t-shirts with inscriptions on them may be in vogue these days according to an india today publication. but one young lady in calcutta found out that trying to be fash- ionable in this way can have serious drawbacks. as she strolled along , dressed in trendy baggy trousers an an eyecatching t-shirt, she noticed some chinese boys point ing at her and laughting hysterically. she questioned them and was told that the in- scription on her t-shirt was a message in chinese that read: i am a bald coconut- head baboon. and anyone who can read this should make fun of me as i am the greatest fool to have displayed an inscription in a language which i am unable to either read or write.
