I used to be a BNA warrior, until I took an arrow to the knie.

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’.)

These are the same British North America slippers worn by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867. (Canadian history)

@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.

Marum

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

BNA = Banana Nibblers Association. 👿

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”.

Buy ‘N’ Arge is your superstore
We’ve got all you need
And so much more!
Happiness is what we trade
That’s why everyone
Loves BNA!
(Anybody watch Wall-E, anyone? I was reminded of this the second time I saw this Engrish.)
