English on Spanish

On our weekly shopping excursion to the wilds of the Spanish coast, I happened to see two examples of the horrendous English that is used on Spanish t-shirts, which I previously wrote about in Spanish fashion backward. I had a camera with me for once so I can finally share this with you….   
 

 Spanish T-shirts

 Yes that is Vanilla Ice, and yes he is hard! Hard as well…. Steel Forgings? I couldn’t even begin to tell you what the rest of those seemingly random letters and numbers are supposed to represent.

 

 Spanish t-shirts wrong English

I’ve contemplated the meaning of this phrase since I first saw it. I’ve come to the conclusion that my tiny intellect just isn’t yet ready for such profound truth!

I’m putting up a ‘normal’ post tomorrow.

    • You’re right Claire, allow me clarify. Tomorrow, I’ll put up one of my extraordinarily strange but somehow arousing posts. –By arousing, I mean revolting.

  2. I’d like to order one of every size of both shirts. It’s how you say… awesome?

  3. Done Rooster! I’d better hurry and get some more “Transchangers” shirts too, before they sell out. The movie is so hot right now!

    • Is the homo-phob poster a t-shirt yet, ’cause I’d like one of those too?

      • You’ve just given me another ‘million dollar idea!”

  4. Transchangers?

    • You’d think transchangers would have something to do with one of my more controversial posts wouldn’t you?
      Nope, how they got “transformers” wrong is beyond me. Actually I do understand. Everybody and their great aunt tries to do knock offs leaving the public with Guchi bags and Adidos shoes (with 2 stripes), from now on I’m carrying a camera everywhere!
