The Air Is Yours: At the Station, Part 2

T-shirts with English expressions are quite popular and I often wonder if folks have any clue what they’re saying as they parade around town. Sometimes I’ll offer to translate.

This nice lady and I both were waiting to board the train from Donetsk to Kiev when I noticed this shirt of hers and thought of you dear blog readers - that's you and you. . . and you and YOU too. And I knew you would Insist on seeing this shirt. If only you knew.



So I offered to translate. It was the least I could do, really, and we enjoyed visiting. And suddenly, it was All Aboard! And there was hardly time for a photo. . .but we snapped real quick like. (Tell you the truth, I was surprised she said allowed me to shoot.)


The air is yours. . . (Am I the last to know this?)




FOREVER YOUNG
THE SO EFFECT
OCTOBER PARADISE
BEACH OUTHPAR (Could this beach have started out as SouthparK?)
CAR RAN KENNY

Quite inspiration, don't ya think? I mean, just to think that the air belongs to you. That you're forever young. It's effective and all that. Thank goodness the last line is not CAR RAN *OVER* KENNY. That would be a Not SO EFFECT.

Dear blog readers, what t-shirts have you seen with amazingly convoluted English? Did you translate into, like Mongolian or Spanish or whatever? We wanna hear your stories. Remember, the air is yours.

Hilarious, huh? Candy, Bet you'll like the next t-shirt picture that's coming up. I've *scheduled* a blog for Saturday if I recall with a cute one (with the "delay-post" option available on these blogs). Thanks for stopping by. Happy t-shirting.
