    In high school I once saw a T-shirt with the word “adidn’t” on it. That I am sure was deliberate.

    They’re collectibles. Collect all 23. (Not 24, because the collection obviously does not include ‘NIKE’.)

    @FB 0641. What’s wrong with having your spanners made by a dorp?

    Good tradesmen are hard to some by.

    Not long after, I found “KINE” slippers. Unsurprisingly, they were made of cows’ leather.

    Actually I like “mondagreens”, and the way the name came about, malapropisms, spoonerisms, puns, and the myriad of crazy things one can do with english

    ‘O ye Highlands,
    And ye Lowlands,
    Where hae yer bin,
    They’ve slain the Duke O Moray,
    And Lady Mondagreen.
    (Laid him on the green) Hence: (which lay heggs) mondagreens.

    Even the Maori language is subject to mondagreens.

    The Maori version of the NZ national anthem. first two lines:

    ♫E Ihowa atua.
    O nga iwi matou ra♪

    The kids sing O nga iwi Matoura. “Matoura” is a town in the south island

    Sori. How rude of me
    First two lines translation.

    ♫O Lord, God,
    Of nations and us too♪

    It is not a translation of the “white/English version. ie

    ♫God of angels at thy feet,
    In the bonds of love we meet♪

    Or as the Rugby Union players sing it.:

    God of angels at thy feet,
    Give us shoes for we’ve flat feet?

    Ben: They don’t want to get it right. They claim that “BNA” and “NKIE” aren’t trademark infringements because they aren’t spelled “NBA” and “NIKE”.

  34. Pete | 10:24 am |  Vote: Add rating 3  Subtract rating 0  

    Maybe they were trying to spell “nookie”?
