That sentence makes no sense! Or is that what’s funny? The toddler-speak that Android users seem to be afflicted with?
If not, then can someone explain it? I assume most people over the age of 2 can speak better than that. Then again, serious “phone heads” (aka “BONE HEADS”) do seem to have a language all their own.
I don’t get it either…I hear just fine on my HTC One X…in fact, many times I have to pull it away from my ear because it is so loud.
It’s suggesting he knows all the features of the phone but is unable to do a simple task like turning the volume up. It’s funny.
I think it’s suggesting the man knows all the fancy functions on the phone although doesn’t know how to perform the simple task of turning the volume up. It’s funny in that case.
The caption reads: “I love all the features on this Android. I just wish I could hear on it.”
What I’d like to know is how anyone hears ON anything? We usually hear WITH things or occasionally just LISTEN. But to hear ON something makes no sense since the act of hearing isn’t a physical thing that can be placed on something. So shouldn’t that word “on” be removed or possibly replaced with the word “with”?
It’s a small change but a big improvement if the caption read:
“I love all the features on this Android. I just wish I could hear it.”
- or –
“I love all the features on this Android. I just wish I could hear with it.”
See the difference (and what a small insignificant typo can cause)? I get the humor, but what a workout!
A group of otters is called a “raft”; the term is no doubt derived from the appearance of large groups of sleeping otters, which link their hands together while slumbering afloat and create a large, brown, furry raft-like shape in the process.
