Sunday Snaps 110
It's election time here in Germany and posters are springing up everywhere. I saw this one last week and did a double take.
My brain read it as "mission impossible", in other words the Green Party think that it's impossible for them to be elected...then why waste your vote on them?
I have since discussed this with my German teacher who reckons that it's actually a play on words and that "mischen" is meant to be read as "bischen", so then the poster reads "a little possible", which to my (positive) mind is also very negative.
Germans, attempting word play, it was never going to be pretty.
