What on earth? How does this make sense. I can hear your school kid French coming back to you….I’m sure VACHE means COW. So ‘oh the cow’ WTF?
For linguists – I’m sure you’re with me.
It’s the best way to say ‘OH MY GOD’ or ‘HOLY SH*T’ which quite frankly, our company needs that response – especially from linguists.
We also use OLV when we see something spelt incorrectly on a slogan tee or print. We die a little inside. My brain can’t comprehend how the big, corporate companies haven’t taken the time to ask a linguist and the IGNORANCE of a large proportion of the British island shines through.
We’re here to change that and it’s going to be epic. We’re officially the grammar police for all things colourful and lingolike.
I mean we’re going to aim high and say that we’ll be THE place to come for all language stationary, art and clothing.
