New York Shitty Day Ender: Lost & Found In Translation

From Mott Street, Manhattan

This (which hails from the Canal Street stop of the 6 train in Manhattan) is bona fide proof that New York City is still an international city— if not in subway service, at least in anger directed at lack of said subway service. Only the MTA could make this kind of racial/ethnic unity (albeit while employing profanity) happen. Mazel tov!

The use of sarcastic quotation marks is a nice touch.

P.S.: Can anyone give me a translation of the Chinese annotation on this flier? My curiousity is driving me crazy.

  2. The Chinese just says “Fuck You.” The second character is “You” The first word “Diu” is just a Cantonese derogatory term that only really translates well as “Fuck.”
