanyaki restaurant where the (non-Japanese) hostesses were dressed in kimonos. Being women, they wore their kimonos in the traditional western female style of the right side over left. The problem is that in Japan everyone (men and women) wear their kimono left over right ... except corpses in their coffin are dressed in kimonos with right over left. So I was served by zombies.

Any other examples of funny culture appropriation that you've experienced?
If all else fails, try S.C.E. to Aux.
