Au pair, mon frere?

Taysharmonica cracked the case of the gray t-shirt and I must say, I'm impressed!! Go to her blog and kiss her feet. Right now! www.righthickssave.wordpress.com



Someone look this up. I have to go for now.

Ahhh! Brava, Taysharp! It means nothing, really...as you know, an 'au pair' is a nanny, 'mon frere' is my brother, so in the end...nonsense.

Unless I'm missing some obscure reference, which does happen. On the rare occasion.

Haha - thanks, caryl! That's ok, I don't need my feet kissed. My butt will do just fine.

(just kidding)

I'm no cunning linguist, but could his shirt mean that we're all brothers or we are our brother's keeper???

caryl said...

Or maybe he's offering his brother a nanny?

Valerie said...

but if you look closely at his shirt it is a B and not a p....

hmmm.

My nanny is my brother's keeper? lol

caryl said...

My nanny is my brother?

Oh brother, it's my nanny?

My nanny is a keeper?

Keep my brother, please?

Or, as Valerie said, it could be a "b" and that's a whole other problem.

There's a great site you can go to and get translations of about any language. It's www.babelfish.altavista.com and there Taylor's shirt translates to "with the par my brother".IMO I think this means we are all the same. My oldest grandson turned me onto this site and it's fun and informative. Glad to see you blogging more again.

Thanks for pointing me to that site, jojosie. I bookmarked it.

I think what we can assume from this investigation is that Taylor thought the shirt was a nice color and he liked the little map on it. ("words? What words?")

The other day I was gonna say that I had a picture of Taylor lookin straight at the camera, and you could read the shirt perfect. But unforunetly, my internet sucks, and it went capoot.

But also, I forgot about how I was curious once and found a website that translated it. I didn't remember that I knew what it was till Jojosie said "With the par, my brother." And it still made no sense to me. But I understand her opinion now. :)

Man... I'm forgetful.

I don't think it's a b. In this close-up, you can see the bottom of the p better.

Also, in this close-up of the picture of Taylor at the piano, you can see the "u" before the next word, so it must say, "au pair," as in the picture of the shirt itself. (I don't think the shirt says, "au bair.")

Well, at least we loyal fans know how to occupy our time while we wait for a new album! (It's better than comparing photos of women, you know?)

Thanks for your help, TH!
