the difference between D and G in a tattoo

Most Americans are unaware of it, but this year, the mighty Geelong Cats won the Australian Football Premiership (Championship).

A Cats fan known only as Neville was so thrilled that his team won, that he decided to celebrate the championship by having the team emblem tattooed on his arm.

He was quite specific as to what he wanted his tattoo to look like. In fact, he gave the tattoo artist written instructions.

Right arm: Day Premiers 2007 and the Geelon Cats emblem.

Left arm: Night Premiers 2006 and the names of two of his grandchildren.

Well, that was the plan, anyhow. Unfortunately, his tattooist was from Thailand and didn't quite get it right.

It seems that he accidentally replaced the "D" on "Day" with a "G." That means that Neville's new tattoo reads "Gay Premiers 2007."

In addition, the tattooist took the instructions quite literally. So, above the tattoo on each arm, Neville has the appropriate arm specification. The right arm says "Right Arm" and the left arm says, well, you get the picture.

Neville, um, isn't happy.

The tattoo is, however, very neat and color coordinated.
