It's one of those things that have been passed around for ages, well before computers and fax machines. Basically you are presented with what looks like gibberish (or in other versions, Latin) and you are told to read it. Somebody else takes it and phonetically reads it or otherwise says what is written so it sounds close to real words.

You see:
MR DUCKS
It says:
Them are ducks.

And so forth.

I read a much better one once that went something like:
Osibili, si ergo...
which would say
Oh see, Billy, see 'er go...
and so forth. It was about trucks.

It's funny on a piece of paper. You'd really need to sell me on the art for me to pay for it and wear it on a shirt.

And it was billed as the Arkansas Reading Test, as far as I know this one started when Clinton was first running for president (92-93ish).

oh weird, in NZ I was brought up with a similar one but with goldfish O_O ie. "M-N-O Goldfish!" "O-S-A-R! .. C-D-B-D-I!"

Never heard of it with ducks. I like the shirt though, makes me smile.

No account?
