Monday Manglish-- I Want This Hat

"I see the splendid future over... It do not be please smashed."

One of my English students (a fourth grade girl) came in wearing this hat.

I do not have a hat like that...

I wish I had a hat like that...

I plan to look for one and wear it the next time somebody predicts the end of the world;-))


  1. Wow, that's a particularly special one! If possible, you most certainly should get a hat like that!

  2. One wonders who comes up with those slogans. :)

  3. Lol, I wonder who wrote that on the hat.
    Love the new picture at the top of the page!

  4. OMG!!! It do not be pleased smashed is AWESOME!!! I need to use that in a daily conversation

  5. To be fair, I've seen worse grammar on Conservapedia...

  6. Good one, Daz ;)

    The hat is fabulous!

  7. I have no idea what it means! It could be taken as either pro- or anti-apocalypse.

  8. Chris-- one of the more special ones I've found lately!

    Sachi-- I *always* wonder that...

    Ezmirelda-- hi! Glad you like the header:-)) Are your finals done? (I'm sure you got all A's;-)

    Sarah-- I fully plan on incorporating "it do not please be smashed" into my vocab... though it may confuse my kids...

    Daz-- HA! True--so have I!

    Alice-- glad you like:-)

    Jerry-- That's what I thought. The first 'sentence' seems slightly pro-... the second one seems firmly anti-. Maybe the sentiment of "it do not please be smashed" is the overriding sentiment?
