We'll Have Manhattam? / ¿Tendremos Manhattam?

LOOK WHAT I found in a New York–themed section in our premier department store.

MIRA LO QUE encontré en una sección con el tema de Nueva York en nuestro primer gran almacén. 

Nota: "We'll Have Manhattan" (o simplemente "Manhattan") es una canción escrita y compuesta por Richard Rodgers y Lorenz Hart en 1925. Lo siento porque no puedo encontrar una versión español en YouTube.

I'VE BEEN TO MANHATTAN BUT NEVER MANHATTAM.
HE ESTADO EN MANHATTAN, PERO NUNCA EN MANHATTAM.
I SUPPOSE THAT'S WHY I NEVER FOUND AVENUE 85 (BUT I DID FIND 85TH STREET).
¡AND I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT "QY St."!
SUPONGO QUE POR ESO NUNCA HE ENCONTRADO LA AVENIDA 85 (PERO ENCONTRÉ LA CALLE "85° STREET").
¡Y NO TENGO IDEA DE "QY St."!

      And these weren't even as cheap as usual. If I wouldn't mind wearing NY shirts, I'd start a collection.

      I had never seen so many NY borough shirts until I moved here. Who knew the Bronx was such a popular place?

  5. I think Reagan must have cut funding to education back in 1985.

      Proof that the damage Reagan did is still being felt.

  9. I watched You Tube video about bad English in Japan, apparently when English speakers buy clothing with words in Japanese the words are utter nonsense.

      I heard lots of stories about tattoos of Japanese characters that weren't what the tattoo-ees thought they were.

  10. Do you see people wearing clothing like this? Does it go best with plaids AND stripes?
