And the poor little girl’s turning blue

dear unkyel batjay,

doon po sa kantang “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-dot Bikini”, ano po ba doon ang yellow, yung bikini o yung polka dots?

nagmamahal,
gentle reader


dear gentle reader,

tanginangyan, di ko alam ang sagot.

who knows what thoughts lie in the mind of the songโ€™s composer. for all we know, yellow ang kulay ng bikini at yellow din ang kulay ng polka-dot.

ingat,
unkyel batjay

  1. i was thinking yellow-is-the-bikini initially but after some thorough reflection (talagang nag-ponder kuno lol), my guess is polka dot ang yellow, polka dot being a noun. had it said polka-dotted, then bikini it is. thought-provoking Q…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Yun nga atang bikini ang dilaw. dilaw na may polka dot. Ah, basta ang alam ko e napaka liit nya. Pero considering na nuon pang 60’s yang kantang yan e palagay ko, malaki pa rin yan by today’s standard.

  3. kagulat-gulat naman ang sagot mo kuya! hahaha… parang natulala si gentle reader ah!

    i think yung bikini ang yellow tapos may polka dot. parang nakakalito talaga sya… ay naku!

  4. ilang taon ko na rin itong pinag-iisipan at hanggang ngayon ay conflicted pa rin ako.

  5. could be, batjay, re yellow both polka dot and bikini. lol @ the precious time spent deciphering which is what

    lol too @ thelfole and cillhosis…

  7. nung buhay pa yung “superstar” show ni ate guy, naalala ko na kinanta niya ‘to tapos nakatakip siya ng twalya….and …at the end (keri nio “to) nilaglag bigla ang twalya at bumulaga ang two-piece swimsuit na suot nia at yellow ang background tapos black yung dots.

    or yellow yung towel tapos si ate guy yung black…

    sori po…early signs of dementia…hehehehhe

  8. Kung yellow ang bikini, ano ang kulay ng polka-dots?
    Kung yellow ang dots, ano ang kulay ng bikini? Kung pareho silang yellow, di ba plain na lng yon? Or pedeng lighter shade of yellow either the bikini or the dots? Hay! Pahingi ngang tubig na may yelo!!
    Sakit sa ulo!

  9. you really crack me up!

    I insist the polka-dots are yellow hehehe

    KULIT mo!

    BTW bakit walang update si Jet? Please pa-kamusta & tell her to take it easy in the hospital ha.

  10. lol @ different shades of yellow

    lol raul @ ate guy anecdote. definitely yung one dot na nakita mo, hindi polka dot; nunal sa face mebbe ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. siguro kahit ano pa man ang kulay nung dots eh hindi na makikita kasi sobrang liit nga yung bikini, di ba? hahaha

  12. I am so glad that relationships are not based on deciphering tough, tough puzzles such as this.

    Na-stress ako dun mylab! Whew!

  13. hmmm…
    kapag sinabi mong stripes na yellow yung nasa damit mo, yellow yung stripes.
    kapag sinabi mong polka dots na yellow, yellow yung polka dots???

    pero kapag sinabi mong yellow yung stripes, stripes din naman yung ibang kulay…

    so, buti na lang nakigulo lang ako sa usapan. ๐Ÿ™‚
    merry christmas na lang sa pasko!

  14. yung bikini ang yellow…kasi ung kulay yellow at polka-dot eh dini-describe lang ung bikini…kumbaga adjectives sila…

    i hope malinawan na si gentle reader…:)

    btw…i am a newbie here po…nice blog!

  15. hindi kaya yellow ang bikini at ang mga polka dots ay walang kulay dahil in truth ay mga butas lang? see through kumbaga. tumambling din ako dun ah.
