Came across this interesting t-shirt for sale. Certainly has overtones of UUs rebelliousness, but something about it doesn't sit right with me...

The misspelling? ;)

(I know it's an alternate spelling and more common in Britain, but I don't like the way it looks. :B )

Ha!!!!Didn't catch the mispelling. Here is a quote from the item description on the website:

From the Designer
These Hawaiian musical instruments of doom have links with Al Queda (according to slightly exaggerated reports). Thankfully, you can rest easily knowing that such tuneful devices can't harm you now.

Or

For those daring to venture forth, here (http://t-shirts.cafepress.com/item/ukeleles-are-prohibited-white-tshirt/7368005) is the url

It's my understanding that it's an alternate British spelling. I think I remember reading that somewhere once. The Internet is never wrong. ;)

Many pronounce ukulele as "yoo-ka-lay-lee", "yoo-ka-lay-lay", "yoo-koo-lay-lay" or "yoo-kay-lay-lay" but it's actually "oo-koo-lay-lay". And for short it's "ook" instead of "yook".

Ditto to Laron.

Also misspelled is the "s" at the end. There is no such word as ukuleles. Plural for more than one is "na `ukulele", or just leave off the s, as in,
"How many `ukulele do you have?"

Love this stuff. Would've been a pretty cool shirt, otherwise.

So Rap Replinger should have said "Barry get na 'uku, Barry get na 'uku" not "Barry get da 'ukus, Barry get da 'ukus" ?? :D
