Worst advertising slogan ever

Recent spam from 'Quincy Aldridge' begins:

You can literally take years off your life by using HGH.

Um, thanks, but no.

Also in the mail today:

get larger balls and penís

I understand the 'penís' part, but larger balls? Does anyone really care? I mean, it's like wanting larger tonsils. Do any women get ovary implants to impress the men in their lives? Some organs, the default size is just fine.

meaning: wait
招待 == shoutai == invitation
心待ち == kokoromachi == anticipation, expectation

Left radical is 'movement along a road', right radical is 'temple' (寺), which acts phonetically to express 'stop', i.e., 'stop moving', or 'wait'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Wait at temple beside road.'
