Do I even *want* to know...?


So I'm going to guess that, if still properly lettered, this sign would have read something like "BLUETOOTH BLOWOUT SPECIAL." But right now it reads "BLUT OTH BLOWOUT SPECIAL." On the off chance that my assumption about how this should really read "BLUETOOTH" instead of "BLUT OTH" is wrong, who wants to take a stab at what exactly "BLUT OTH" is or means?

Gracias to my former *sniffle!* co-worker ELISA for this picture. ELISA, I hope you're loving your new job...we all miss you! :)

For some reason, "BLURT MOTH" is what sprang to my mind. Yes, I know that doesn't make sense. I'm not saying it's right ... just that it came to mind.

If you must know:
They all lay in stone houses in their great city of R'lyeh, preserved by the spells of mighty Cthulhu for a glorious resurrection when the stars and the earth might once more be ready for Them.

Cthulhu fhtagn - Cthulhu waits dreaming.

Either this is SO clever of a comment that it's over my head, or SOMEBODY'S on drugs.

Drugs, I say, for the previous comment.

I wouldn't have been able to figure out that sign without your translation, thanks!

Haha, CCR, that's funny...you're right, I'm sure that's not what the sign meant to say, but your interpretation of it is quite creative and amusing!

Not on drugs.
I was referencing H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. Lots of hard-to-pronounce words.

Phew! Thanks for clarifying, Sitboaf. :) I was clueless!
