At Faro airport yesterday a family were queuing in front us at check in, the daughter was about 13/14 she was wearing a sweatshirt with the logo “ I 💕BJ’s” …on the back it says “salty but sweet”.
My husband and I were really shocked.

The bar has sweatshirts for very young children but without the wording on the back just the name and location..

I'm not sure what BJs are?

I think I can guess what the letters stand for. Think of Monica Lewinsky.
Totally inappropriate and wouldn’t want to see this on anyone of any age.

I assume BJ’s is either a bar or a surf shop in this instance.

Just looked, beach bar in Portugal, they sell branded clothing.

The mind boggles.

Grim.

shock

I did just Google and it seems to be a popular restaurant on The Algarve, allegedly even mentioned on Breakfast TV.

Presumably BJ are the initials of the restaurant owner.

It's obviously meant to be provocative a bit like Fat Willy's

Agree with timetogo. My mind is totally boggling.

I glanced very quickly at the message and thought it was Boris Johnson!!! grin

No different to French Connection’s FCUK a few years ago.

With all the publicity hopefully the business will stay afloat, it’s not been an easy few years.

Am so immature. Laughing at Fat Willy's. Need to get out more.

Callistemon21 Tue 12-Apr-22 10:02:09

Well, it was lost on me.

I must get out more.

Germanshepherdsmum Tue 12-Apr-22 10:09:22

Never liked FCUK either. I must be turning into Mary Whitehouse.

JaneJudge Tue 12-Apr-22 10:12:09

Fat Willy's is the same sort of thing surely
maybe i am the only person on this thread that has been to Newquay blush

I remember when Fat Willy’s started in Newquay JaneJudge. We holidayed in Cornwall a lot in 1980s. Their shops spread really quickly. Brilliant eye catching logo.

I worked in Newquay one summer but before Fat Willies were invented (or sex, for that matter).

Fat Willy’s is not the same, this is a sweatshirt saying I heart BJ’s , salty but not so sweet on a teenager.

It’s really very provocative, the parents must be very naive or plain stupid.

Given the location of Salty but Sweet on the garment, my mind immediately went back to when I was a little boy, and read it as Big Jobs.

Salty and sweet at the cinema

... I think we all slowly morph into her, kind of anyway.

She was ridiculed like heck at the time - but my late-ex, quite a liberal-minded chap, thought she got some things right and agreed with her often... to the point he was frequently derided himself when among other 'chaps'.

Boris for me too! Obviously things don't have to make sense any more!
